Understanding the value of filing an appeal for your SSD benefits

It can be frustrating if you have received notification that your application for social security disability benefits has been denied by officials in Mississippi. It can be equally as frustrating to receive word that your benefits are being withheld because you are no longer eligible to continue receiving them. At Davis-Morris Law Firm, we are experienced in helping people make the most of their efforts to acquire and maintain needed SSD benefits. 

How the U.S. Social Security Administration defines “disability”

Many Mississippi residents who apply for Social Security disability benefits receive denials in response to their initial claims, and if you are among them, you may be wondering what you can do to boost your chances of a successful appeal. At the Davis-Morris Law Firm, we understand that many who apply for disability benefits fail to get approval, and in some cases, this is due to their conditions not meeting the administration’s strict definition of “disability.”

Estimating health care costs for seniors

For people who are nearing retirement in Mississippi, one of the first thoughts they consider is what they need to do to begin collecting social security benefits. Supplementary Security Income or SSI is a substantial part of income for many retired individuals in the United States. Without it, many would find themselves in a difficult circumstance of not having enough income to support their lifestyle. 

What if my disability claim is denied?

You have worked as a construction framer for decades, building house after house. However, a few months ago, you severely injured your back. You’re not sure you can go back to construction work and have considered filing for Social Security disability. But what happens if Social Security denies your claim? What are you going to do then?

Applying for social security on behalf of someone else

When people are disabled in Mississippi, they have the option of applying to receive social security disability benefits. This support may enable them to continue having access to stable income despite their inability to work. Disability benefits may be temporary or they may transition into permanent support if a person's injuries are too great and will affect his or her ability to retain a job.
