SSI & SSDI Attorneys in Tamaqua, PA

Was your disability claim denied by the Social Security Administration? You’re not alone. An enormous number of Social Security disability claims are denied every year.

Since 1922, Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLC has advocated for injured workers, motorists, and Pennsylvania residents in every kind of accident claim.

Social Security Disability Claims FAQ

Why Was My SSDI Claim Denied?

Some of the common reasons the SSA denies claims include:

  • They think you’re capable of earning too much money
  • They don’t think your injury meets the standard of a “disability”
  • Your application didn’t include enough treatment records

The reason your claim was denied could be any number of things, which is why it’s vital to get an attorney on your case.

How Does Social Security Define a “Disability”?

The Social Security Administration defines a disability as any impairment that keeps you from “substantial gainful activity” for a year or longer. The standard for “substantial gainful activity” is whether you’re able to earn at least $1,260 per month (as of 2020). If your impairment keeps you from earning that much money every month, then you’re disabled under Social Security law.

Can Immigrants Get SSDI Benefits?

Absolutely. Social Security disability benefits are available to foreign-born, non-citizen workers as well as U.S. citizens. Workers must either have a green card or a worker visa to qualify. Additionally, you must have 40 work credits, which roughly translates to about 10 cumulative years of minimal employment.

However, if you’re a young worker and you haven’t earned 40 work credits yet, you may still qualify. Your best bet is to speak with an attorney if you’re unsure.
