If you or a loved one suffers from a disability that makes it difficult ― or impossible ― to work and earn a paycheck, Social Security Disability benefits may provide you with a much-needed lifeline. Whether you are just beginning the claims process or your claim has already been wrongfully denied, Philip J. Fulton Law Office can help you. We have been doing this since 1980, and we understand what it takes to get results.
Whether your disability is the result of a work-related accident or any other type of accident or condition, you will find that our disability attorneys will do everything possible to get you the full benefits you are entitled to. Our reputation is for getting results in even the most difficult cases. No matter what obstacles you believe stand between you and Social Security benefits, you can be certain that we have the ability to overcome them.
Are You Eligible For Social Security Benefits?
The specific type of illness or injury does not necessarily play a role in eligibility for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. Qualifying for benefits instead depends on whether you have been disabled for at least 12 months or you will be disabled for that long or longer. Additionally, whether or not you paid into the Social Security system impacts the benefits you are eligible for.
We can assist with all aspects of the Social Security process. We can determine whether you qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, which are the most common, or if you qualify for the less common Supplemental Security Income benefits. We can also help you pursue benefits if you are working part time.
You do not need a lawyer to help you file for benefits. The Social Security Administration will help with all of the initial paperwork and documentation. However, we are certainly available to assist with this simple part of the process.
Our decades of experience become most important after you get a denied SSI/SSDI claim. A denial is not the end of the road by any means. In fact, denials are extremely common. We know the next steps to take to get you benefits. Contact us today and we will answer any questions you may have about SSD benefits.

Our services are available on a contingency fee basis, which means we ask for payment only if we are successful in getting you the benefits you need.
