Helping You Obtain The Disability Benefits You Need
At Cate, Terry & Gookins, LLC, we are committed to assist you through the maze of red tape, forms, appeals, deadlines and waiting that is Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) process. The process to apply for and receive benefits is a lengthy process that can take years to finally receive the benefits that you need. Cate, Terry & Gookins, LLC, will provide clear explanations about the various aspects of SSDI and SSI, and determine, along with you, the best approach to getting you the disability benefits you need. If you or a loved one is unable to work due to a serious illness or injury, we are ready to help you obtain disability benefits.
We believe you can help your case through a better understanding of the basics of Social Security Disability law and will clarify common misunderstandings, including topics such as what the Social Security Administration considers a disability; your possible eligibility for SSDI and/or SSI; how Medicare and Medicaid relate to SSD and SSI; whether SSD or SSI is based on a person’s ability to continue in the current line of work or on the ability to obtain an alternate form of employment; and a young adult’s right to continue receiving SSI after benefits received as a juvenile have expired. We will provide you with the knowledge you need to make educated decisions as we move forward with your case.
Social Security cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, and no attorney fees are collected if you are not granted benefits by the Social Security Administration. Some fees, such as medical record costs, remain the responsibility of our clients even if you are not awarded benefits.
If you have an illness or injury that keeps you from performing substantial work, please contact Cate, Terry & Gookins, LLC, for a free thirty-minute consultation to get your questions answered about your rights to disability benefits.
