When Joint Damage Keeps You Out of Work for a Year or More
At Binder & Binder®, we represent clients throughout the United States in Social Security Disability matters related to many different kinds of joint damage. Our clients are generally hard working people who want to provide for themselves and their families, but cannot due to a disabling condition that keeps them out of work for a year or more.
Our advocates represent people with many different types of injuries, disorders and chronic pain that have affected their legs, knees, ankles and joints, including the conditions listed below:
- Multiple Joint Disease
- Osteomyelitis / septic arthritis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Knowing When to Apply for SSD or SSI Benefits
You should apply for Social Security Disability benefits as soon as you and your doctors agree that your disability is going to last a full year. You are not eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if your joint damage doesn't last a full year, so many people have to wait to see what happens with their medical conditions. Others who have been struggling to work should apply as soon as they stop working.
