Indianapolis Social Security Disability Attorney

At the Law Office of Annette Rutkowski LLC, I handle Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims at any stage in the process, from initial filing through administrative appeals and advanced appeals in federal courts. With offices in Indianapolis and Lafayette, I represent clients throughout central, western and southern Indiana.

Whether this is the first time you have applied for disability benefits or you have already been turned down by Social Security, I offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. If you do choose to hire me, I charge on the contingency fee basis. This means that if I don't obtain compensation for you, I don't charge any fees.

The following pages provide more information about the Social Security Disability claims process:

  • Initial SSD Applications: There is no reason not to contact a lawyer right away. I can give you an honest assessment of your case to help you avoid mistakes that can damage your claim.
  • SSD Hearings: If your initial application for disability benefits and request for reconsideration is denied, your next step is a hearing before an administrative law judge. It is important to have an attorney represent you at this hearing.
  • SSD Appeals Council: If the administrative law judge denies your claim at your hearing, you can appeal the decision to the Social Security Appeals Council.
  • SSD Federal Court Appeals: If the Social Security Appeals Council denies your request for benefits, I can appeal the decision in federal court.
  • SSD Special Topics: This page provides information about over-age-50 claims, compassionate allowances, continuing disability review (CDR) and benefits for widows and children.
  • Supplemental Security Income: If you have not worked long enough to qualify for Social Security Disability Income, you may be eligible for benefits from Supplemental Security Income.
