How to Get Free Expert Claim Help By Phone
Planning to apply for disability benefits or need help with your appeal? Then we suggest talking to an attorney for free about your claim. That’s because you’re nearly 3x more likely to get approved for benefits if a lawyer files your paperwork. Plus, a local attorney can answer all your personal Social Security disability FAQs by phone. These lawyers charge $0 for helping you until after you win benefits. And if you do win, you’ll only pay one small fee.
Those who qualify for legal assistance usually get at least $13,000 in back pay plus monthly benefits. People who apply on their own without expert help usually wait 18-24 months and file multiple appeals in court.
