Why Hire An SSD Attorney?

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has very specific rules about what does and does not qualify as a disability for their programs. If the wording on your application isn’t right or the evidence you submit for evaluation is not sufficient or properly presented, your claim could be denied.

To qualify for benefits, your disability must be severe and prevent you from doing any job and earning an income. Even if you clearly cannot go back to your old job, your claim can be denied if Social Security thinks that there’s another job out there that you can do.

Social Security’s own studies from 2001 to 2010 show that there is a steadily increasing backlog of cases that are still waiting on decisions. It can take years to get through that process. By working with an attorney who understands the SSA, you can ensure that you are giving the SSA everything it needs to easily approve your claim from the start.
