How Social Security Advocates and Lawyers can Help You
Seeking the guidance of professionals like Social Security disability advocates and lawyers are helpful, and often necessary, during the difficult and sometimes frustrating process of applying for disability benefits.
When applying for disability benefits, it’s important to understand:
- The different types of disability insurance available;
- Social Security’s disability requirements;
- How to apply;
- What information you will need when applying for disability; and
- How to appeal if your initial disability application is denied.
To address these questions you may need the help of a disability expert. Social Security disability advocates and lawyers are well-versed in the Social Security Administration’s application and appeals process. Professional representation is the best solution for getting your benefits approved.
Why Use a Social Security Advocate or Lawyer to Represent You
The expertise of a Social Security advocate or lawyer can ensure that your application is accurate, complete, and on time, which greatly increases your chances of being approved for disability benefits.
When applying on your own you risk providing insufficient information, as well as losing your appeal.
If you are denied at the initial application level, the appeals process may take months, or even years. Social Security advocates or lawyers will work with you to ensure your disability claim is approved as quickly as possible.
Professional Representation Gives You the Best Chance for Success
Approximately 63 percent of initial disability applications are denied by the Social Security Administration. Therefore, Social Security advocates or lawyers are not only important for the initial application, but also in the appeals process where you have the best chance for getting approved.
Having a Social Security advocate or lawyer work for you during your disability appeal, when an Administrative Law Judge may hear your case, is critical, and can make the difference in getting approved for monthly benefits.
