Helping You Pursue Social Security Benefits in Michigan

Many individuals are denied disability benefits and supplemental income under Social Security when they apply. The rules, conditions, and application for obtaining these benefits are complicated and you must provide sufficient evidence to the Social Security Administration to prevail. Because of this, it is important to consult with an attorney who is experienced in what is needed to win your benefits case or to make a successful appeal.

At Tanis Schultz, we have been providing effective legal representation to individuals seeking the Social Security benefits they deserve for many years. Many people need these benefits to pay for basic necessities just to get by. Our firm is dedicated to helping you succeed in this crucial task.

Social Security Benefit Cases

At Tanis Schultz, we provide legal assistance with the following benefits cases:

  • Social Security disability claims
  • Supplemental security income claims (SSDI)
  • Supplemental security income overpayment

Two programs have been established for Social Security disability benefits. Social Security disability/retirement survivor’s disability insurance (SSD/RSDI) has been created for individuals with a prior extended U.S. work record while Social Security income (SSI) is available for individuals without prior work history who are either U.S. citizens or legal residents. Under these programs, you are generally entitled to receive disability benefits if your disability is expected to last more than 12 months. Our Grand Rapids Social Security disability lawyers can assist you with your benefits case regardless of which program applies to you.

The process for securing Social Security benefits is complex. In many cases, you can jeopardize your application with unintended mistakes and by taking the wrong action. Should your initial application be denied, you will have 60 days to file an appeal. Waiting lists for appeals can be as long as two years which is why it is vitally important to retain the services of a qualified Grand Rapids social security disability attorney from the start.
