You can apply for Social Security Disability on your own. But applying for disability benefits is a little like playing a game where your early moves can shape whether you win in the end.
This is probably a game you’re not familiar with, but the Empower Disability lawyers have gone through this process thousands of times. Having a disability lawyer for your claim can ensure your application is done right—and lift the burden of getting it done yourself.
Another reason to have a lawyer is that most people are denied disability benefits. Now you need to start an appeal. And the process gets much more complicated.
Appealing can even include going in front of a disability judge to explain, personally, how your health problems make it impossible to work.
If you have a lawyer representing you there, that can improve your chances of winning life-changing disability benefits in the end. And you pay no attorney fee until you win.
