Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a litigation attorney here to assist you.
You certainly have the right to file for disability with your local Social Security Administration office. If you cannot work, and if you can get medical justification for your inability to work, you should have a great chance at getting disability.
Even if you're denied initially, there are several levels of appeal that you can go through until you either get disability or exhaust the appeals process.
Should I get short term disability from employer first, then long term? I need to pay bills. Can I apply for SS disability while getting employer disability?
