When clients choose a Social Security Disability advocate to assist them with their SSDI claim or appeal, they are often surprised to find that they will be working with a team, rather than a single individual – as they typically might if they chose to use a SSDI lawyer instead.
When you understand why SSD advocates use a team approach, however, you’ll see that it not only makes sense but, in most cases, it provides a variety of advantages that you may not have with an attorney.
Social Security Disability Advocates vs. Lawyers
In a typical law firm, attorneys assist their clients with different types of cases. This could include personal injury law, criminal matters, business law, etc. They also delegate various elements of their cases to paralegals, legal assistants and others, who perform some aspects of your casework behind the scenes.
When you work with an SSDI advocate, each member of the team specializes in a specific aspect of the process. So, during any given phase of your case, you will work with a case manager who has extensive knowledge and expertise in that part of the claim.
Social Security Disability Advocates Are Highly Specialized
SSDI claims are highly complex in nature – which is why so few law firms are dedicated exclusively to this specialization.
However, advocates break this specialization down even further, with each member of the team contributing expertise in a single phase of the process. The team works together, seamlessly delivering a level of service that you might not otherwise receive.
How the SSDI Advocate Team Approach Benefits You
Having someone on your side, fighting for your rights and the benefits you deserve, makes you realize you’re not alone. The team approach provides support and encouragement to help get you through the process. The increased level of communication and assistance ensures that you get the answers you need.
More importantly, working with a Social Security Disability advocate team ensures that SSA gets the information they need in the format they require. Attempting to file the paperwork yourself or working with a less experienced legal professional could increase your chance for a denial of your claim or rejection of your request for appeal.
