Do I need a social security disability lawyer
or an advocate?

A Social Security Disability lawyer can assist you in every aspect of your claim. But did you know that an advocate can also assist you with your claim in the same way?

Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, or SSDI, is a long, arduous process that has many potential pitfalls along the way. If the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your initial claim, the appeals process can drag on interminably.

Becoming disabled can be overwhelming. In addition to the pain you suffer from your disability, you experience overwhelming worry and fear about paying the bills and caring for your family. That’s why you need experience, dedication and persistence on your side, and someone to fight for the benefits you deserve.

A disability claim lawyer can provide that for you – but did you know that an SSDI advocate can also provide all the help you need?

How Will a Social Security Disability Attorney Help You?

An SSD lawyer can handle any aspect of the claims process, from preparing your initial claim to appealing a denial.

The primary benefit of having a disability claim attorney on your side is that he or she understands the process. Experienced SSDI lawyers know how to document your case fully and correctly, to provide the best chance of winning an approval.

A lawyer can direct you to doctors and medical practitioners who understand the SSDI claims process as well and understand how to prepare their reporting in accordance with the SSA requirements.

Finally, your attorney will be by your side throughout the process, answering your questions and providing you with updates. They will fight to get you every dollar of the benefits you deserve.

How Will a Social Security Disability Advocate Help You?

A disability claim advocate will handle every aspect of the SSDI claims process, from the initial application through the full appeals process, if necessary.

An SSD advocate is essentially a team of professionals – which may include attorneys, paralegals, claims experts and case managers – who know the SSA processes and procedures inside out.

Every benefit that an attorney can provide, an SSDI advocate can provide – and then some. From properly documenting your claim to getting you into the hands of the right doctors, your advocate will be there for you. They will complete and submit the necessary documentation, represent you at your SSA hearings, provide answers and updates and fight to get you every dollar you deserve for your disability.

Should You Select a Disability Claim Advocate or a Lawyer?

Ultimately, that decision is up to you. However, when you consider the many advantages and benefits that an advocate can provide, it is definitely worth your time to explore this possibility.
