Do SSI Lawyers Really Help With Your Disability Claim?

If you find yourself in need of assistance for a social security disability case, it is important to get help from an expert.

Many people make the error of representing themselves. While you may know your rights, it is always advantageous to reach out to one, or several social security disability law firms to increase your overall chance of success.

Follow the tips below to learn more about the importance of hiring the right SSI lawyer for your situation.

SSI Lawyers Increase Your Chance of Success

When you need a payout for your social security disability case, the last thing you want to deal with is personal doubt and uncertainty at each step of your claim. Hiring a competent disability lawyer will help you wipe away a lot of this doubt since you will have professional advocates on the case for you.

A great team of SSI advocates will work to clarify any questions the SSA has about your medical condition, employment status, medication and treatment, and any other concerns that arise. They will be there every step of the way working on your behalf to convince the Social Security Administration (SSA) that your claim is appropriate and should be granted.

A Great Team of SSI Lawyers Can Speak For Your and Explain the Details of Your Case

Knowing the law is one thing, but you also need a professional that can articulate it on your behalf.

When you start shopping around for various SSI lawyers, gauge how each one of them explains your situation to you. You want a lawyer that will explain everything about your claim, and the work they will do for you clearly, and also answers all your questions.

Remember, your lawyer will argue on your behalf that your condition meets the standards of a disability as defined by the SSA. They will further prove that your state hinders your ability to work and earn a living. It is vital that you can communicate with your lawyer if you ever expect them to be able to convey your situation accurately and compellingly for you.

SSI Attorneys Ease the Application Process

With social security disability cases, you are always subject to lulls in claim turnaround time. One of the best things you can do to get your claim approved as fast as possible is to retain a good SSI lawyer. Hiring a lawyer improves your chance of getting accepted in the first wave of the application process – which can help you get your claim approved in months rather than fighting for years over why it was not accepted in the first place.

You will also get another set of eyes on your initial disability application.

You Will Get Paid What You Deserve

In most cases, you can expect your social security lawyer to take up to 25% of your payout (up to $6k). This rate is the maximum rate an SSI lawyer can charge to assist you as an advocate. But there are some ways that firms can slip other fees by you. Even though it seems like everyone charges the same thing, you can still find there is a difference at the end of the day (in your bank account) if you don’t shop around.

Do SSI Lawyers Really Help You with Your Disability Claim?

Did you know that hiring an SSI Lawyer to help with your appeal can increase your chances of being approved by double?

How? Why? Does it matter that much to retain a great SSI lawyer? 

Reasons to Hire an SSI Lawyer

The process of applying for SSI can take anywhere from one month to three years (Initial decision through any appeals if needed). Having someone to help you at any point during the process will make it less stressful and ensure you meet deadlines and guidelines.  Missed deadlines are one of the big reasons disability claims end up getting denied in the first place.

In addition to helping you to meet all deadlines, even the ones you did not know existed, SSI Lawyers should be able to access medical evidence, employment records, and all the other parts of your life that go into making an airtight case for the benefits you rate.  The goal is always to present the best case that demonstrates you meet the Social Security Administration’s official disability definition.

Your attorney will also spend time preparing you for questions you may come to face when in an appeals hearing, such as:

  • Describe your symptoms?
  • Are you currently seeing a physician for your disability?
  • When were you unable to continue work?
  • Are you still able to take care of personal hygiene?
  • How long can you be physically active before needing to rest?

This is a very brief overview; for a more in-depth discussion on SSI Appeals, and the steps necessary to win them.

Cost of a Disability Lawyer

There are little to no out of pocket fees to hire SSI lawyers! Disability lawyer fees are paid out of your back pay for your benefits and are limited to 25% (up to $6000). You will be asked to sign a contingency fee agreement stating that they will only get paid if you receive disability benefits.   Any out of pocket fees you pay will be from medical record requests, any copies, and sometimes postage. Be sure to ask up front, what out-of-pocket fees you may have and if you need to pay them before or after they close your case.
