Does Representation Help?
Posted in: Disability Lawyer on August 17th, 2011

If you are applying for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income, you are likely familiar with the fact that the process can be time consuming and confusing. Particularly if the individual applying has a disability that is mental, dealing with the paperwork and the bureaucracy inherent with applying for disability benefits can be very difficult and extremely emotionally taxing.

disability lawyerIt has been shown that nearly 90% of all applicants for either Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income use representation during the appeals part of the claims process.  Many who are either starting off on the application process or in the middle of it wonder if representation can help them get through the process.

The Short Answer Is Yes

In general, hiring a  professional disability lawyer will help you get through the process of claims much easier and faster than if you were tackling it alone.  In August of 2010, there was a report by the Office of Inspector General for the Social Security Administration that showed that many people who submit an initial disability application for Social Security Disability Insurance in particular benefit from using third party representation.

This does not mean that if you go at the process alone you have no chance of receiving benefits.  But if you have the resources and the willingness to hire representation, it will likely get you through the process at a much faster clip than you would otherwise.  It’s up to you – and how fast you’d like to receive your benefits!
