Anne Arundel County Social Security Lawyer
Meeting your financial obligations can be challenging, even in the best of times. But when you can’t work because of a physical or mental condition, paying your bills becomes impossible. But there is hope. An Anne Arundel County Social Security lawyer can help by explaining the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) disability benefit program to you. You can receive financial assistance from the federal government – in the form of monthly checks – if you qualify. But attempting to file the application by yourself can be a mistake. If you’ve never been through the process before, it can seem baffling and convoluted. By using a lawyer for your claim, you may save yourself stress and heartache.
What a Anne Arundel County Social Security attorney can do
You stand a good chance of having your claim rejected the first time you submit it. This happens to approximately 70% of Social Security Disability applicants. But if you have an Anne Arundel County Social Security attorney, you can decrease you chances of early rejection. Your attorney can also file an appeal (formally known as a “request for reconsideration”) in the event you are denied benefits. Finally, it helps to have an attorney with you during your disability hearing. You are unlikely to convince an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) of the merits of your case by yourself. Attorneys, however, have more experience in this area of the law. The SSA tells applicants that although Anne Arundel County Social Security lawyers don’t have to help with applications, legal representation increases your odds of claim approval. There are many things a qualified attorney can do to this end, including properly completing forms, collecting needed documentation, and preparing appeals. Qualifying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is usually based on work history, FICA taxes, and payroll deductions. But qualifying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is based on income in the event you never worked. If you’re unsure of which program is right for you, visit with Anne Arundel County Social Security attorneys.
