How a Disability Advocate or Attorney Can Help

When it comes to applying for Social Security disability benefits, having a Social Security attorney or advocate on your side can be crucial. Both advocates and attorneys handle disability benefit claims on a contingency bases, meaning they only get paid if you’re awarded benefits and backpay. They do not take money from your monthly payments. Having a good understanding of what evidence is needed to support your claim is important to get approved. Don’t risk a costly denial.
