SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance)
You've paid a portion of your paycheck to social security for as long as you can remember. You trusted that that money would be there for you when you needed it. But now that you're disabled and unable to return to work, the social security you counted on isn't coming though. What can you do?
Why Do I Need a Lawyer?
Most people who apply for early social security benefits are turned down a minimum of two times, even when represented by a qualified social security lawyer. If you're injured, unwell and struggling to get the social security disability benefits you desperately need, you don’t need double talk. You need a quick solution.
An Administrative Law Judge will hear your claim before you can receive your disability benefits. It is strongly recommended you have an attorney by your side at this stage. Of course, there is no guarantee that your benefits will be awarded, but retaining an experienced social security lawyer can guarantee your case will be appropriately developed for the hearing.
Since the majority of claimants have no idea how to go about advocating for themselves, preparing their case for the hearing, gathering the necessary records or even understand the maze of social security disability rules and regulations, your attorney can be an invaluable help in winning your case. Additionally, the “date of onset,” or the date when your disability payments begin, can be affected by the length of time with which you have suffered from your disability.
A lawyer familiar with Social Security disability claims understands this, and knows that convincing the courts to accept the earliest date of your symptoms as the beginning of your disability may mean more ‘back pay’ for you. Kalfus and Nachman can help to answer your Social Security Disability questions.
Overall, while an attorney is not a prerequisite, it is extremely unwise and may result in losing your benefits altogether.
