Help You Get Benefits

If you're unable to work in Utah due to any combination of significant injuries or illnesses, you may have rights to government-administered Social Security Disability payments under the Social Security Act. However, most applications filed without the assistance of experienced disability lawyers are denied, usually forcing an extended disability appeal which can last for two or more years. Meanwhile, a successful application represented by a SSD attorney will result in disability payments being disbursed to you in the form of a U.S Treasury check starting with the sixth month of your extended disability (there is a five month waiting period during which the government does not pay for your disability).

Utah Social Security Disability Options

If you're thinking about using the Social Security Early Retirement option because you can no longer perform your customary work in Utah. A Salt Lake City SSD attorney may be able to show you how to preserve your full retirement benefits while collecting tens of thousands of dollars under Titles II and/or XVI of the Social Security Act.

If you are an UT widow[er] over 50 and you've become disabled within 5 years of your spouse's passing, you may be able to claim Social Security Disability benefits on your deceased spouse's higher earnings record, thereby increasing the amount of money the government sends you for your disability payments each month.

If you've had a prior application that has been denied within the prior four years, a Salt Lake City Social Security Disability attorney can make a motion to re-open that application.

You Need SSD Attorney Representation
for Your Disability Hearing

If you've got a hearing that has already been scheduled, call our SSD lawyers immediately, 24/7 with the date and time of your Social Security hearing. Understand that if you appear at a hearing without a disability attorney, the judge will request that you consider adjourning your hearing in order to allow an experienced Social Security lawyer to provide you with a better chance of winning. The judge may even just require one adjournment so that the record is clear you've been given every last opportunity. Then, if your hearing is adjourned, the delay may cost you several more months of waiting before you get the judge's initial decision. Appearing without experienced counsel can also result in waiver of rights or failure to recognize what objections should be raised or preserved in the process.

Social Security Disability Lawyers
in Salt Lake City Can Help

The Social Security Disability attorneys at Montano Arentz and Associates know how to win your Social Security Disability or SSI claim. We'll vigorously cross-examine the government's medical and vocational witnesses against you. Your claim did not get to the hearing level without evidence in the record which is contrary to your interests, or unless you've failed to meet one of your burdens of proof (probably due to a legal technicality that your doctor didn't realize when writing your medical reports). Don't take the chance of allowing unfavorable evidence to obtain undue consideration when our attorneys might be able to get that evidence struck from your hearing record. Don't march blindly forward, suffering undue delay, when our attorneys can spot and cure technical defects rapidly and potentially assist you to avoid the DSS hearing process altogether.
