Providence Social Security Disability Attorney
Social Security Disability Insurance is one of the most specialized areas of the law and, frankly, one of the more difficult for the claimant to succeed. According to some studies, the success rate is around 30%. But, at the Resmini Law Firm we have 50 years of legal experience practicing in Providence and around Rhode Island. We know what it takes to succeed in an SSDI claim.
Social Security Administration Guidelines
According to the Social Security Administration, a person qualifies for SSDI if: they have a physical or mental condition that prevents them from engaging in any “substantial gainful activity,” the condition is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death, they are under the age of 65, and generally, they have accumulated 20 social security credits in the last 10 years prior to the onset of disability. The qualifying disabilities include both physical disabilities, including cancer and a myriad of other issues, as well many mental disorders that affect an individual’s ability to cope and complete daily routines. If it sounds like legal jargon that is difficult to understand, it is. But at the Law Offices of Ronald J. Resmini, LTD., we have experience and expertise to unravel the complicated Social Security laws to get the best result for you.
While the process can be complicated, recently, the Social Security Administration’s guidelines have lessened for SSDI claimants, which makes the process easier for you. The first step we will take at the Resmini firm is to get in touch with your doctor, because the “treating physician rule” has become the controlling factor in SSDI decisions. That is, if your physician determines that you are disabled, the Social Security Administration will have a difficult time finding that you are not disabled. In addition, the Social Security Administration has begun placing more weight on applicants’ pain and discomfort, mental illness, and even considers multiple non-severe ailments to be disabling. Nevertheless, the guidelines remain strict, and our attorneys are always happy to guide our clients through the process.
