Social Security / Disability

Social Security disability benefits consist of monthly payments and/or medicare benefits which provide compensation to those who are totally disabled from performing substantial gainful employment.

If you believe that you may be entitled to Social Security disability benefits, you may apply in person at your local social security office or by phone (1-800-772-1213) or mail. Unfortunately, many people are initially turned down for Social Security disability benefits, even though they actually do qualify under the Social Security Administrations's guidelines.

If you have been denied Social Security disability benefits, your time to appeal a negative decision is strictly limited by time. If you believe you have been wrongly denied Social Security disability benefits call Robert P. Eshelman, P.A. for a free consultation.
