Applying for SSD?
Thinking of Going it Alone? Don’t!
Top 5 Reasons to Have a Lawyer’s Help
You can’t work any longer. Your doctor says so and writes a note. Will that be enough for you to receive Social Security Disability benefits?
You may indeed qualify for SSD benefits. Getting those benefits is another matter – and consulting an attorney can mean the difference between approval and denial.
Here are 5 top reasons why it helps to have an attorney
- Applicants pay no fee until/unless they win. The Social Security Administration pays the attorney from the applicant’s retroactive benefits. The fee is 25 percent of those benefits, up to $6,000.
- Social Security Disability cases are time-consuming and complex, involving medical records, eligibility, various requirements such as work and medical histories, and strict timetables and deadlines, plus hundreds of pages of regulations and sometimes conflicting court opinions interpreting those regulations. It can be confusing and overwhelming, and one mistake or missed deadline can seriously derail your case. Because of that, it’s best to have a lawyer looking out for you.
- The government will not protect your rights as a lawyer will.
- A lawyer helps at all levels of the process, from application, to any hearings, through appeals.
- An attorney will handle all the paperwork, collect the medical records, speak to the Social Security Administration on your behalf and prepare you for any hearings.
