Social Security Disability
If you have been turned down for Social Security Disability benefits in South Carolina, call the lawyers at Harrison, White, Smith & Coggins, P.C. We have helped thousands of disabled workers succeed with Social Security Disability claims.
Social Security Disability (SSD) is an insurance program funded by your payroll deductions to Social Security. To receive benefits, your disability must be severe enough to prevent you from working in any job for at least twelve consecutive months. You must also have worked long enough at a job covered by Social Security prior to your injury.
While you can apply for Social Security Disability benefits on your own, the process is both complicated and time-consuming. The majority of people who apply for SSD benefits are turned down initially.
If your application has been turned down, you will receive a letter from the Social Security Administration. This letter will notify you of your right to a hearing before an administrative law judge. You should hire an experienced South Carolina Social Security Disability attorney to represent you at this hearing. Our lawyers have a track record of helping clients obtain benefits after their initial applications have been turned down.
We handle all Social Security disability cases on a contingency fee system, which means that you pay no attorney fees unless we are successful in obtaining benefits for you.
