How do you apply for benefits and do I need an attorney to do so?

If you are just applying for SSDI, you can go online to the Social Security website and file the application. If you are filing for SSI, you will need to call your local office and make the application. If you are unsure what you might be eligible for, it is better to call the local office and make an application for whatever benefits you are eligible to receive.

We are not here to take your money. We will answer any questions you may have over the telephone prior to making the application, but we ask that you start the process yourself and call us if your first decision is a denial. We feel that if you receive an approval on an initial application, you should not have to pay for an attorney.
