Is filing a social security claim worth the time and effort?
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits is not a walk in the park. Many people assume that applying for Social Security Disability benefits comes with minimal complication. In fact, over 80% of cases are denied at the initial application. Although this can be a discouragement and frustrating experience, it is important not to give up so that you don’t lose benefits that you are really entitled to. Thus it is vital that you appeal your denial if you really feel that your condition prevents you from working. Here at the Soloway Law Firm our team of experienced attorneys are ready to help you fight for your benefits at every level of your claim.
How can I stay afloat while waiting for social security benefits?

Is there a way to get my Social Security Disability benefits faster?
Yes, the Social Security Administration is obligated to provide SSDI and SSI benefits quickly to applicants whose medical conditions are very severe and which obviously meet Social Security’s definition of disability. This is allowed through the Compassionate Allowances Initiative. This is not a separate program from SSA’s two disability programs, SSDI and SSI, rather it is simply a way to expedite a claimants application should his or her medical condition meet the “List of Compassionate Allowances Conditions” (“CAL”). Individuals with a qualifying CAL condition may receive a decision on his or her claim in a matter of weeks instead of months, or years. The current CAL list is available at: https://www.ssa.gov/compassionateallowances/conditions.htm. Contact the Soloway Law Firm today to speak to one of our experienced attorneys to see if you qualify.
How does Social Security Define “disability”?
Disability is governed by your inability to work. The Social Security Administration considers individuals to be disabled under their rules if they meet the following criteria:

1.) The claimant cannot do work they did before;

2.) SSA determines that the claimant cannot adjust to other work due to his or her medical condition(s); and

3.) The Claimant’s disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Don’t hesitate! Contact the Soloway Law Firm today to speak to one of our experienced attorneys to see if you qualify for disability benefits.
What is the attorney fee in Social Security Disability Cases?
Here at the Soloway Law Firm we take social security cases on a contingency basis, meaning that we don’t get paid unless we win your case. Moreover, attorney fees are limited by Federal law. The Social Security Administration (“SSA”) can approve a fee of 25% of any back-due benefits, up to $6,000.00, which ever is less. For example, if you win your case and you are entitled to $10,000.00 in back-due benefits, the Social Security Administration will deduct $2,500.00 from this amount as our fee and send it directly to us. You will then receive a check for your back due benefits for $7,500.00. Our fee is only deducted once, and all future benefit checks are free of any attorney fees. Attorney fees awardable may exceed the $6,000.00 cap only when your case has to be litigated beyond the SSA, in the Federal Courts.

Will I be entitled to Medicare health insurance benefits if I get Social Security Disability benefits?
Yes. If you win your social security claim and are awarded Social Security disability benefits (“SSDI”), you will qualify for Medicare 24 months after the date you became eligible for monthly disability benefits. Thus it is important for you to take action at once and apply for SSDI benefits. Unfortunately, your dependents will not be eligible for Medicare even if you are.
