A Law Firm Dedicated to Individual & Employee Rights

Social Security Benefits

Attaining Social Security Benefits can be very challenging, but Lebau & Neuworth provides sturdy guidance and representation to clients to help them maneuver through the many phases of Social Security Benefits claims. Because a disabled person must go through several complex procedures to receive Social Security Benefits, we strongly advise seeking legal counsel from Lebau & Neuworth before filing a claim.

An individual suffering from a “qualifying” disease or condition may not automatically be approved for benefits by the Social Security Administration, which has a specific set of physical impairments for which it grants benefits. Lebau & Neuworth thoroughly evaluates each case involving Social Security Benefits, drawing on years of experience that we apply to each claim to determine if the client has a legitimate basis to receive benefits.

What’s more, many disability contracts require employees to apply for Social Security as a condition of receiving benefits so that the insurers can offset their costs with any Social Security Benefits received by the employees. That’s why an insurer may try to push an employee towards Social Security – with only the insurer’s best interests in mind.

Social Security Disability Insurance

The Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program is available to employees who suffered an injury or have a m­edical condition that prevents them from working regularly. Administered by the Social Security Administration, SSDI is an important source of income for millions of people – but many persons are denied the SSDI benefits they deserve.

Lebau & Neuworth works with clients who are seeking or have been denied SSDI benefits, explaining all of the requirements necessary to receive benefits while guiding them through the SSDI process. Our employment attorneys also represent individuals in appealing SSDI claims and during administrative appeals hearings, specially preparing each SSDI case so that it has the very best possibility of being approved.

Supplemental Security Income

Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a Federal income-supplement welfare program, is designated to help disabled, elderly (over 65 years of age) and blind individuals who have little or no income.

Individuals who are seeking SSI benefits or who have been denied SSI benefits claims can rely on the experience and commitment of Lebau & Neuworth to guide them through the SSI claim and rejection processes so they can receive the benefits and funds they deserve – and to which they are legally entitled. Because obtaining SSI benefits can be very complicated and confusing, it is important to have our attorneys assist in an individual’s efforts to receive SSI benefits, as we thoroughly understand the entire claims and appeals processes so that we consistently achieve favorable results.
