When Is it Time to Hire a PA Social Security Disability Attorney?
Posted D. Joseph Chapman on Mar 30, 2014 in Social Security Disability
You finally had all your paperwork together and all your documents mailed in to the nearest Harrisburg SSD office. You hit the submit button and waited, confident that you had everything you needed to get Social Security Disability. Instead, you’ve been inundated with letter after letter requesting more information—only to be denied in the end. What now?
If you’re feeling confused, overwhelmed or frustrated by the Social Security Disability process, you’re not alone. Simply getting the information together to submit an application is time-consuming. The amount of detailed documentation required can make even the most organized person feel a little overwhelmed.
You don’t have to do it all on your own. The SSD agency recognizes that this process can be overwhelming and allows third parties to complete the application on behalf of the disabled person. While you can rely on a family member or friend to help you complete the application, you may want to consult with an experienced Pennsylvania Social Security lawyer. More than half of all applications are initially denied, so if you will need to hire an attorney later anyway to appeal a decision, you might as well start looking now.
Schmidt Kramer offers a free consultation to all potential clients. If you’re unsure whether or not you want a lawyer, feel free to set up an appointment to discuss your situation and determine your next step. You may want to talk to a lawyer if you’re struggling with any of the following aspects of an application:
- Overwhelmed by the amount of required documentation
- Can’t seem to find all the required information
- Confused with which category to place your illness
- Already been denied benefits
- Uncertain that you can do it on your own
