Are You Struggling with Denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in the Woodlands?
For over 20 years, Marc Whitehead & Associates has successfully fought wrongful denials of Social Security Disability benefits.
If you haven’t done so, we can help you prepare your initial application. Our Woodlands Social Security disability attorneys know what the SSA is looking for in an application for Social Security Disability benefits. The key for winning your Social Security disability claim is to carefully and fully prepare the claim to clearly show the medical and vocational evidence that you are disabled.
You may have applied for SSDI benefits only to receive a denial letter. Don’t panic — this happens to many applicants. You have a right to appeal a decision to deny Social Security Disability benefits. But you’ll want to make sure you don’t repeat the same mistakes you made on your initial application. Get help from the experienced Woodlands TX Social Security disability benefits attorneys at Marc Whitehead & Associates. The records show that less than one out of three claims not represented by a Social Security Disability lawyer are approved by the SSA.
However, with attorney representation, your chances of a successful Social Security Disability claim doubles.
Attorney Marc Whitehead is Board Certified in Social Security Disability Law by the National Board of Social Security Disability Advocacy. Since there are strict deadlines for filing an appeal, we’ll immediately go to work to perfect your claim, and submit it by the deadline. We will also represent you in administrative hearings and argue your case before the Appeals Council.

Are You a Disabled Veteran in The Woodlands, TX?
Qualified veterans have the right to VA disability compensation for physical and/or psychological impairments. This tax-free financial benefit is available if you have suffered disabling illness or injury as a result of active military service. This can be for combat and non-combat related impairments, as well as for some post-service disabilities.
Unfortunately, in order to obtain disability compensation they deserve, veterans in Texas and across the U.S. are forced to endure a very complex and grueling claims process. For example, the VA claims process is extremely backlogged. Disabled veterans face unending regulations, procedures and red tape. Applying for VA benefits often seems like an exhausting, endless ordeal.
Was your claim for VA disability compensation denied? It could be your initial application was wrongly denied on the grounds that your impairment isn’t service connected, isn’t severe enough, or existed prior to military service. You may have received a VA rating that you disagree with.
Marc Whitehead & Associates represent disabled veterans who reside in The Woodlands and surrounding communities, including Conroe, Huntsville, Willis, Spring, Humble, Kingwood, Tomball and Magnolia. You’ll be in good hands – Woodlands TX disability attorney Marc Whitehead is accredited by the VA to assist you in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of your claim for VA disability benefits.
We are honored to represent veterans at all levels within the VA disability system:
- Before the VA Regional Office
- Before the Board of Veterans’ Appeals
- Before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims
Don’t get lost in the system. Our mission is to cut through the red tape and get you the disability benefits you have earned and deserve. Contact Marc Whitehead & Associates to discuss your Woodlands TX VA disability benefits claim.
Marc Whitehead & Associates Represent LTD Insurance Claims Locally In The Woodlands and Nationally
You may be one of the many local residents who work in and around the Woodlands TX who have purchased group Long Term Disability (LTD) insurance policies through their employers. You may have purchased your LTD insurance privately through an insurance agent. These plans are designed to provide financial support in the event that the policyholder becomes too disabled to work.
While insurance companies make it easy to purchase an LTD insurance policy, they often make it difficult to collect disability benefits. Private insurance companies like Prudential, MetLife, Lincoln National, Liberty Mutual, the Hartford and others are notorious for unfairly delaying, denying and terminating LTD benefits.
Are you in the initial stages of filing a long term disability claim? Marc Whitehead & Associates can help you prepare and file a rock-solid LTD application. You may be asked to file for SSDI benefits as a prerequisite to having your LTD claim approved. Before you do so, talk to us. This could end up costing you thousands in benefits. Contact us to learn about our long term disability application assistance.
Was your claim for LTD benefits denied? State laws and federal ERISA laws give you the right to appeal. With our assistance, you can avoid the mistakes that sank your first claim. We’re prepared to take your appeal all the way to Federal Court if necessary. You can win the battle against a big insurance company by having disability lawyers on your side who are even more resolved, prepared and able than they are.
In addition to LTD claims, we also help with short term disability (STD) benefits denials for insurance policies provided by your employer or purchased privately. In fact, some LTD insurance plans are designed so that a claim for short term disability insurance is the requisite first step to filing a long term disability claim.
The Woodlands Attorney Marc Whitehead Answers Disability Claim FAQs
We receive this question a lot from clients. Is there a special type of lawyer who represents clients in disputes with insurance companies and government disability benefits? Who can represent those who are wrongfully denied or delayed disability benefits?
The answer depends on the nature of the disability claim:
— If you need help with long-term disability (LTD) claims, you need a lawyer experienced in disability insurance law, but also experienced in personal injury law and knowledgeable about medical conditions that cause disability.
— If you are seeking Social Security Disability (SSD), an attorney from our office in The Woodlands who is board certified in Social Security Disability Law would be your best option. In most cases, LTD applicants must file for SSD benefits as well, so your attorney should be knowledgeable in both areas.
— For VA disability claims, claimants should hire an attorney who is an accredited veterans claim attorney and who can represent them at all levels of the VA disability system, including the VA Regional Office, the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
Mark Whitehead & Associates has experience handling all three types of disability claims and also has the right people to handle the job. If you need legal representation, our lawyers in The Woodlands can help.
Yes! At our law firm in The Woodlands, we offer professional assistance in application and filing for both private long-term disability claims and group claims sponsored by employers. The chances are that you have questions about your application for LTD benefits if you have already started one. Claims forms themselves are often the most troublesome part of the process. Providing insufficient information or providing incorrect information will almost guarantee that your claim will be denied. There is too much at stake for you to risk being denied based on an incomplete claim. We can help you make your claim as strong as possible so you stand the best chance of success. Visit the long-term disability claims page for more information.
Many of our clients in The Woodlands cannot make it to our office. You can work with us remotely as well as in person. You can rest assured that we will still be able to assist you in the best way possible.
Regardless of where you live, or what kind of disability you have, we can assist with any aspect of the application or appeal process that seems complicated or frustrating.
