First Steps

The Social Security Disability claims process is complex. If you become disabled and can’t work, you may have to wait months, sometimes years, before you obtain Social Security Disability benefits. But there are steps you can take to increase your chances of obtaining a favorable result early in the process.

Get an experienced attorney on your side from the start. File your initial application with the help of a qualified Social Security disability attorney who fully understands the process and can guide you every step of the way.

File as soon as possible. The claims process can take months, even years. In addition, if you wait too long, you run the risk of having your disability insurance expire. Don’t wait to file unless your attorney advises you to do so.

Build your case thoroughly. A successful claim is built on solid medical evidence, accurate work records and thorough supporting documentation. An ACA Law Social Security disability attorney will coordinate with your physician and assist you in gathering the medical evidence, work records and supporting documentation required to build a strong case for your claim.

If you need to appeal… If your initial application is rejected and you need to appeal your claim, make sure an ACA Law Social Security disability attorney is with you at your hearing. Attending a hearing without an attorney can hurt your chances of having your claim approved.
