Our Michigan Social Security lawyers have experience helping people obtain Social Security disability benefits. This area of our practice has become increasingly more important as Social Security disability benefits are denied half of the time, forcing people to appeal, a process that can take years. If you are applying for Social Security benefits or have been denied a claim for Social Security benefits, you need a Michigan Social Security disability attorney with experience.

Our Social Security attorneys are able to guide you through the overwhelming maze of regulations and red tape that characterize the application process and the appeals process.

If you and your doctor feel that your medical condition prevents you from working, we strongly encourage you to contact our office to help you apply for Social Security disability benefits. The Social Security lawyers at Allan W. Ben P.C. are experts on what the Social Security Administration requires for claiming Social Security Disability benefits and for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Disability claims. Part of our job is to spare you from the hassle of waiting in long government lines and spare you from the chance that your claim might be jeopardized by government red tape. Our attorneys will take care of all aspects of your case, including the complicated paperwork.

The following is some of the information needed to apply for Social Security disability benefits:

  • Your Social Security card
  • Your original birth certificate or original baptismal certificate
  • Your driver's license, or a passport for identification purposes
  • The names, addresses and telephone numbers of all your doctors, and other health care providers, like physical therapists, chiropractors, or home nursing aides
  • Your dates of admission for any hospitalizations or surgeries

It is important to provide Social Security with as much information as possible about your medical condition and the treatment that you have received. Social Security will request records and information from all your doctors. Contact your doctors to let them know you have applied for Social Security, and encourage them to provide the necessary information when they are asked by Social Security.

For your convenience, we have provided a Social Security Intake Form (pdf) on this Web site.
