Social Security Disability
For every dollar you earn, the government takes about six cents from you and an equal amount from your employer for social security. These taxes are imposed to provide you with monthly benefits when you retire or if you become disabled and can no longer work. Yet for some reason, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are notoriously difficult to get. Most people who try are turned down. Shea Fugate has been helping people get these benefits for 30 years. She knows what it takes to be eligible for SSD and understands the claim process backward and forward. In addition to navigating the massive social security bureaucracy, Shea is one of the few attorneys who appeal denials in Federal Court.
