What Is
Social Security Disability?

Attorneys specializing in Social Security disability law know how to navigate the ever-changing rules, regulations, and policies for two federal aid programs:

  • Social Security disability insurance (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Because the Social Security Administration (SSA) administers both programs, the agency uses the same medical standards to evaluate all claims. However, the SSA’s internal definition of “disabled” is not at all what most people might think. In other words, it differs from the definition the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) uses to evaluate veterans’ claims. Finally, know that your doctor saying you’re disabled does not mean that the SSA will automatically grant you benefits.

That’s why you should always consult an attorney who specializes in Social Security disability law before you apply for benefits.

Social Security Disability Lawyers Make You Almost 3x More Likely to Get Monthly Benefits

Attorneys who specialize in Social Security disability law provide the following services to all eligible claimants on contingency:

  • Answer all your claim questions and provide free, confidential legal advice, either by phone or in person
  • Help you better understand your chances of benefit approval, how long you’ll wait until your first payment, etc.
  • Review your application for mistakes and make any required corrections prior to submitting your claim paperwork to the SSA
  • Help gather (and even pay for) copies of medical records and other convincing evidence to support your disability case
  • File your initial disability application, communicate with the SSA on your behalf and provide regular updates on your claim
  • Potentially speed up your claim review and maximize your lump-sum backpay as well as your monthly benefit amounts
  • Explain why the SSA denied your claim the first time (if applicable) and how to potentially win benefits on appeal
  • File your appeal and even appear in court on your behalf if the SSA denies your initial disability claim

Finally, recent government reports show that claimants with legal representation are nearly 3x more likely to secure disability benefits. An attorney who specializes in Social Security disability law charges $0 up front to file your benefits application. If the SSA doesn’t award you benefits, you owe $0 for legal representation. But if you do win, you’ll only pay a small, one-time fee.
