What to Expect If You Schedule a Meeting With a Social Security Disability Lawyer
Posted Jessica L. Kurtz on Nov 28, 2014 in Social Security Disability
You’ve been through many things in your life, but never this. You’ve never before faced a situation where your medical condition is not only keeping you out of work now, but is also expected to keep you out of work forever. You are facing a permanent disability, and it can be frightening and overwhelming. As you navigate your new reality, it can be scary to think not only of your prognosis, but also of what the rest of your life will be like. How will you afford to put food on the table or a roof over your head? How will you afford to live?
Don’t Let These Questions Overwhelm You
Instead, schedule a meeting with an experienced Social Security disability lawyer. Your lawyer cannot fix your medical condition, but he or she may be able to help you get Social Security disability benefits if you qualify. When you meet with a lawyer, you can expect:
- Honesty. Your lawyer will let you know whether you have a Social Security disability case that should be pursued.
- Questions. Your lawyer is going to ask you many different questions. It may be helpful to have your most recent tax return and a copy of your medical records with you so that you can answer those questions.
- A plan of action. If your lawyer believes you have a Social Security disability claim, he or she will discuss your next steps with you.
