If you are looking to apply for Social Security Disability benefits or appeal a decision made for your case, then you may benefit from a disability attorney. These attorneys can help you navigate the system, apply for benefits, and appeal your case if you've been denied.
Navigate The System
One of the most challenging parts of applying for Social Security Disability benefits is the bureaucracy that makes the system hard to navigate without a lot of research into what paperwork you need to file, when you need to file it, and who you need to speak to. Plus, many people find they have a long wait before they even get their initial decision. Disability attorneys are familiar with the system and can help you navigate the Social Security system with ease. They won't need to take very much time to figure out what needs to be done for your case, which can help make the entire process go much quicker than if you went alone.
Apply For Benefits
Not only can disability attorneys help you navigate the system just in terms of meeting the right people and having all the paperwork filled out, but they can also help you apply for benefits and lower the chances of a denial. You can take advantage of their advanced and thorough knowledge of the Social Security system and administration and present your case in a more iron-clad manner. They can help you present all the right paperwork and information to the Social Security administration so that there is significantly less doubt over the severity of your condition then there would be if you had to apply alone.
Appeals For Benefits
Finally, one of the best benefits of using a disability attorney to file for benefits under Social Security is that they can help you file an appeal. They can submit and resubmit documentation proving your disability beyond what was shown in the initial claim. Plus, they can also streamline the process of attending the hearing for Social Security Disability benefits, as they are more familiar with the legal system and can use that knowledge to your favor. They can push the timeline of the hearing closer or even eschew the hearing entirely by requesting that the judge make a decision "on-the-record."
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be incredibly stressful and overwhelming, especially if your disability is difficult to prove or observe. A disability attorney can walk you through the process of applying for benefits or appealing a decision, and present your case to the Social Security Administration. They can help you win your case, and get the benefits you need.Share
