Your injury or illness may entitle you to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits under the federal Social Security system. Social Security claims are made on the basis of an illness, either mental or physical, or injury that prevents you from working for at least 12 months. There are many injuries and illnesses that may qualify as a reason for your inability to work, including:
- Workplace injury
- Bipolar Disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder

A Denial Of Benefits Does Not Mean Your Case Is Over

You need an attorney to review the likelihood of success upon appeal, to help you decide whether to appeal the initial decision.
