It’s one of the most common questions: If you have earned Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and you are really disabled and unable to work, why would you ever need to hire a SSDI attorney to get the benefits you deserve?
Many disability applicants mistakenly believe they can complete their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) application and thirty days later the disability check will be in their mailbox or the disability check will be deposited in their checking account.
If you are disabled with a severe health condition and are not able to work for at least 12 continuous months you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI). SSDI benefits are a governmental disability program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for workers who are disabled and have earned enough work credits to be insured for benefits.
If you have applied for SSDI disability benefits and been denied you may be able to appeal your denial by filing a reconsideration. If you are denied a second time you can request a disability hearing before an administrative law judge. The Social Security Administration will send you notification for your disability hearing 20 to 30 days before your hearing date, but preparation for the hearing should begin months before you receive notice.
