Denied Disability in Indianapolis, Indiana?
The Social Security Administration denies approximately 60 percent of all initial applications. Denials occur for a variety of reasons, including insufficient documentation that proves a particular condition is disabling.

I will guide you by gathering the necessary documentation such as physician’s opinions and medical records and working relentlessly to prepare your case for the strongest presentation at a hearing with an administrative law judge. I will work to ensure that your records are complete and prepared. I am an experienced Indianapolis disability attorney who frequently achieves reversals of denials for my clients.
Social Security disability can include the following types of benefits:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides an income to workers with a critical injury or illness that prevents them from working prior to the Social Security Retirement age. Applicants must have an injury or illness that will or has prevented them from working for 12 months or more, and they must be actively seeking out medical treatment for their condition.
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a needs-based program that gives individuals an income in situations when SSDI contributions do not qualify for the benefits, yet they meet the financial eligibility requirements. In addition, they must meet the same disability definitions that apply for SSDI.
- Disabled Widow or Widower gives an income to widows or widowers (aged 50 to 60) based upon their spouse’s earnings record.
- Disabled Adult Child gives an income to a disabled adult based upon the earnings of a retired or deceased parent, as long as the disability arose prior to age 22.
The process to obtain disability benefits can be difficult, complex and tremendously frustrating due to encompassing regulations that require comprehensive and extensive knowledge of related legal and medical guidelines. As an experienced disability attorney, I can assist you with the process and improve your chances of obtaining benefits successfully.
