FAQs

Am I Eligible for Social Security Benefits?

If you have an injury or impairment that prevents you from pursuing gainful employment for over a year, you are eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits. You have to have worked for a certain length of time and paid Social Security taxes to be entitled to such benefits. If not, you may still qualify for Supplemental Security Income.

What If My Claim Was Denied?

Even if you are eligible for Social Security benefits, many initial claims are denied. If you are initially denied benefits, don’t worry. You can request a reconsideration, and then a hearing before an administrative law judge if the initial denial is upheld. After this, you can still appeal your denial to the Appeals Council. Polly Murphy PC will work with you every step of the way to make sure all of your options are considered.

I Can’t Afford a Lawyer. Will I Still Get the Benefits I Deserve?

An attorney’s contract for representation before the SSA is controlled by certain regulations. These regulations provide that the attorney fee taken from your retroactive benefits must be the lesser of 25 percent, or $6,000 at the present time. This means you will not pay any attorney fees unless your case is won.
