Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits
The Law Offices of Stuart Pastor — Austin and Plano, Texas
The importance of your initial application for Social Security disability benefits cannot be underestimated. Your original Social Security disability application is your opportunity to introduce yourself and your circumstances to the government agency with the responsibility of deciding if you are entitled to Social Security benefits. Moreover, what you say in answer to the questions can be used against you at every stage of the appeals process.
The Social Security Disability application includes detailed questions about your medical condition, health care history, work history and financial circumstances. The answers that you give and the information that you provide have a major impact on the government agency's decision to grant you SSDI benefits based on your original application. You can seriously damage your case by the way these questions are answered or, on the other hand, with the assistance of a knowledgeable, experienced attorney your answers can increase the likelihood of a favorable decision.
If your claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied, you have the right to appeal. However, when you have to work through the appeals process before receiving benefits, you will have to wait months and usually years before you finally begin receiving benefits, assuming that a favorable decision is won.
I Focus on Helping You Win Your SSDI Case Early
Some disability benefits lawyers refuse to accept SSDI clients during the initial application phase, on the assumption that a lawyer's help is unnecessary at this point.
I prefer to get involved with my clients' cases from the very beginning of the initial filing process. I have been helping disabled people and their families apply for SSDI and SSI benefits since 1991. In my experience, applicants are much more likely to be successful with their original Social Security disability application if they have help from an experienced disability benefits attorney.
Your Initial Consultation Is Free — In Person or on the Phone
Our first appointment is free of charge, and I do not accept any legal fee from my Social Security clients unless their Social Security claim is approved.
I am available to meet with clients in my office or by telephone, depending on my clients' preferences. In most cases, the application process can be completed without my clients having to come into one of my offices.
If you are looking for assistance with your social security disability benefits claim, I invite you to contact one of my three offices to schedule a free initial consultation.
