Baywide Disability Advocate Services

Gavel and stethoscopeMany people struggle with physical or mental impairments for years and somehow keep on working. For others, one incident creates a medical condition that changes their life forever. In any case, if you have been a hard working individual and find yourself unable to continue working, you are probably entitled to disability from one of the Social Security Administration (SSA) plans. Unfortunately, as a disability Specialist attests, the SSA disability process is a complex one in which over 60 percent of initial applications are denied. If you have one of the following, you may be entitled to disability benefits:

  • Blindness
  • Loss of speech
  • Hearing loss
  • Advanced cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer, or
  • Leukemia

SSD and SSI

The two plans the SSA administers for those disabled are Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSD is for people who have earned enough work credits to qualify. SSI requires no work history but instead is designed for elderly and disabled individuals with limited income and resources. Baywide Disability serves clients with both types of claims.

Understanding the Process

Many of the claimants that are initially denied benefits are in fact disabled. Although some denials are for legitimate reasons, in a large percentage of cases, the claim was not submitted in manner that the SSA looks for in determining disability. For example, disability has a precise legal definition for SSA purposes, and the supporting medical evidence must be concise and incontrovertible. Baywide Disability has developed a unique approach to maximize a claimant’s chances of approval.

Representation at any Stage of the Proceedings

Establishing a solid claim with the initial application is most advantageous to the client because it allows for the earliest possible receipt of benefits. Nonetheless, Baywide Disability will accept a case at any level including initial application, reconsideration, the Administrative Hearing or the Appeals Council.

Disability Advocacy You Can Count On

The staff at Baywide Disability understands how much of an impact disability has not only on the claimant but on their family as well. We will aggressively represent your interests, encourage your interaction and keep you informed at every stage of the process.

Testimonials

“Back in July of this year, my SSA checks stopped due to getting married back in June. I found out by mail. I tried to find out why, but that didn’t work. So I just let it go for a while. That was until I saw a e-mail from Dazell Malory who investigates and works hard to help people who need help with matters like that. I contacted him and he got to work on it. It took about 3 months, but I got it back. Now my Husband and I can live the way we want and need to. If you need help, Dazell is your man.”

Ellen Nolan-Sorenson

“My SSDI benefits were discontinued after I was unable to respond quickly enough to a letter from the Social Security Administration. I feared failure to pay my essential bills, and I was overwhelmed, frustrated and desperate for a resolution. I reached out to Dazell Mallory for assistance, and he quickly stepped in and assisted me in successfully resolving the problem and restoring provisional benefits. This process would have been challenging and difficult without Mallory’s professional help. Dealing with the complex and confusing rules set by the Social Security Administration is stressful, especially when paying bills successfully is at stake. Mallory reduced my stress level significantly and fought for justice.

I got a letter from the Social Security Administration informing me that my benefits would be terminated.  Truth be told, I don’t like being on SSI, but I need it while I earn my degree.  Losing it would mean moving the X-hundred miles back to my family, and forfeiting independence entirely.  The SSA based their decision on a financial aid payment that had already been spent.  The letter I received stated that these, (now nonexistent), funds put me over the countable resources limit.  I swallowed the looming panic and called Dazell.  He got to work immediately.  He was calm, patient, professional and friendly throughout the process, and waded effortlessly through the staunch barriers of red tape.  The entire issue was put to rest in only one month.  I got the initial letter on May 30th, and received the reconsideration letter on June 30th.  My benefits resumed in a matter of days.  I am unendingly grateful to Dazell Mallory.  His unflappable determination made it possible for me to finish college, and maintain my hard-won independence.  Truly, Dazell, I can never thank you enough.
