Why Should I Hire An SSD Attorney?
Many people attempt to go alone when seeking disability benefits. Most learn the hard way that the Social Security Administration rejects a majority of initial RSDI and SSI applications. Though rejected applicants can file a Request for Reconsideration, in most cases they will merely repeat omissions or mistakes that led to the rejection of the application in the first place.
If you intend to file an RSDI or SSI application or if your application has already been rejected, you should speak with an attorney.
At Turner & O’Connell, Attorneys at Law, we are experienced advocates for people who cannot work due to disabling medical conditions. We have helped many people in central Pennsylvania obtain Retirement Survivors and Disability Insurance (Retirement Survivors and Disability Insurance, RSDI sometimes referred to as SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, and we want to help you.
Your initial consultation is free. We can review your case, explain the RSDI and SSI process, and discuss how we can help you. Contact our firm to schedule a consultation.
Helping You Get the Disability Benefits You Need
If you have already applied for RSDI benefits, you understand how complex the forms and required information are. Attorney Johanna Rehkamp has extensive experience with RSDI and SSI cases, including reconsideration requests and appeals. She will draw upon this knowledge and experience when representing you.
