When you suffer a sudden disability, it can be hard to know what to expect. You need to support yourself and want to make sure that you can do so, but without knowing much about Social Security Disability, you may not know what you need to do to obtain the benefits you need.

When you are hurt on the job or suffer a disability, you may be able to look at obtaining long-term disability from your employer. The Employment Retirement Income Security Act, also known as ERISA, may help you get the compensation you need, but this is a complex situation to say the least.

Don’t most people receive denials when they apply?

Many people do receive denials when they apply for disability, which is why it’s a good idea to work closely with an attorney who can help. Your attorney can help you avoid complex legal issues that could arise when you appeal a denial, for example, so you have a better chance of getting the compensation you need sooner rather than later.

If you’re unable to work and have an illness or injury that will mean that you have to stay out of work for an extended length of time, it’s time to start looking into obtaining the benefits you need and getting the support you want to help you get through this process. Our website has more information on the steps you can take to seek long-term disability benefits, so you can focus on your health instead of worrying about your financial situation. Your attorney will discuss your situation with you and help you work toward a positive resolution.
