Do You Need Help With Social Security Disability?

Social security disability benefits are meant to help people who are unable to work due to a long-term disability. Unfortunately, proving your disability and eligibility for assistance can be complicated. It is best to contact a skilled Fairfax social security disability lawyer to help you with this process.

Different Types of Social Security Disability Claims

There are several options for disabled people to receive assistance from the Social Security Administration. Individuals who have worked paid into the Social Security system may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). These claims are often denied if not done properly.

There is also a federal income supplement program called SSI which is based on financial need and not on whether the person has worked or not. There are several other programs for disabled widows and widowers as well as disabled adult children.

How do you apply for disability benefits?

Most types of disability (Social Security, veterans, work-provided) benefits start with a typical application process. You will need to provide information about yourself, your earnings, and your medical condition that keeps you from working. Getting the information correct on your application can prevent any unnecessary delays and appeals.

What conditions automatically qualify you for disability?

To receive disability benefits, you will need to prove that your diagnosed medical condition prevents you from working and earning a living. In that sense, no condition "automatically" qualifies you for benefits. You will need to provide supporting evidence that goes beyond a doctor's diagnosis.

How much does disability pay per month?

The average Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiary receives more than $1,200 a month. However, if you receive any other disability benefits, such as veterans' disability benefits, you may receive less. Your ability to do any part-time work will also affect how much you receive, as will the amount you earned before you became unable to work.

How long does it take to get disability benefits?

Many people are rejected the first time they apply for disability benefits, meaning they have to go through the appeals process. This process can take months or more than a year for many people. However, everyone's case is unique, and you should speak with an attorney if you have more questions about the process.

What sort of issues can I seek legal help with?

Specialized legal help is available for most legal issues. Each case is unique; seeking legal help is a smart first step toward understanding your legal situation and seeking the best path toward resolution for your case. An experienced lawyer understands the local laws surrounding your case and what your best legal options might be. More importantly, there are certain situations and circumstances - such as being charged with a crime - where you should always seek experienced legal help.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Social Security Disability Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
