Social Security Disability Services

Maybe you’re eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) because you’ve paid into the system through years or even decades of hard work, one paycheck at a time.

Or maybe you have a disability or medical condition that entitles you to these benefits as part of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.

In either case, getting access to those benefits isn’t as easy as it should be.

The process required can be long, confusing, and is governed by a list of rules and regulations that are difficult to navigate. It often takes a couple of years before you or your family members can receive the benefits to which you’re entitled.

Which is why it helps to have somebody with experience like Dax Lonetto on your side.

Are you eligible for social security disability benefits?

In order to determine if you’re eligible, ask yourself if any of the following apply to your situation …

  • You spent multiple years working for employers who paid into the Social Security system with each paycheck, or you owned a business that did the same
  • You currently have a disability or injury, caused either in or out of a work situation, that prevents you from doing basic work such as lifting, standing, walking, sitting, or remembering
  • You are unable to do the work you did before and/or are unable to adjust to other work because of this condition
  • Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least a year, or may even potentially result in death
  • You are the spouse, widow, or dependent of somebody living or deceased who meets the above criteria

If so, then you may be entitled to benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Which means Dax J. Lonetto, Sr., PLLC should be able to help you get the financial assistance and medical services you need to care for yourself and your family.

Know your rights. Retain your dignity. Get the help you need.

Why should you let Dax Lonetto represent you?

As a firm dedicated to disability rights, Dax J. Lonetto, Sr., PLLC can help guide you through the maze of governmental red tape, ensure all deadlines are met, and prepare your claim to present to the Social Security Administration (SSA) in the most favorable manner possible.

Dax J. Lonetto, Sr., PLLC has been helping workers obtain their disability benefits since 2007, and has the experience needed to deal with the SSA and frame your case in a way that will make it easy for the personnel at the SSA to review and make their decision.

We handle cases from initial application, through the reconsideration stage, the hearing, the Appeals Council … and all the way to the federal courts level, if needed.

Unlike some firms who either send non-attorneys to your hearings or who never speak to you until the day of your hearing, Dax Lonetto himself will be personally involved in your case each step of the way, supported by his knowledgeable team.

As a member of NOSSCR (the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives), Dax keeps on top of any changes to new or revised laws that might affect those eligible for social security benefits, and regularly attends continuing education seminars presented by NOSSCR.
