Yes, you can apply for Social Security Disability benefits on your own. However, you should be aware that the vast majority of applications are denied. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has very specific requirements for what it wants to see in applications. There are many details that may seem minor that could lead to a denial if they are overlooked.
At Leticia A. Gonzalez, Attorneys at Law, we know what the Social Security Administration is looking for, because we have been handling these matters for more than 10 years on behalf of people in San Antonio and throughout Texas. For example, we know how to create applications that show that you meet the SSA’s definition of being disabled. This requires more than a doctor’s note saying you are not able to work because of an injury or illness.
We can help you determine whether you are eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or both. We can complete and submit the application in an efficient manner, and we always start with a free consultation.
Enlisting A Lawyer At The Very Beginning Can Save You Time
If you apply for Social Security Disability benefits on your own and you are denied, you may have to return to the starting line. You could lose a substantial amount of time, and all the while you are unable to work and earn a paycheck. The bottom line is that you need these benefits now. While getting benefits does take time, having us handle the application for you means that you will avoid unnecessary pitfalls, obstacles or redos. Our goal is to get you the benefits you need as quickly as possible so you can move on with your life.
Even the most diligently prepared application may be denied. Another benefit of having us prepare your application is that we prepare for denial. We lay the groundwork for requesting reconsideration and appealing the denied claim, so we can move seamlessly through the process. We will stand by your side through every phase of the process.
