Social Security Myths
At the law firm of Reyes & Reyes, we talk to many people who are confused about Social Security Disability benefits and how to get them. It can be a complex system, but we are here to guide you through it with as little stress as possible. With more than five decades of experience, our attorneys can reveal the truth about Social Security myths such as:
- I was denied benefits the first time I applied, so I have no reason to talk to an attorney. False. The truth is that between 70 and 90 percent of all people who apply for benefits are denied the first time. In such cases, contacting a skilled lawyer is important because he or she can help you file an appeal.
- I should wait and see if I fully recover before asking for money. False. Because there is only a specific window of time to apply for benefits, you should talk to a lawyer right away. Do not wait.
- I can only get benefits if I have a very serious-sounding condition. False. Any type of injury or illness that prevents you from working can make you eligible for benefits, even if it doesn't sound very severe. For instance, depression may not sound as serious as brain cancer, but they may both prevent a person from holding a job.
