Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSD/DIB) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims can be a challenging endeavor. Those who are unable to work often rely on SSD and SSI benefits to meet their basic financial needs. While the Social Security System is set up to provide benefits for those who cannot work due to a disability, the Social Security Administration turns down almost 65 percent of people who first apply for disability. Every year, more than 1 million individuals give up on their claims, even though they continue to suffer from serious physical, mental and emotional challenges.
Any individual can pursue a claim for a benefit, however, having the help of a knowledgeable and persistent disability benefits lawyer can make the difference in being denied and getting your benefits. In fact, the Social Security Administration’s own statistics show that those who use a lawyer are far more successful in winning their claims than those who don’t. Around half a million claimants who pursue their claims through the appeals process eventually win the benefits they are legally entitled to.
Mr. Alexander has represented hundreds of clients in this area from the application level through the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. He has obtained over a $1,000,000.00 in retro-active benefits on behalf of his clients and provides hands-on contact with clients through in-person appointments, personal telephone calls, and in-person witness preparation meetings prior to the hearing. His extensive knowledge and experience in this area qualifies him to represent claimants in federal district court where he has prevailed in a majority of appeals taken.
