We continue to be open and working during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Disability clients have significant existing health barriers that present real challenges at this time. And there are many new questions about how the COVID-19 Pandemic may force those with underlying health issues toward a disability filing. We are happy to discuss those issues.

However, we are committed to handling your claims and questions in the safest manner possible. At this time we are conducting work with our clients, and appearing before the courts by phone or video conference call, rather than in-person appointments.

If you have questions about a disability matter, please call. We can discuss by phone or set a video appointment.

Providing Personal Attention.
Finding Unique Solutions.

Every situation is unique. At my firm, I provide individualized attention and find solutions to your specific issues.

Knowledge And Experience

One problem many people have with law firms that handle Social Security Disability claims is that they don’t provide adequate attention to or explanation of the process, the rules and the politics now involved in every decision. At the Law Office of Annette Rutkowski LLC, that won’t happen to you.

I am attorney Annette Rutkowski and, as your lawyer, I will take the time to understand your situation and the issues that are unique to your case. I will tell you what the rules are and how they will apply, and what to expect along the course of your disability proceeding. I want to meet with you personally and advise you on the evidence required and how your situation will be considered by adjudicators.

Successfully Represented Thousands Of Social Security Disability Claims

With offices in Indianapolis, Lafayette and Franklin, Indiana, I represent clients located throughout central, western and southern Indiana. I assist individuals and family members of individuals with:

Social Security Disability

I help people apply for both Social Security Disability income and Supplemental Security Income claims. From filing the initial application to appealing a denied claim, I handle all stages of the process.

Long-Term Disability

I assist disabled workers obtain long-term disability when benefits of their employer-sponsored benefit plans have run out. I also help individuals with the appeals process for denied LTD claims.

Assistance For Young Adults With Disabilities

I assist parents with child disability claims as well as those dealing with age 18 requalification to adult standards to maintain other state benefits. When you have a child who may have autism, severe learning disabilities, or mental or physical impairments that may not allow them to ever work and be self-supporting, the transitions should be planned for future needs.

Adult Guardianships

I can also help caregivers or parents with physical or mental disabilities establish a guardianship in order for the parent to make financial, health care and other important decision on behalf of a disabled adult, or child after he or she turns 18.

Continuing Disability Reviews

The law requires a continuous case review for individuals receiving Social Security Disability benefits in order to determine if their condition still prevents them from working. I offer guidance for individuals who are facing a disability review and other aspects of the process.

Disability cases are won by careful preparation and the application of the law based upon the specific facts of your case. I have successfully represented thousands of Social Security Disability claims using this approach.
