When Do You Need An Attorney?
The Social Security Disability application and appeals process is more than filling out an application and getting a check. The Social Security Administration (SSA) must decide if you are unable to work due to a medically determinable physical or mental impairment under the listing of impairments manual or other sources, and your medical record must support your claim.
There are also timing considerations. For example, the claims process actually begins before you file your completed initial application. The SSA considers your first contact with the agency as your true application date. Securing a protective filing status through written notice can increase the amount of back pay you may be entitled to receive.
We take a proactive approach by providing consultative advice and representation in matters involving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI):
- Consultation: We consult with clients on their initial application. We can help make sure you are taking the steps you need to establish your claim, maximize the benefits to which you may be entitled and increase your chance of approval at the initial stage.
- Representation: We begin representing you after the SSA rejects your claim for benefits. Do not become discouraged if your claim has been denied — most are initially. You have several opportunities to appeal, and we know how to build an effective argument.
