Lowell Social Security Disability (SSDI) Lawyers
If you live in the Lowell area and have become disabled from work due to a documented medical condition and have worked at least five (5) out of the past (10) years, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits. Your monthly SSDI benefit is entirely dependent upon how much money you have earned in the past and thus how much you have paid into the Social Security trust fund.
Due to the Lowell area providing workers with many physically demanding jobs, many Lowell area workers become disabled from work due to a wide variety of physical and mental impairments. For more information on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), please visit our SSDI FAQ’s page.
Unfortunately for many who deserve and are entitled to Social Security Disability (SSDI) benefits, their claims are denied upon the initial application or at the request for reconsideration stage of the claim. Often times this is due to the claims examiner being overburdened with applications to review. A denial of the request for reconsideration forces a claimant to request a hearing before an administrative law judge at the Social Security Administration’s Office of Adjudication and Review. If you have been denied Social Security Disability Insurance benefits after a request for reconsideration, there is a strict sixty (60) day deadline for which to file a request for a hearing.
