Are you suffering from a disease that is restricting you to go to your work? Are you the only earning member of your family? How will you manage to feed your family? Why don’t you apply for SSD (Social Security Disability) benefits? This will help you to run your family even when you have no source of income. However, when applying for SSD benefits, it is imperative to get yourself a legal representation. There are plenty of reasons behind this. However, the most important one among them is – near about 70 percent of initial applications are rejected by the SSA (Social Security Administration). So, if you have an experienced and competent lawyer by your side, your application is more likely to get accepted for further proceedings.
