Social Security Disability

If you suffer from a physical or mental condition that prevents you from working, consult with the attorneys at Mette, Evans & Woodside before you apply for social security disability. Our attorneys have a comprehensive working knowledge of the entire social security disability application process.

Social Security Disability (SSD) is for people, who during their employment history, have amassed enough work credits by paying Social Security payroll taxes. To be considered for social security disability you must be suffering from a severe condition that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death or that prevents you from performing the work you did or any other work at substantial gainful activity levels.

Statistics from the United States Social Security Disability Insurance Program show that nearly 60% of applications are denied. Anything from incomplete information to improper medical records can result in denial of the disability application. Completing all necessary forms correctly is crucial to a successful application. We will guide you through the entire process providing you with information about answering questions appropriately, proper documentation of condition and chronicling your treatment history to ensure that your application is accurate. The attorneys at Mette, Evans & Woodside are ready to guide you through the application process and help increase the chances of a favorable outcome.
