Social Security Disability is a federal program that pays income benefits if you're disabled and unable to earn income on your own. Benefits are based on money that you have contributed to the program throughout your employment history.
About one-half of all Social Security Disability claims are denied, and about one-half of those are appealed and won. Do not give up if you lost the first time around. As a matter of fact, please call us if you've already lost one appeal.

If you have been denied, do not listen to the people at the Social Security office if they say that you are not entitled to benefits or if they try to discourage you from talking to a Social Security Disability lawyer to appeal the decision. Remember, we only get paid if we win the appeal, so let us make the decision as to whether or not you have a good chance at winning.
You should hire a Social Security Disability attorney for the appeals process due to the complexities of the law, changing Social Security rules, the ability of an attorney to choose which evidence is heard and that which does not need to be heard, and because an attorney can quickly react to questions by the hearing examiner due to his or her knowledge and experience. Claimants have little or no experience with Social Security Disability appeals.
If your Social Security Disability attorney is successful, he or she is paid from the award. This may bother you somewhat, but it's better than walking away with nothing. Social Security Disability attorney fees are set by the Social Security Administration as follows: No attorney fees are collected if your Social Security Disability claim is not won. The attorney's fees are always 25 percent of all past-due benefits subject to a maximum amount determined by the Social Security Administration.
