Why Do You Need a Lawyer to Help With Your SSD Benefits Application?

For your entire working life, you’ve paid into the Social Security Administration (SSA) via payroll deductions. For most people, those deductions are paid back when they retire. But for others, that money is needed sooner due to illnesses or injuries that prevent them from being able to work.

If you can’t work because of a disability, getting approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits may be the most important thing you can do. Although the benefits won’t fully replace your lost income, they can help you keep up with your living expenses and provide for your family.

Unfortunately, getting approved for benefits is often a long and difficult process—especially if you don’t have a lawyer on your side. That’s because the burden of proof falls on the applicant, and the SSA has strict standards when it comes to approving claims and appeals. Even minor mistakes are often enough for the SSA to issue denials, and it can take months for applicants to hear back or begin the appeals process.

Having an experienced Nashville Social Security Disability lawyer on your side from day one can make the process much simpler. In addition to taking the stress of the application or appeal off your shoulders, you’ll also get peace of mind knowing that your paperwork will be complete, free of errors, and submitted on time. Finally, you’ll have access to a legal team that knows the ins-and-outs of the SSA’s inner workings, and that means your application may be processed faster and with a greater chance of success.
