Your Attorney and the Social Security Disability Process
The economy has changed and the Social Security Disability (SSD) system has changed as well. Twenty years ago, only those who found it difficult to manage their SSD applications used Cincinnati Social Security Disability lawyers. Now, given the large number of claims that are turned down, an attorney makes a great difference in whether you receive benefits.
SSD awards have decreased almost across the board over the last 15 years. While the number of applications has more than doubled, the number of applications that are approved has fallen by about one-third. A Cincinnati Social Security Disability law firm can help your case stand out from the crowd.
How an Attorney Can Help
A Cincinnati Social Security Disability lawyer may be able to expedite your application. At the very least, you know that your paperwork will be done correctly and not rejected for technical reasons.
After you submit your application and it is reviewed, it is likely to be rejected at least once and probably twice. However, with each denial, your Cincinnati Social Security Disability lawyer gleans valuable information to use at your appeals hearing. The delay also gives your attorney time to fine-tune your case and make sure that you have the most up-to-date information available to support your claim.
Your Cincinnati Social Security Disability lawyer advocates for you at the appeals hearing. You are required to say very little. An experienced attorney knows the most effective way to present your case, maximizing your chances of securing fair compensation.
