Obtaining Social Security Disability/ Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can be a challenging and lengthy process. The application process involves submitting extensive documentation of one's medical condition, financial situation, and work history, and the Social Security Administration may request additional information or medical evaluations. In addition, many initial applications are denied, and applicants may need to appeal the decision and attend a hearing before a judge. The entire process can take months or even years, and it can be especially difficult for individuals who are already struggling with a disability and financial hardship. However, with persistence and the experience of Attorney James Dolenga right from the beginning, it is possible to obtain Social Security Disability benefits.
