At Rittgers & Rittgers we charge a fee ONLY if we obtain back-pay benefits for you. The Social Security Administration will pay any fee we are owed directly to us so that you will never be billed for our services. Only if you win your claim is Rittgers & Rittgers entitled to an attorney fee.

Who is eligible for social security benefits?

If you are disabled from full-time work due to virtually any medical condition, you may be eligible for Social Security benefits.

If you have a good work record and are disabled due to virtually any medical condition, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

Even if you do not have a good work record, if you are disabled from full-time work due to any medical condition and live below poverty level, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income, or SSI.

How do I file for social security benefits?

It is easy to file claims for Social Security Disability or SSI; simply visit your local Social Security Administration office where staff will help you file an application, or you may file it online.

Actually obtaining Social Security benefits, however, can be much more difficult. To prove disability, there are thousands of applicable Social Security regulations, medical listings, and vocational grids. If you are having problems getting SSI, please contact our law firm today to help you obtain Social Security Disability.

What should I do if I was denied Social Security Disability?

A majority of claims are denied initially. There are several levels of appeal. Many claims eventually require a hearing before an administrative law judge. The whole process may take one to two years to complete. Hiring an experienced lawyer will increase your chances for recovery. Please call us today to schedule an initial consultation.
