Social Security Disability

The Social Security Administration relies on a complicated and often confusing set of regulations in determining whether an individual is entitled to Social Security Disability benefits, which may be why statistics show that people represented by attorneys have a greater chance of success than those without an attorney representing them.

­­­If you believe that you are no longer capable of working due to a disability, we urge you to contact Cobourn & Kyriakakis, L.L.P. as soon as possible. Many people who are currently unable to work are, understandably, reluctant to apply for disability benefits. However, the law limits the amount of back benefits (those that have accrued prior to your application) that a disabled person can collect, so failure to apply in a timely manner can easily result in lost benefits to the disabled individual.

At Cobourn & Kyriakakis, L.L.P., we can handle your Social Security Disability and/or Supplemental Security Income claims at any point in the application process, even assisting you with your initial application when needed. As always, there is never a fee for your initial face-to-face consultation with one of our attorneys. If we are successful in obtaining disability benefits for you, our fee is 25% of your accrued back benefits. The majority of your accrued back benefits, as well as all of your future benefits, are yours and yours alone. Additionally, most Social Security Disability recipients become eligible for either Medicare or Medicaid benefits, which can truly be a lifesaver for those who are otherwise medically uninsured.

We understand that the Social Security Disability process can be complex, time-consuming, and even intimidating to those who are seeking benefits. It can also be a great burden on an individual who is already dealing with the perils of a serious injury or illness. We are here to help you, and welcome the opportunity to discuss your case with you in further detail.
