The Social Security system is a difficult and frustrating one at best, infuriating and impossible at worst. The money paid into the system over a lifetime of work is the important nest egg that most of us plan to use for living expenses throughout our golden years, so that we can remain self-sufficient and not become a burden on our family and friends. In some unfortunate cases, injury or disability force a worker into early retirement before they reach the minimum age to collect benefits from Social Security, leaving them filled with doubt and anxiety over what to do next.
Fortunately, the Social Security Administration provides for this potentiality with the Social Security Disability Insurance and Supplemental Security Income programs. However, as with any program of the Federal Government, multiple layers of confusing bureaucratic paperwork often causes many people to give up their search for the money and compensation for which they worked and labored over a lifetime.
An experienced Social Security lawyer trained to sift through the bureaucratic red-tape can help ensure that you receive the rightful compensation for a lifetime of hard work. If disability has prevented you from working during your final years before the earliest retirement age, consult one of our experienced Social Security lawyers as soon as possible, and so that you can make sure that the government gives you everything that you are owed.
