Roose & Ressler has provided local and personal service to clients like yours with disability claims for decades. We understand the challenges they face and believe that each person is entitled to be treated with respect and dignity. Being local has advantages, too. Our attorneys will always meet with your clients to review their cases. Our knowledge of local medical providers helps us successfully request and obtain the medical evidence needed to prove our clients’ cases. We know the local administrative law judges and how to best present their cases. And we work hard to help them obtain benefits that often are key for them to maintain their independence.
Our reputation matters to us. We count on referrals from local sources to whom we feel accountable. You may be aware of national firms that draw in clients with slick advertising and then provide minimal and sometimes substandard services. You can provide a valuable service to your clients by steering them away from far-away representatives.
Keep us in mind if you have a client who might benefit from our services or just need an answer to a Social Security disability question. We’d love to partner with you in helping your clients navigate the financial aspects of disabling medical conditions.
As a Social Service agency, you see clients with chronic medical problems that significantly impair their ability to work. You help your clients in various ways, perhaps helping them to obtain food, shelter, and medical treatment; provide transportation; or qualify for government benefits, such as food assistance and Medicaid. But you might wonder if they would also qualify for disability benefits through the Social Security disability insurance or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) programs.
Eligibility for these programs is complicated and determined by many factors, including non-medical questions relating to the patient’s (and their family’s) finances, age, education, and work experience and whether their work has earned them an insured status under the disability insurance benefit program. This is all in addition to the critical medical issues: whether their conditions result in symptoms and limitations that meet Social Security’s standard of disability and whether there is enough objective documentation to prove it.
