Connecticut Disability Attorneys

A disabling illness or injury creates many difficulties. The severe physical and emotional pain resulting from the disability itself is traumatic. When the disability prevents you from working and results in lost income, a frustrating experience becomes emotionally demanding and discouraging. This loss of income, and the resulting inability to support your family and pay your bills, especially over a long period of time, can be personally devastating.

The attorneys at Axelrod & Associates, LLC understand that such difficulties can be emotionally draining and physically overwhelming. If you are disabled and in need of help, please contact us. We will review your situation and discuss your eligibility – and that of your family members – for financial assistance from both the Federal and State governments.

The Federal government provides monetary assistance for eligible disabled persons who are not able to work in any 'substantial' way as a result of their disability (what the Social Security Administration refers to as 'engaging in substantial gainful activity'). To be eligible, an applicant must have a ' qualifying medical condition,' or a medical condition considered equally as disabling, and otherwise qualify under a five part test. An applicant must also apply for Social Security Disability benefits within the first five (5) years from when their medical conditions prevents them from working. This is because Social Security Disability benefits are paid to individuals who have worked and paid into the Social Security system at least twenty (20) quarters within the last five (5) years. For more information about Social Security Disability benefits, and your eligibility for those benefits, please contact Axelrod & Associates, LLC.

The Federal government also provides financial assistance to those with an extreme financial need, regardless of whether they have paid into the Social Security system within the previous five years. This program is known as the Supplemental Security Income program. The State of Connecticut also offers a variety of assistance programs to those meeting certain eligibility requirements. Often, these programs can work together to provide disabled persons with the financial assistance to avoid financial ruin. It is also important to file for benefits under any applicable short-term or long-term disability insurance policies. The attorneys of Axelrod & Associates, LLC will guide you through the complex Social Security Disability process, and work to ensure that you receive federal, state and insurance benefits for which you may be eligible.

To request the assistance of Axelrod & Associates, LLC, please contact us at (203) 285-8294 or complete our on-line information form, providing a description of your disability and how that disability effects your ability to work.

Connecticut Social Security Disability Lawyers

To determine whether you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, an application must first be submitted to the Social Security Administration. This process can be difficult and discouraging – and it is estimated that approximately 70% of initial benefits applications are denied. Obtaining approval through the appeals process can take many months, even years. Often, initial applications are denied because of incomplete documentation or inaccurate information. Axelrod & Associates, LLC works hard to avoid these problems.

While some law firms only handle appeals – after you have been denied benefits – the disability law attorneys at Axelrod & Associates, LLC are willing to work with you both before you file your initial application for Social Security Disability benefits and after a Social Security Disability benefits application has been denied. While disability benefits applications are decided individually, and no approval can be guaranteed, the assistance of Axelrod & Associates, LLC can help eliminate mistakes that may delay or result in the denial of benefits. The disability law attorneys at Axelrod & Associates, LLC stand ready to help you file a thorough, clear and accurately documented disability benefits application. The goal of our staff is to convey to the Social Security Administration the nature and extent of your disability, its impact upon your career and life, and the factors that make you eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

To request the assistance of Axelrod & Associates, LLC, please contact us at (203) 285-8294 or complete our on-line information form, providing a description of your disability and how that disability affects your ability to work.
