When an accident or illness leaves you unable to work, your next step may be to apply for Social Security disability benefits. However, while you do have a right to these benefits, the process to obtain them is generally long, complicated, and frustrating. Thankfully, with the help of the attorneys at Shlesinger & deVilleneuve, you don’t have to go through the process alone.
We’ve helped thousands of Oregon residents with their Social Security disability cases over four decades. We’re familiar with both the Social Security system and its administration, and we can help you navigate all aspects of your case.
To qualify for Social Security disability benefits, you must have extensive evidence and data to prove your disability. Missing evidence can create problems with your application, delaying your approval. The team at Shlesinger & deVilleneuve knows what evidence you need, as well as how to document and verify it. We can make sure you take all the appropriate steps to get your application right in the first place.
Besides the extensive level of evidence necessary for benefit approval, there are also innumerable forms and paperwork. When you’re adjusting to your disability, sitting down and working your way through forms is likely the last thing you want to do. That’s why we employ skilled and experienced support staff to help process your paperwork – correctly and efficiently.
Filing for Reconsideration
With our extensive experience in filing for Social Security disability benefits, we have a strong track record of getting our clients’ applications approved the first time. However, many people need to file for reconsideration to start receiving their rightful benefits, even with minimal problems in their application. If you receive a denial notice, we’ll immediately start the process to file your application for reconsideration and get your rightful benefits.
Whatever questions you may have about the Social Security disability benefit process, the attorneys at Shlesinger & deVilleneuve are here to help. As with our personal injury clients, we work on a contingency basis, only receiving payment upon approval for benefits.
