Why Should You Hire a Disability / Social Security Attorney To Help With Your Claim?
The main benefit of hiring an attorney to help with your disability or SS claim is that it will dramatically increase your chances of being approved. Statistics show that while some without legal representation can have their application approved on the first try, (over 70% are denied) more often than not those without legal help don’t get approved.
Statistics show that Social Security is more likely to approve someone who’s being represented by legal counsel.
A recent reader survey on the website Nolo shows that people who hire attorneys to help them with their SS Benefits Claims were twice as likely to get approved vs. those without legal representation.
“Our survey showed that hiring a disability lawyer makes a big difference in the outcome of SSDI and SSI claims. About a third of our readers (33%) had the help of an attorney at some point in the process of applying for benefits and pursuing an appeal (if they went that far). Of those readers with legal representation, 60% were ultimately approved for benefits, compared to 34% of those who didn’t have a lawyer’s help. That means that having a lawyer nearly doubled applicants’ chances of getting benefits. (A government report from 2017 backs up this data; the report found that disability applicants who used representatives were allowed benefits 2.9 times as often as those without.)”
From the initial application to possible hearings our attorneys understand how to present a case that will have favorable results for you.
The time to call an attorney is before you apply. If you wait until you have submitted your application and are waiting for a response there is rarely anything that an attorney can do to help at that point.
