Disability benefits are intended to help people who cannot work due to serious health problems. But it is not always easy to ask for this help without help.
INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA, USA, Sept. 13, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Social Security disability benefits were created to spare people financial ruin when they are forced to stop working – through no fault of their own. their part – due to serious health problems.
But a system designed to weed out undeserving applicants makes getting benefits a lot of work in and of itself.
Faced with this system, people ask themselves: “Do I need a representative for Social Security Disability?
You don’t have to have a representative, but government statistics have found that people are almost three times more likely to be approved for benefits after a hearing if they have a lawyer. (Government Accountability Office: https://www.gao.gov/products/gao-18-37)
Filing a disability claim involves filling out lengthy forms, collecting medical records, and possibly arguing for benefits in front of a judge at a hearing.
For many years in a row, Social Security has denied a large majority of people applying for benefits. (Social Security Disability Insurance Annual Report: https://www.ssa.gov/policy/docs/statcomps/di_asr/2020/di_asr20.pdf)
