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 Virginia Beach 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.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It's important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice's billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

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.
