Lehigh Valley's Social Security Disability Attorney

If you are disabled, MHK Attorneys will provide you the social security disability attorney you need to get the money you deserve.

Our Experience

Thousands of disabled workers never receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits because they become discouraged and give up. Many valid claims are initially denied and are only successful once they are appealed. It is important to have an experienced advocate from MHK Attorneys on your side. We have more than 25 years of SSD experience in Pocono Summit, Brodheadsville, and Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and know the ins and outs of the Social Security Administration. We will not be satisfied until you have the benefits you have earned, and do not collect fees unless we obtain these benefits for our clients.

What is Social Security Disability?

SSD is a Federal program that provides assistance to people with mental or physical disabilities. If you have suffered a disability through personal injury or mental illness, have worked long enough to qualify, and have paid your social security taxes, then you are insured by the government and can receive payments.

Many Types Of Disabling Conditions Apply

Our firm receives many questions from people who are unsure whether their disability qualifies them for SSD benefits. Almost any physical or mental disability that prevents someone from working for at least a year can qualify. The difficulty is in demonstrating the disabling condition when symptoms are not easily visible. This is a frequent issue in cases involving post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain disorders.

SSD Benefits, Not Welfare

You have had FICA tax taken out of your paychecks throughout your working years. This is done for exactly the situation you find yourself in now. You are required to have worked at least five out of the past ten years and have a disability that is expected to last at least 12 months in order to qualify for benefits. Our lawyers can help you get these benefits that you are entitled to during your time of need. The benefits are retroactive, so once your application is granted or you win your appeal, you will receive SSD from the time you were first disabled.
