just wanted to thank you for everything you did.I was awarded my disability in a very short time your'e the best!

It's notes like this that makes all the work that goes into winning worth while.

My claim is at the Appeal Council now but I have faith in your company. I know that you all are working hard for me. I get updates from my caseworker Aleesha M. on my case often. I am hoping to hear good news from her soon.

You guys have been wonderful so far. I haven't won my case just yet, but the responsiveness of your staff to my questions far exceeded anything I expected. Thank you, in advance!

I just received notice that I was approved for my disability. You guys are amazing, compassionate and every staff member I spoke to was so professional. Thank you so much

Your staff is the best. They have been so wonderful. I haven't won my case yet, but the I am still hopeful since I have you all working for me. Thank you in advance for all your help.

I just wanted to know that during such a dark time in my life, your firm is my glimmer of hope. I haven't won my case yet but I have complete confidence that you will come through for me.

I'm very pleased so far how well your staff is with calling back. I am impressed with the turn around time when I receive paperwork etc... I pray that my case will take a shorter time than 18 to 24 months. Not being able to work and having very little income is quite frightening.

I want to tell you all Good Work! I will most definitely recommend you to my other MS friends.
Take Care!

i have alot of fear since i became disable, also as a vet of 8 yrs, and over 25 years of steady work, i am now afraid of the future, i feel safe that B&B is handling my case, but i am already 1 year into the process, i hope i dont go the whole 24 mos..

i also agree on the fast response on call backs and pray my case is handled quickly, i am homeless, separate from my kids because of this situation, Our next move is sleeping in a tent in the woods. I have been telling everyone about Binder and Binder.

Can I receive Social Sercurity Disability and Long term disability from my job at the same time while I was disable? Since I returned to work Social Sercurity is garnishing my check. I cant make ends meet.

I was a truck driver for 15 years but i have not worked in 5. While on the job, I had back problems (back award) including bulging and degenerating discs. While on the job, i was diagnosed with open angle glaucoma. My night vision quickly changed for the worse and my company would not accomodate me. Could I qualify for SSD? It's been 5 years and I continue to have chronic back pain and limited vision, but I have always had too much pride to attempt getting financial help.

You can qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) if you have a doctor who will say that you are unable to do any work, not just your previous work. If you are 55 or older, you just need to prove that you cannot do your past work.

The other issue you might have is a Date Last Insured problem (DLI). When you stop working, your eligibility for SSD runs out approximately 5 years after you stop working. You have not been working for 5 years, so your eligibility may have run out already. If it has, you would need to prove that you were disabled prior to that DLI.

I suggest you contact the Social Security Administration and get your DLI. Once you have that, you will need to ensure that your doctor supports your disability before that date.

Please feel free to contact us after you obtain your DLI and we will see if we can help you.
You can complete our free, online questionnaire and we will give you a call back to discuss your case.
