About Tamara

Learn Tamara’s areas of practice.

If you are unable to work due to physical condition, a mental condition, or a combination of the two, then you are probably eligible to be paid a monthly disability benefit by the federal government. During the years that you worked, you probably noticed that your employers took out various forms of taxes from your paychecks. One of these taxes was paid to the Social Security Administration (SSA) to fund not only your future retirement benefits but also a disability program. This disability program covers you if you become disabled before reaching retirement age.

It does not matter what is causing your inability to work. It could be a disease, an injury, or something you were born with. Most often it is a variety of factors that combine to result in someone being unable to work. Age, for example, is often a major factor in a disability case. A disease or injury that does not disable someone who is 25 years old might disable someone who is 55 years old.

If you receive disability benefits and you have a minor child or children they will each receive a monthly benefit as well. Furthermore, after (2) years of receiving disability benefits you will automatically become eligible for Medicare.

You can receive disability benefits at the same time, and in addition to, disability benefits from the following sources: Veterans Administration, state workers’ compensation plans, and private insurance companies (LTD benefits). Benefits from some programs or plans, however, may be reduced in amount based on the concurrent receipt of disability benefits from the SSA. It is important for Veterans to note that there is NO reduction in your service connected disability benefits.

Attorney Schweinsburg
I will be eternally grateful for attorney Schweinsburg’s handling of my brother’s disability case. Her persistence, and dedication were beyond our expectations. In addition to her excellent legal skills attorney Schweinsburg provided emotional support that was key to helping my brother properly express himself under circumstances that he normally would have been unable to accomplish because of his disability. Attorney Schweinsburg possesses the rare ability to be extremely legally competent while being equally skilled at dealing with the challenges that come with mental illnesses. I would absolutely recommend attorney Schweinsburg to anyone in need of a disability lawyer, and I would absolutely hire her again for any legal assistance in the future. Sincerely, Reva

I hired Tamara Schweisnberg by way of a friend, I needed a lawyer that would go to bat for me and hold my hand through the entire process. Being ill and having to go through such a long process is not easy. Tamara was always in communication with me as well as always called me and updated me about my case. Tamara made this long process go very smoothly and eased my anxiety as well as my mind. My case was found fully favorable and I can now move on with somewhat of a life. If you are looking for the best SSD Attorney Ms. Schweinsberg is your person. I will forever be grateful for her professionalism and her firm for the all they did for me. I can't say enough about her or her staff. They truly stand up to what they fight for. I highly recommend them to anyone in or out of the area.
