If you find yourself in the unfortunate event where you have become disabled, chances are you are concerned about how you will provide for you and your family while you are unable to work. It is well known that Social Security have programs available to provide people in need with financial support, what might not be well known, especially to someone with more on his mind, is how to go about accessing this fund.

Go it alone or hire a lawyer:

Of course you can apply for benefits without the assistance and guidance of disability lawyers in Kansas City. If the reason for going it alone is money; don’t worry. Disability lawyers work on contingency, it will not cost you anything in legal fees until the lawyer wins you case and then the legal fee will be paid out of your first tranche of money.

It is not only the legal fee, if you go it alone chances are you will not succeed. There is no guarantee that a lawyer will either but the chances are far better. If you are denied benefits having a lawyer will help with the next stage which is the appeal.

Preparing for your appeals hearing:

Why would a disabled individual know how to properly prepare for a disability hearing? This is something that no one wants and certainly don’t take lessons in. Disability lawyers in Kansas City don’t have this problem, it is their job to understand and have the expertise that is needed to deal with the complexities of preparing properly for the hearing.

A seasoned disability lawyer may also win you more backpay. When you are finally granted benefits by the SSA there is a set start date, the first payment is backdated to what is known as the “onset date.” Your lawyer can argue an early onset date which will reflect in a larger backpay.

Disability lawyers in Kansas City are well worth having. The complexities of the system are such that attempting to get benefits without legal assistance can be very difficult. You are invited to discuss the merits of your case with the Grundy Disability Group.
