Apply for Social Security Disability in Detroit
You can’t work, and monthly checks from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) would be a lifesaver.
Then you find out how involved the application is, so you go looking for help. But most lawyers don’t help with applications. They tell you to call them back after you get denied.
To the attorneys at Levine Benjamin Law Firm, that’s not good enough.

Why Get A Lawyer for Your Initial Application?
When you’re applying for Social Security disability benefits, you have to provide pages of answers about your life. You need documentation, including records of your medical treatment and work history.
Even a minor mistake can hurt your chances of winning benefits, or cause a delay later on. Winning benefits is hard. Most people get denied.
You have to meet a strict definition of disability: Proving that health problems make it impossible for you to work any job, and that your condition will last at least a year.
Your application must be:
- Accurate: Be frank about your health problems. Don’t overstate anything, but don’t shy away from explaining how hard your situation is.
- Complete: Fill out everything the best you can and make sure to include records of doctor visits and other evidence.
- Prompt: Apply for benefits as soon as you know you can’t work. When you’re awarded benefits, you get back benefits covering a period that starts with your application. So it’s best to file as soon as possible.
At Levine Benjamin, we file your claim for you — to give you the best chance at winning benefits. The earlier you get us involved, the better.
You can be denied Social Security disability benefits for many reasons. Levine Benjamin Law Firm helps you appeal.
Most People Get Denied
It’s hard to win Social Security disability benefits. In recent years as many as two-thirds of initial applications have been getting denied.
Some people think you can just explain your situation to Social Security and show them a doctor’s note, but it’s much more complicated than that.
Social Security has thousands of rules. You might get denied because a Social Security employee fails to obtain all your medical evidence, the government uses the wrong legal standard to evaluate your claim, they think you’ll somehow make a complete recovery, or your appeal isn’t handled properly.
At Levine Benjamin, we analyze your claim and help you understand your odds. We don’t charge any attorney fee unless you win. And we evaluate your case for free.
