At the Law Office of Lindsay Preston Rand in Braintree, Massachusetts, they have spent 35 years helping individuals throughout Massachusetts complete their initial application for benefits and follow the process through to its conclusion.

To get approved for SSDI benefits, you must establish that you have been disabled or unable to work due to a physical or mental impairment that is expected to last at least 12 months or result in death. You must also meet specific criteria regarding how long you have worked, how recently you worked, your age, and other factors. In addition, you will need to show evidence that your condition meets the requirements established by the Social Security Administration (SSA). This includes medical records from any doctors who treated you as well as other types of evidence such as occupational therapy notes or records from hospital stays.

The filing process begins with submitting an initial application for SSDI benefits. After your application is received by the SSA, it will be reviewed by a Disability Determination Services (DDS) representative who will evaluate whether your claim is valid based on the evidence provided. If your claim is denied at this stage, then you may appeal the decision within 60 days of receiving notification of denial. During this appeals process, there are several levels of appeal including reconsideration review and hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).  Attorney Lindsay Rand is here to clear the confusion and help you make sense of it all.  In fact, Lindsay Rand is the leading authority on social security disability, having made pioneering contributions to the field.
