Time is of the Essence in obtaining your Social Security disability benefits!


We have all heard the news stories about Social Security not being around forever. As the economy remains on shaky ground, Congress is looking at ways to cut the deficit and Social Security disability remains a top issue for cuts. Congressman Steven Latourette recently posted on his website, "Insolvency Looms as States Drain US Disability Fund." One area being looked at as a way of cutting the budget is to become more strict on who receives Social Security disability benefits.

What would stricter eligibility requirements for Social Security disability mean for you?

Now is the time to apply for Social Security disability benefits! If the eligibility requirements to receive disability benefits become stricter, many Americans will be unable to receive Social Security payments who are currently eligible to do so. Congress may pass a bill limiting SSI and SSDI payments any day.

What should I do to apply for Social Security disability?

The first step is to contact the Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers and discuss your specific disability and need for Social Security benefits. Our experienced case managers and disability attorneys will review your case and develop a plan of action designed to increase your chances of obtaining your disability benefits.

How could a change in the law impact the amount of benefits I receive?

Procrastination can make the difference between a lifetime of cash money or a lifetime of bills. Congress may restrict funding and eligibility requirements any day. In addition, current Social Security rules state that you only have a specific number of days from the start of the disability to apply and also specify additional time-lines between appeals. Therefore, it is imperative that you contact the Cochran Firm Disability Lawyers right away so that our experienced SSI and SSDI attorneys can start working your case immediately.
