Chattanooga Disability Attorneys and Team at Eric Buchanan & Associates Can Help With Denied and Delayed Social Security Claims

Clients need skilled and experienced representation when they need to file a disability claim and the Disability Team at Eric Buchanan & Associates serve clients with Social Security claims over a large area. Located centrally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Eric Buchanan and his staff know disabled people need money sooner, rather than later, but the backlog in disability claims processing at the Social Security Administration has many claimants teetering on the edge of deep financial ruin. The disabled face a long wait for a determination of benefits and many have faced unemployment for months and mounting medical bills. Some have had their homes threatened by foreclosure, eviction, and utility shut-off notices. Weeks turn into months and hope slowly fades. Credit scores take a nosedive.

The increase in the number of disability claimants was anticipated; however, the Social Security Administration was still unprepared for the flood of disability claims, and it simply created a bigger backlog in an already overloaded system.

The staff at Eric Buchanan & Associates can help. Our team helps the disabled get the benefits they deserve by helping throughout the claim and appeal process, and by providing the Social Security Administration with complete information and proof of benefits deserved, which will lower the risk of the claim being rejected on a simple omission. Our staff also represents clients in their appeal if they have filed a claim on their own and are denied. We understand the challenges the disabled face and the importance of getting the benefits they deserve. Give us a call. Let us help you.
