Her service with Social Security gives her a unique advantage when defending SSDI and SSI claims before Social Security judges.
Many individuals do not even know Social Security benefits exist for individuals under retirement age and for children. The Social Security standard for evaluating disability is very different then what most people think of "disability". Adults who are unable to work due to a physical and/or mental condition, children who cannot function at an age appropriate level, and those unable to perform normal activities of daily living (ADLs) may be eligible to apply for Social Security government disability benefits. Examples of disabling conditions, include chronic pain, heart attack and other cardiovascular disorders, respiratory disorders, neurological disorders, cancer, premature birth & birth defects, depression, anxiety, learning disability, developmental delays, vision problems, speech impairments, herniated disc and other back/spine impairments, and many other physical and mental conditions. There are numerous other conditions for which Social Security considers disabling. You may think the condition you are suffering from would not be considered a "disability", but by calling our office for a free consultation you can easily find out - 305-414-0001 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
