Apply for Social Security Disability in New Orleans
Whether Social Security considers you “disabled” is determined by your inability to work. Under Social Security’s rules, you’re considered disabled if:
- You can no longer perform the work you did before;
- The Social Security Administration (SSA) decides you are unable to adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
- Your disability has lasted or is likely to last for at least one year or to result in death. Social Security pays only for total disability, not a partial disability.
If you fit those criteria but you’re unsure where to go from here, talk to Gary Sells today. Gary and his staff have been handling disability cases for than 35 years.
It’s all we do. If you’re ready to get the rest of your life started, talk to us today.
IS APPLYING FOR BENEFITS COMPLICATED?
Yes, it can be. You may think it’s as simple as explaining your situation to Social Security and then you get benefits.
In reality, it’s not that easy.
Applying is a complex legal process. You must prove to Social Security that you are “disabled” according to their legal definition, and you have to provide ample evidence to do so. You’ll need things like:
- Hospital records
- Doctor’s reports
- Testimonials from family, friends and coworkers
- And more
We can help. Gary Sells and his team have years of experience helping people with their disability applications.
Let us help you with yours.
WHY ARE MOST INITIAL APPLICATIONS DENIED?
The Social Security Disability system involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures. You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn’t know the legal definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee fails to obtain medical evidence on your behalf.
You can also lose your case if an appeal is handled improperly. Sometimes your doctor might not define your disability correctly. We even see clerical mix-ups lead to denials.
Gary Sells has helped thousands of people in Gretna, on the West Bank, and all over South Louisiana get the benefits they need to keep going.
