Experienced Legal Help With Long-Term Disability Claims In Alabama
When you’re unable to work because of an injury or illness, you may be eligible for financial benefits through your company’s long-term disability insurance plan or through the federal Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. Unfortunately, the process for obtaining these benefits typically involves miles of red tape. One small misstep could result in having your claim denied.
Long-term disability claims are complicated. That’s why they are the primary focus of the Pennington Law Firm, LLC. Birmingham attorney John Pennington has more than 30 years of experience handling all types of disability and insurance claims in state and federal courts.
Together with his staff, Mr. Pennington can help you with:
- ERISA claims: The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) regulates the benefits employees can receive from employer-provided insurance plans or retirement plans. Our firm can help you protect your right to benefits covered by ERISA.*
- Social Security Disability Insurance: SSDI benefits are monthly payments available to disabled adults with employment history. We help clients complete the complicated SSDI filing process and appeal SSDI applications denied by the Social Security Administration.
- Supplemental Security Income: This is another program administered by the Social Security Administration where eligibility doesn’t depend on work history. Disabled adults and disabled children under age 18 may qualify for SSI benefits.
- SSDI for children: In qualifying circumstances, disabled adult children of Social Security contributors may be eligible to receive benefits after they “age out” of SSI eligibility.
*Don’t act on your own! Many people don’t realize that once they exhaust their administrative appeals, they cannot file new evidence in support of their claim. Don’t risk having your benefits denied because you failed to get the proper evidence into the administrative record.
