Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is a complex process that requires accurate filings and proof of your disability. Mistakes or omissions in your application can lead to claim denial and a complicated appeal process. For more than 35 years, Sperling Law Offices LLC has helped disabled individuals in Milwaukee and throughout Wisconsin apply for benefits and fight unfair denials.
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits
Before applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you should be certain that you fit their definition of a disabled person:
- You cannot do the work you did previously
- Your medical condition prevents you from doing other work
- Your disability is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
In Wisconsin, the Disability Determination Bureau (DDB) makes the medical determinations. The DDB operates through the Department of Health Services Division of Health Care Access and Accountability. Disability examiners and medical professionals at the DDB:
- Collect medical evidence from your doctors, clinics, and hospitals
- Inquire about your daily activities and work history
- May request you submit to a medical examination, free of charge
The DDB will evaluate the evidence to decide if you fit Social Security’s definition of disability. Our law firm provides legal guidance throughout the application process. If you need help with applying or have questions about denied claims, our Social Security Disability lawyers are experienced at every level of the process.
