WHY DO I NEED AN ATTORNEY TO APPLY FOR BENEFITS?
You are not required to work with an attorney when applying for Social Security Disability. However, the process is complicated and time-consuming. You will need to gather many pieces of documentation, including your medical records, employment history and bank statements documenting your monthly income.
It can be tough to gather all of this information on your own, particularly when you may be working part-time or are struggling with physical limitations caused by your disability. If you miss a crucial piece of information, your application could be denied.
However, having an experienced attorney at your side can help ensure you have all of the documentation you need. A lawyer will know how to build a strong case for why you deserve benefits.
