Social Security

If you are unable to work because of illness or injury, you may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. If you have wrongfully been denied benefits or if your benefits were stopped by the Social Security Administration, you could require the assistance of Donald W. Fohrman & Associates, Ltd., qualified Social Security Disability attorneys, to obtain benefits to which you are legally entitled.

Social Security rules for evaluating disability and your work history are very technical and complicated

Our experienced Social Security attorneys know what must be done to protect claimants rights, comply with the applicable time limitations and maximize the chances of receiving an award of benefits.

For over 20 years, we have been able to maintain a success rate recovering benefits for over 85% of our Social Security Disability clients as a result of our firm’s thorough and professional approach in handling our clients’ claims.

Our firm’s affiliation with the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives(NOSSCR) provides us access to the most recent decisions of the Federal Courts and Social Security Administration and newly-enacted regulations by the Social Security Administration and research sources, all of which enhance our ability to more effectively represent our Social Security clients.

Donald W. Fohrman & Associates, Ltd., believes that when individuals are unable to work due to a disability, applying for Social Security Disability benefits is simply asking the Government to return the money they have invested into the Social Security program so that they may lead their lives with dignity. The Federal Government has established effective procedures for collecting your money while you are working (withholding taxes). However, when seeking Social Security benefits from the Government, you are placed at a distinct disadvantage having to deal with the extremely complex and confusing Social Security Disability system.

Unfortunately, many Social Security Disability claimants become frustrated and discouraged after being rejected at the initial application stage and simply “walk away”, thereby forfeiting their legal right to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

In an effort to “level the playing field,” our firm provides three (3) basic services to Social Security Disability claimants:

  1. A free, no obligation telephone consultationin which a qualified Social Security Disability attorney will evaluate your claim and determine if we can achieve successful results on your behalf.
  2. Represent your interests before the Social Security Administration on a 100% risk-free basis. If we recover back benefits on your behalf, our contingent fee is 25%. If we are unable to recover benefits, you pay no fees whatsoever.
