John Moneyham is experienced in working with most physician practices and medical clinics. Medical professionals often play an important part of a successful Social Security Disability claim.

An administrative law judge is usually where a Social Security Disability claimant appears before to work towards winning the Social Security they deserve. John Moneyham can be involved with your Social Security Disability claim to achieve the best presentation of your claim.

4. Who may I have to appear before to receive my Social Security Disability benefits?

The inability to engage in substantial, gainful work activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months is how the Social Security Administration defines disability.

You can apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as you are no longer able to engage in substantial employment.

7. Will I be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits if I am already receiving Workers' Compensation benefits?

I believe the best way to improve your opportunity to receive Social Security Disability benefits is to hire an experienced Social Security Disability attorney. John Moneyham will work with you to lead you through the process in the best favorable light.

8. Is there any way to improve my chances of receiving Social Security Disability benefits?

The Social Security Disability Hearing before an examiner takes place after an initial application denial, and also after an appeals denial. It is at this point where we recommend that you definitely have legal representation if you have not secured legal representation before this event. John Moneyham knows how to present your Social Security Disability claim before the judge, which may include medical personnel assistance, family assistance, or friend assistance in appearing with testimony to help strengthen your claim.
