Disability law is complex, which is why many people who end up denied disability require a lawyer to get approved. While it may be obvious to you and anyone who meets you that you are disabled, often it is not obvious to the social security department. Having a lawyer who knows the ins and out of the system can be the primary difference between obtaining your disability check and SSI in Virginia Beach and barely scrapping by without it.
Before applying for social security, you need to prove you have been disabled for six months, which means that most people who apply for benefits have been without outcome for six months already. At that point, you probably have little income left and hardly any savings (if any), which is why you may now be eligible for SSI in Virginia Beach. However, SSI or supplemental insurance has its own guidelines that need to be met and its own application process. All of this together can be extremely confusing to someone who is facing medical issues and the stress of mounting financial issues.
With that in mind, if you are struggling to maintain your lifestyle while applying for or appealing a social security disability decision, it may be time to talk to a lawyer. The average applicant is approved quicker when they have a lawyer on their side to help them navigate the system. One mistake is all it takes to red-flag your application, don’t let it happen to you.
