Helping You Secure Social Security Disability Benefits

Social SecurityApplying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a lengthy and complicated process without a lawyer by your side — and you and your family may not be able to wait. At Goebel Law Office, it is our goal to make this process as efficient as possible, and to ensure you receive the full benefits to which you are entitled. With offices in Georgetown and Madison, we have helped numerous clients across Southern Indiana secure the benefits they so desperately need.

Should You Apply For Disability Benefits?

The biggest question many people have is whether or not they are even eligible for SSD benefits. While everyone's claim is unique, you generally have to ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have a physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working?
  • Has that impairment lasted for 12 consecutive months, or is it expected to last that long?

If you answer yes to both of these, it may be worth beginning the application process.

What Should You Do If You've Been Denied?

One simple mistake on your application can cause you to be denied benefits. If you are denied — don't give up! You have the right to appeal your denial, and to appear before an administrative law judge to explain your disability in person and fight for the benefits you deserve.

A Social Security Disability attorney can not only help you through the application process, but also work with you throughout this appeals process.

How Goebel Law Office Can Help

No matter where you are in the process, Goebel Law Office can offer invaluable counsel to get you the benefits you need. Some clients come to us at the very beginning, and we start helping right away at the initial filing stage. We represent other clients who have filed the initial claim themselves but were denied.

  • We make sure that the Social Security Administration has all the information it needs, and that all forms and other required documentation are complete.
  • We work closely with your doctors and therapists to obtain the appropriate reports and records.
  • We answer all your questions and keep you informed about the status of your disability claim.
  • We prepare you for your appeal hearing, walking you through the process so it is less overwhelming and intimidating.
  • We collect information from friends and family members that may be helpful to your case, preparing them to testify in your appeal hearing if necessary.

There is no risk to get started — we offer free initial consultations to discuss your claim and to get started. Call one of our offices to schedule your appointment, or send us an email for more information.
