Disability Benefits: Do You Qualify?

Establishing if you qualify for Social Security disability benefits can be difficult if you are not well versed with the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Blue Book as well as the technical requirements. A Social Security disability lawyer will know what is needed to prove your condition meets a Blue Book listing and help you understand the technical requirements you must meet.

How a Lawyer Can Help You Qualify For Benefits

Without the assistance of an attorney, you may neglect to add important pieces of evidence that can support your claims. These include things like medical testing results, doctor's notes, specific forms, etc. Forgetting these can result in a denied claim.

A disability attorney or advocate can help make sure that you don't miss critical evidence for your claim. Should your condition change, your lawyer can report the changes. If you are required to see an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ), your lawyer can help you prepare for the questions that may be asked as well as represent you in the hearing.

Disability Lawyer Costs

When working with a Social Security disability attorney, you will not need to pay for their assistance until after you are approved for benefits. Contingency fees, which is what disability lawyers operate on, allow for not upfront costs or fees so your lawyer will work hard to get you approved.
