Social Security Disability 

Unfortunately, there are people in our society who are unable to generate income.  The reasons for this inability could be serious physical injury, mental incapacity, illness or any of several other unfortunate circumstances, and even though relatively few people know that it exists, there are governmental benefits available for those who qualify.

However, that's the issue with most-qualifying for benefits.  The program/payments are known as Social Security Disability, more commonly known as SSD.  Privett Law is an Oklahoma law firm with experience in providing clients with Social Security Disability representation, and this is a complicated area of law with several loopholes and pitfalls for those who do not have this level of experience.

Below is an overview of different issues that relate to SSD, and if you feel that you or someone you love may be a viable candidate for benefits, contact Privett Law today to secure an experienced Social Security Disability attorney.

Applying for Oklahoma SSD Benefits-Benefits of Having an Attorney

The first step towards  obtaining SSD benefits is completing the application process.  This is somewhat involved, and here at Privett Law I will provide you with Social Security Disability Application representation and will be able to help steer you through this process, including the medical examination and the forms that need to be filed in order to be considered. 

SSD Benefits for Adults in Oklahoma-SS Disability vs. Social Security Insurance

SSD benefits are available for adults, but there are several standards in place that must be met at a minimum in order for an applicant to become eligible for them. Not to mention, there is another form of benefit available to adults, known as SSI, or Social Security Insurance.  Basically, the person in question must be able to prove that he or she is simply unable to work in any setting reasonable, and that his or her existence will be a constant struggle without the benefits provided by SSD.  The disability required does not need to be of a particular cause or type-one only needs to prove that there is little to no chance of ever generating income.

Social Security Disability Benefits for OK Children

SSD benefits are available for children, and there are different situations in which SSD for children could be seen as a viable option.  First, a child can be eligible for benefits if he or she is shown to have some sort of illness or disability that will prevent him or her from ever becoming a viable candidate for the workforce.  Another possibility is if the child's guardian or guardians are also eligible for benefits, but this is rare and much more difficult to obtain.

Given the difficulty in securing SSD benefits for children, you need Social Security Disability representation that will allow you to manage your daily routine, which is why you need to contact Privett Law today to schedule an initial consultation.

The Disability Hearing and Determining Factors in the SSD Application Process

After the application is completed and recieved by the government, a hearing will be held to determine whether or not the applicant is truly in need of benefits.  This hearing is an opportunity to present your case in its strongest possible light, and should be prepared for with the same bigor as one would prepare for a trial.

There are several determining factors that go into the ultimate decision of whether or not benefits will be awarded, and they include:

* The applicant's physical condition
* The applicant's mental capacity
* The applicant's long-term prognosis
* The applicant's present ability to generate income
* The applicant's future ability to generate income

There are other determining factors, but in the course of the Social Security Disability hearing  representation provided by Privett law, these are sure to be factors that will be considered by the government.

The Disability Benefits Process in Oklahoma-Ongoing Benefits

Even after the hearing and even if benefits are awarded, the applicant or beneficiary should expect to maintain his or her ability to continue to receive SSD benefits for a certain amount of time.  This happens by way of ongoing medical evaluations to diagnose the beneficiary's physical condition and whether it's improving, declining or not changing at all.  The beneficiary should also expect to receive periodic psychological evaluation if mental capacity is one of the reasons for benefits being awarded.

Denied Social Security Disability Benefits in Oklahoma-Attorney Appeals
