Helping You Get the Benefits You Need
If you are unable to work due to a disability, you may be eligible for either Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. At Rittgers & Rittgers, our attorneys can help you determine your eligibility and complete your application.
Have You Already Applied and Been Denied?
If you have already been denied, do not give up. The vast majority of initial applications are denied. The staff at the Social Security Administration (SSA) has little time to devote to each application. If they do not find what they are looking for at a glance, they will deny the claim. Thankfully, there is an appeals process available. Our Cincinnati Social Security Disability lawyers are here to answer your questions and help you through that process.
We will review your application to determine what, if anything was missing, and submit a request for reconsideration. Even a well-prepared request for reconsideration may be denied, so we are always ready to take the next step: a Social Security appeal hearing.
Prior to the hearing, everything is done in writing. The hearing gives us a chance to present medical documentation and other evidence to an administrative law judge in person. We understand how to present the evidence in a manner that makes it perfectly clear why you are eligible for Social Security benefits. This is where we typically achieve success.
