If you are currently seeking Social Security benefits, or have already been denied Social Security benefits, you may consider consulting a Social Security Disability attorney for a free consultation.
While the Social Security administration can be a safety net providing various benefits, the process of obtaining such benefits can be overwhelming, not to mention the red tape involved.
Under the Social Security law, the types of benefits you may be eligible for include: Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Widow/Widower’s Disability Benefits, Adult Disabled Child and Blind.
You should apply for all the benefits you may be entitled to. An experienced attorney will have no problem giving you a free evaluation for your case. A lawyer may also assist you in preparing your claim so that you and your family receive all the benefits you’re entitled to.
It’s a Social Security attorney’s job to help you win your disability claim. A disability attorney knows the law and will help carry out tasks that might be difficult for you to do on your own. He/she will follow the case as it progresses and prepare your appeal for a hearing in front of an administrative law judge if that is necessary.
The Social Security attorney should secure copies of all medical records on your disability and make sure the records are sent to the Social Security administration. If further information is requested by Social Security, of if they need you to schedule a medical exam, your Social Security attorney will assist by communicating with the disability examiner and marking sure you’re aware and ready for any appointments.
A disability claim can be a long, drawn-out process for anybody – let alone those who are disabled. With a good Social Security attorney, helping to navigate the rules, regulations and deadlines involved with the process can make a big difference between winning and losing your claim. Not to mention the support you’ll have along the way.
If you’re not sure you can afford a lawyer, you may want to consider all the benefits of successfully receiving Social Security disability – a back-pay check for a large amount, monthly payments, medical coverage and additional help from medical professionals to improve your condition. The benefits definitely outweigh what an experienced Social Security attorney charges. It just may be the best investment you can make.
