Social Security Disability
The Social Security and Disability system can be a complex and overwhelming one to anyone who needs to apply for these benefits. Initially, the process involves satisfying the criteria that you will in fact be disabled for at least a year or more because of an illness or disability.
At Karns Law Group, we have extensive experience working with individuals who have received notice from their doctor that their injury or illness will disable them for a year or more, and who are eligible to file for Social Security Disability compensation. We are well versed in managing and navigating the structured system of forms, hearings, and compliance required when filing for these kinds of government benefits.

In addition to any Social Security benefits, you may be eligible for Medicare benefits. These benefits are available to you even if you are under 65 in some cases. We will be able to determine not only your eligibility to apply, but will also be there to assist you throughout the process .
As a family practice, we understand that the injuries and medical conditions that prompt you to apply for Social Security Disability benefits may be difficult. We will treat you with the respect and dignity that you deserve. Even if your claim has already been filed, we will be able to assist you throughout the balance of the process. Remember that under the Social Security system, even one missed deadline can mean the difference between keeping your case active, having to start all over again from the beginning, or having it dismissed entirely. Because of these strict guidelines, and according to national statistics, working with a professional, experienced Social Security Disability attorney may increase your chances of receiving benefits.
In handling your Social Security claim, you may expect us to:
- File the application
- Work with your doctors
- Prepare you for your hearing and stand by you during it
- Keep you informed of our progress on your case and where you are in the process

Medicare and Medicade
If you are awarded Supplemental Security Income benefits from the Social Security Administration you will automatically be eligible for Medicaid.
Medicare provides health insurance coverage to individuals over the age of 65 and the disabled. Medicare is a benefit paid for by tax revenue and moneys deducted from Social Security checks. Medicare, like Social Security Disability, is a benefit that you have worked and paid for. Medicare is an essential program for providing health care for the disabled.
If you are awarded Social Security Disability Insurance benefits you will receive Medicare coverage after two years of receiving benefits. In other words, you are not eligible for Medicare until two years after the first month that you are entitled to receive monthly benefits. You will receive information for Medicare a few months before you become eligible for benefits.
