Do I Need an Attorney to Make a Disability Claim?
If your initial disability claim was denied, don’t give up. An attorney can bring an appeal on your behalf and present evidence to an administrative law judge. It is not uncommon for first-time Social Security disability claims to be denied. The process is complex and many people who are unfamiliar with the rules and procedures make mistakes when completing paperwork.
If you haven’t started the disability application process, you should hire a lawyer before you begin; an attorney can help you avoid pitfalls that could lead to claim denial.
Whether you’re trying to appeal a denied claim or start a new disability claim, the experienced attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can help make the process much easier and more successful.
What is an SSI Claim?
SSI stands for Supplemental Security Income, and it is a need-based program that supports people ages 65 and up with disabling conditions. Some people qualify for both SSI benefits and Social Security disability benefits. Eligibility for SSI benefits is determined by your total assets. In most cases, individuals with less than $2,000 in assets and married couples with less than $3,000 in assets can qualify for SSI.
If you believe you might qualify for SSI benefits, a Southfield disability attorney can review your financial records to determine your eligibility.
Social Security Disability Appeals
Social Security disability claims can be denied for a number of reasons. If your claim was rejected because of mistakes in the paperwork you filed, a Morgan & Morgan attorney can correct the errors and help you submit your claim for reconsideration.
If your claim was denied for some other reason, your attorney can review your case to determine if your claim was wrongly declined. If it was, your attorney can gather supporting evidence, including statements from your doctor about your disabling condition, and present the new evidence to a new Social Security reviewer or an administrative judge.
The appellate process can be complex, but it’s important to remember that you shouldn’t give up just because your initial claim was rejected. Morgan & Morgan has helped clients secure Social Security disability benefits after their initial claim was declined.
Can I Afford an Attorney?
Yes. In fact, when you hire a Morgan & Morgan attorney, you don’t pay anything out of pocket and nothing at all if we don’t win your case. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we don’t get paid unless you do.
