SSD Lawyers

If you are suffering from a severe injury or illness that has permanently cost you the ability to earn a living, the Social Security Administration (SSA) might be able to provide you with benefits through a program called Social Security Disability insurance, or SSDI.

Most people don’t get benefits on their first try


Something that can significantly help your shot at SSDI is hiring a Surry County Social Security Disability attorney


Having an expert working on your claim means having an experienced eye and a master negotiator on your side. Even if your claim has already been denied, Rutter Mills can help.

Compassionate Lawyers

If you believe your long-term or permanent disability could prevent you from returning full-time to the workforce, you might have a viable SSDI claim. That does not mean your claim will be granted. In many cases, the SSA will deny your claim on the first attempt.

This does not mean you will never recover monetary benefits. While appealing a denial can be difficult, the process is simpler with the guidance from our team of  Surry County Social Security lawyers.

In many cases, the benefits provided by SSDI are less than the wages you earned prior to your disability. This might tempt you to try to work in addition to receiving benefits. You are allowed to maintain part-time employment. At most, you can work 20 hours per week. That said, your efforts to work could arouse suspicions with the SSA and cause them to investigate your medical condition. If they determine you are well enough to return to work full-time, they could cancel your SSDI.

One question that is commonly asked of our Surry County lawyers for Social Security disability is, “When do I get my first check?”. First of all, according to federal law, you must wait five months from the date your disability begins to obtain benefits.

Next, there are additional factors that could impact this process. You must provide all the necessary medical records as soon as possible. If you do not do this, SSA could sit on your claim for months.

If the SSA requires a medical examination or takes additional time to review your application for quality control purposes, the process could take substantially longer.

Finally, the complexity of your condition could also play a role in the length of time your claim takes to process. Simpler injuries might not take as long, while complex issues can take much more time to review.

If you are ready to move forward with your SSDI claim, the Surry County Social Security Lawyers lawyers at Rutter Mills are ready to help. We have dedicated our practice to helping our residents and we will aggressively approach every SSDI claim or appeal. If you have questions about the process, we have the answers you need.

What I loved about my Rutter Mills experience was the team approach they provided from start to finish. The paralegal Selena D. was always keeping me updated and accurately collecting information to make sure my case was on a strong foundation. My attorney, Adam Lotkin raises the bar to the highest standard. Adam's knowledge, experience, and grit afforded me the strongest settlement in my case. Top 1% settlement is the best way to describe it. Your attorney matters and I am so glad I choose Rutter Mills, Adam Lotkin, and team to represent my case. I will use Rutter Mills again for my future needs.
