You May Qualify for Legal Assistance

Qualifying for monthly SSDI payments isn’t easy for most people. In fact, only about 1 in every 5 first-time applicants got approved last year. Getting legal assistance with your claim makes you 2x more likely to get benefits approved on your very first try. Those who qualify for legal assistance typically get $10,000 in lump-sum back pay as well as monthly benefits. They also work on contingency, which means if the SSA doesn’t approve your claim, you’ll owe $0 in legal fees. In addition, having a lawyer file your claim can potentially cut your wait time for your first SSDI payment in half.
