Why a lawyer should help you fill out your SSD application

While it is true that you do not need a lawyer’s help when applying for Social Security Disability benefits, working with a lawyer comes with numerous benefits.

Perhaps most importantly, having an experienced attorney help you with your SSD application greatly improves your chances of success the first time you apply. 

In case you didn’t already know, it has been estimated that a whopping 70 percent of disability applications are initially denied.

Although many of these individuals end up getting the benefits that they need and deserve after getting an attorney involved, this requires taking part in the long and intimidating appeals process.

Why not increase your chances of success the first time around?

There are many disability lawyers in Michigan who only assist SSD applicants whose claims have already been denied. We, on the other hand, step in to help right away because we know how important it is for our clients to get benefits as soon as they possibly can.

Working with our firm at the beginning of the SSD application process can make sure that:

  • Your disability is characterized properly in order to fit the SSA list of impairments by using more clinical or formal language that government evaluators appreciate.
  • Issues with your application are spotted and addressed before they cause your benefits to be denied.
  • All of the necessary paperwork is filled out completely and accurately, which can prevent your application from being returned to you.

The best part is, we can help you apply for benefits based on telephone calls, if it is not possible for you to come to our metro Detroit area office. Keep reading for more information on why it is wise to have a lawyer help you with your SSD application.
