Do I need an attorney to help with my Social Security disability application?

You can seek legal help at any point in time during the application process, and having an attorney assist you has several potential benefits. Attorneys who specialize in handling Social Security matters are able to offer guidance regarding the specific information that is required for a claim to be approved. They will assist you in obtaining documentation that you may be missing and guide you through completion of forms required during the process. Attorneys also take over the responsibility of making sure all deadlines are met. You are not required to have an attorney at any stage of the application process; however, if a claim reaches the hearing stage, the Administrative Law Judges strongly encourage claimants to postpone the hearing and retain legal representation. Claimants must knowingly waive their right to representation if they choose to proceed without legal counsel.
