Am I eligible for VA Benefits and SSDI?

If you are receiving VA Benefits, you can still apply for SSDI. Doing so has many benefits. Please call our office for additional information. 

I was denied social security disability benefits, should I appeal?

You should examine the date on the denial letter. You have sixty days from the date you received the letter to appeal. The Social Security Disability assumes you received the letter five days after the date on the letter unless you can demonstrate otherwise.

Under certain circumstances you can reopen a denied claim if you have good cause for doing so. Please call Ficek Law for more information.
