Q:How do I apply?
A:You can apply online or in person. However, sometimes people make errors in applying that delay their case. Thus, the easiest way to apply is to call us.
Q:Can I qualify for disability if I’m working?
A:There are some exceptions and limitations. However, in most circumstances, the answer is no. If you are able to work, then Social Security considers you to not be disabled.
Q:Do I need an attorney?
A:Yes. In fact, Social Security’s own statistics show that a person is more likely to get disability benefits with an attorney than without one.
Q:How long does it take for Social Security to approve me?
A:It can be anywhere from a few months to two years, depending on the disabling condition and the available medical records. Furthermore, appeals to federal court take longer.
Q:If I get disability, will I be allowed to work?
A:Yes, but the rules are complicated. Get legal advice concerning any work activity.
Q:What is the attorney fee?
A:There is no fee unless we win. If you are granted benefits, then our fee is generally 25 percent of your past-due benefits.
