The month of February is a time to raise awareness of several debilitating conditions many Americans face every day.

The American Heart Association has named February American Heart Month, in the hopes of raising awareness of how more than 700,000 Americans suffer heart attacks and another 600,000 are afflicted with Heart Disease each year.

Tuesday was World Cancer Day as well, which is an opportunity to increase the public’s knowledge about all types of the disease.

The attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin highlight just how crucial and important Social Security Disability benefits can be to a person who is suffering from a debilitating disease. This month also serves as a stark reminder of how difficult getting disability benefits can be.

Social Security Administration estimates show that as many as 60 percent of initial disability claims are denied. Even if a claim is approved, the process to do so could take months, or even years, to complete.

That’s why the team of Social Security Disability Attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin say it is so important for an individual seeking disability benefits to have an experienced and reputable attorney by their side throughout the process.
