You’ve worked hard and diligently for decades, but for whatever reason, you’re now disabled and no longer capable of working. Suddenly, you’re worried about bills, debts, keeping your home, and caring for your family. Speaking to an experienced disability attorney can ease your fears and anxieties. Depending on the specifics of your case, several options are available. A good disability lawyer can explain to you the details about applications, denials, hearings, and the appeals process for each of these options:
Each of these programs and plans differs significantly from the others. Some programs only provide benefits to those who are one hundred percent disabled. Under other programs, you may be eligible to receive benefits for partial disability. Be prepared; frequently, your first claim will be denied. Hiring an experienced disability attorney dramatically increases the probability that you will receive the benefits you deserve. A good disability lawyer will also work diligently to expedite the process, so that you can begin receiving benefits promptly.
Most people have limited savings and resources, so if you are applying to receive disability benefits, if you are not sure whether you qualify, or if you are uncertain which benefits program is appropriate for you, speak as quickly as possible to an experienced disability attorney to obtain the help and advice you need.
