Am I Disabled?

Contact Welt Law to Find Out

The Social Security Administration (SSA) considers someone disabled if he or she has health issues that keep them, or expect to keep them, from working for 12 months or more. These medical matters can be physical issues, mental disabilities or a combination of both.

If you believe that you will be unable to work for 12 months or more, contact Las Vegas Social Security Disability attorney Gerald M. Welt to discuss the options available to you in filing a Social Security Disability/Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability claim. The initial consultation does not cost you anything. As soon as you realize that you could miss work for a year or more, call us to set up an appointment. We can help throughout the process, starting with the Social Security Disability application. Attorney’s fees are structured and approved by the government and our law firm is only paid when you receive benefits. It is to your advantage to let us work for you. Claimants are more successful with the representation of counsel.

How to Qualify for Social Security Disability

If you meet the regulations established by the SSA for disability benefits, Attorney Gerald M. Welt will prove that you are unable to work for at least 12 months due to illness, disease, injury or a physical or mental disability. He will file a Social Security Disability/SSI disability claim. He will gather information to present a solid case in your favor by:

  • Analyzing the Social Security laws and determining whether you meet the SSA qualifications for disability
  • Gathering your medical records and corresponding evidence
  • Contacting your physicians/hospitals/medical services to acquire medical records and medical reports about you
  • Requesting your Social Security documents
  • Providing you with legal advice and preparing you for your Social Security Disability hearing
  • Appealing Social Security Disability decisions by the SSA

If the SSA denies your first Social Security Disability application, he will file your Claim for Reconsideration. If denied, he will present your case to an administrative law judge. At the Social Security Disability hearing, the judge will review your case and will request information including:

  • Medical condition
  • Age
  • Abilities
  • Training
  • Work experience
