Understanding Social Security Disability (SSD) Claims with Zerbe & Pence

What Is Social Security Disability Insurance?

Nearly everyone has heard of Social Security, but many do not realize the functions it serves. One of the main roles of Social Security is to provide disability insurance for those unable to work due to physical or mental issues that prevent them from doing so. Anyone who works in the United States pays a small percentage of their earnings to the Social Security Administration for this and other functions. When a West Virginia, Ohio, or Kentucky resident finds themselves disabled to the point that they cannot work, they rely on Social Security Disability (SSD). There are legal standards regarding who can receive SSD compensation. Unfortunately, sometimes issues arise in the process that prevent claimants from receiving their money. Zerbe & Pence, PLLC, can represent these individuals and fight for the compensation they deserve. Give us a call today at (304) 345-2728 or contact us online for an SSD consultation in Charleston.

Attorney Pence is very open and honest about whether the appeal has merit. In fact, there is only a fee if our client wins their case, to make sure the appeal is advantageous for all parties involved.
