Social Security Claims
Who Can Receive Social Security Disability?
If your physical condition has deteriorated through age or a lifetime of hard work so that your body cannot function as it should, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability.
Unfortunately, in my 30 years of practicing law, I’ve seen many individuals who have been denied claims. Some people miss out on those benefits because they fail to consult with a Social Security lawyer. At The Law Office of Alan Rubin, I help those in Louisville, Kentucky, file a claim for Social Security or fight a denial.
If you worked and paid money into the Social Security system all of your life and the time arrives when you are physically unable to continue working, you may be entitled to a Social Security Disability pension. Social Security is a government-funded resource to assist those individuals who, as a result of long-standing physical conditions, are no longer able to engage in employment. Again, if you have been denied, it’s to your benefit to talk with a disability lawyer.
What Kind Of Impairments Qualify Under Social Security Disability?
- Cardiovascular disease

- Musculoskeletal diseases

Highly Experienced Help To File A Claim Or Fight A Denial
If you’ve filed for Social Security and you’ve been denied, you may need an attorney to guide you through the system. We can gather your records to help prove your case.
The cost-benefit ratio of hiring an attorney for this kind of claim can be great. The Social Security Administration sets standards on the fees that can be charged by an attorney. Getting an experienced opinion to change the amount of your monthly income for years to come can pay off.
Social Security Disability FAQs
Can I afford your services?
The Social Security Administration protects claimants by limiting the fees that can be charged for representing a person before the Social Security Administration, and I only work on a contingency-fee basis, which means you owe me nothing if I do not win your case.
How can I prove I am disabled?
In order to prove disability, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will review your past medical records and look to see if you meet specific guidelines as established by the SSA. Your job is to get the treatment you need; my job is to make sure the SSA is aware of the treatment that you need for your condition.
Can the Social Security Administration send me to a doctor to be evaluated?
The Social Security Administration may send you for a consultative examination.
Who decides if I am disabled?
Initially, your case will be reviewed by staff at the Social Security Administration to see if there is support in your medical records to meet the established Social Security criteria for disability. Eventually, you have the right to a hearing before an administrative law judge, who will decide if you are disabled.
I am over 50 years old. Does that help my case?
Typically, there is a relaxed standard for people of advanced age.
