Do You Know Your Social Security Disability Lawyer?

Posted on in Social Security Disability

Are you applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits? Are you represented by an attorney? Do you know who your attorney is?

You would think that the answer to all of those questions is obvious. However, you would be surprised just how many claimants are unable to answer any of those questions. When considering representation for a disability claim, ask yourself the following questions:

1) Have you spoke with your attorney before?

2) Is your representative actually an attorney?

3) Does the attorney limit his or her practice to representing people with disabilities?

4) Is the attorney you speak with on a regular basis the one who will be going to court with you?

5) When is the last time you heard from your attorney?

6) Is the disability attorney handling all of your appeals or are you doing them yourself?

7) Does your disability attorney know who you are?

All of these questions should be answered if you are looking to get Social Security disability benefits, whether SSDI or SSI. Some questions may not be as important to you as others. You should however at least know the answers to those questions. The first step in any tough spot is to know your situation.
