BACK PAY?
In addition to winning steady monthly payments, many of our clients are awarded substantial lump-sum disability payments that cover the months or years dating back to when they first became disabled.

These awards are generally sizable and can help you pay off your home, your car, or other existing debts that leave you struggling month after month. To find out how much back pay you may be eligible to receive, contact Klain & Associates today for a free, no obligation consultation.

Our Personal Approach

Advocating for the Rights of the Disabled

Unlike many disability law firms that take on thousands of cases without ever getting to know their clients, our team takes your pain personally. Our associates are compassionate, knowledgeable and dedicated to your success. We understand the challenges you face when living with a disabling condition and we want to help ease your financial burdens so you can enjoy a more comfortable life.

When you hire our disability lawyers to advocate on your behalf, you become a member of our family. We are genuinely concerned about your well-being and helping you overcome the obstacles you face.

We take the time to listen to your story, answer your questions, address your concerns and make sure you’re prepared as your case moves forward.

Since we only handle Social Security Disability cases, we concentrate 100% of our efforts on obtaining approvals and overturning denials for our clients through the appeals process. Our focus on disability law helps ensure that you make informed choices that maximize your chance for a successful claim.

Have You Been Denied?

We Can Help

Every year, millions of disabled people turn to the Social Security Administration to obtain benefits. Unfortunately, more than 70% of applicants are denied benefits when they file their initial claims.

In 2018, more than 2 million disability applications were received by SSA field offices across the U.S. Only 733,879 were approved. Those who hired disability attorneys from the very beginning had a higher rate of success than those who chose to file without legal assistance.

Although many people who are denied SSDI benefits are truly disabled, mistakes, omissions and simple communication errors prevent them from achieving success. While some people go on to apply for reconsideration and appeal adverse decisions, others simply give up and continue to struggle financially.

For the people who decide to pursue their disability claims, hiring an SSDI attorney significantly improves their chance of overturning a denial. According to recent surveys, 60% of people who hired disability lawyers were approved for benefits at the ALJ hearing level compared to just 34% of people without legal representation.

Whether people are initially filing for benefits or appealing denials, the higher rates of success experienced by those with disability attorneys likely occur because SSDI lawyers are familiar with the claims process and what it takes to build a strong disability case.

What Social Security Disability Programs Are Available?

If a disabling condition is impacting your ability to work, the SSA offers programs that may help you make ends meet.

Pro Tip: Which social security disability programs and services are right for you?
There are a number of disability programs and other services available that can help you achieve a more comfortable life.

In addition to SSDI or SSI, Medicare and access to Vocational Rehabilitation Services, you may be entitled to benefits through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), SSDI benefits payments for your minor children and spouse, educational assistance programs and help getting back to work. To determine which benefits might be a fit for you, contact our disability attorneys today.

Do You Qualify

SSA Decides if you Qualify for Benefits

There are a number of factors that are considered when determining whether you qualify for disability benefits. During the initial application process, an employee at your local field office will determine whether you meet the nonmedical requirements for SSDI benefits. He or she will look at your work credits, age, any substantial gainful activity (SGA) and your relationship to the insured worker. If you pass the initial review, your claim will be forwarded to the area Disability Determination Services office.

Disability examiners and medical professionals will then evaluate your condition to determine whether you meet the disability guidelines under Social Security law. They will look at your medical records and other evidence from doctors, hospitals and other healthcare providers. The SSA will request information about your physical or mental conditions and how it impacts your ability to perform work-related activities. As the evaluation process proceeds, the DDS may need more information to help them decide your claim.

You may be asked to attend a consultative examination. You might need to provide more details about your ability to perform daily activities. The DDS may also request more information about your previous work.

This information is used to determine whether:

  • You are working at the SGA level
  • Your condition is severe
  • Your impairment meets or is equal to one that is listed in the SSA Blue Book Listing of Impairments
  • You are able to perform the work you performed before you became disabled
  • You can perform any other type of work

If your claim is approved at this level, you will join more than 8.5 million Americans in receiving Social Security Disability Benefits. If you are denied SSDI benefits, you have the right to file an appeal or reapply.

How We Can Help

When you enlist the help of our disability lawyers to pursue your claim, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Our firm understands that money is probably tight when you’re living with a disabling condition.

We offer free case evaluations to determine whether we can help you win SSI or SSDI benefits, so you won’t have to pay out of pocket to find out if you have a valid claim.

If we determine that we can help you win your case, we’ll take the financial risks involved with pursuing disability benefits on your behalf. We’ll obtain your medical records and help you gather other important evidence to support your claim. We’ll apply for reconsideration, file appeals, prepare you for medical evaluations and the Administrative Law Judge Hearing

and go to battle on your behalf to help ensure you win. And you won’t pay any attorney’s fees until we win your case.

Since we get paid directly from the SSA when you’re awarded benefits, you won’t even have to write us a check. Our fees are calculated as a percentage that is taken from your lump-sum back pay and they are capped at $6,000. Your future disability benefits payments are yours to keep.
