Technically, there are no “free” attorneys, but at Newlin Disability we only get paid if you win.
The cost of hiring a Social Security Disability Attorney is pretty consistent across the industry as Congress set the fees that attorneys can charge for this service. Attorneys generally charge 25% of your past due benefits. This fee is capped at $7,100. These fees are only paid if you win and they come out of benefits due to you meaning you will not have to pay out of pocket.
We offer free consultations, during which we will evaluate your case and explain the process of applying for disability benefits.
You can find a social security disability attorney by asking for referrals from friends or family members, searching online, or contacting your local bar association for a referral. We have many references from clients in the form of google reviews that we would love for you to check out.
When looking for a social security disability attorney, you should consider their experience, reputation, and success rate in handling disability cases. It’s also important to find an attorney who is communicative, responsive, and compassionate towards your situation. As one of the top SSDI firms in the country, we have a proven track record of experience and success.
A Social Security Disability Attorney can help you with the SSD application process by assisting with the completion of forms, gathering medical evidence, representing you at a hearing, and negotiating a settlement.
In December of 2017, the GAO published a study which found that claimants who had representatives were awarded benefits at a nearly 3 times higher rate than those without representatives.
Both programs are disability programs that are administered by the Social Security Administration. SSD provides monthly benefits to those who are insured under the program, based on their work history and an accumulation of work credits. SSI (Supplemental Security Income) is a needs-based program for individuals with limited income and resources.
The amount you can receive in SSD benefits is based on your average lifetime earnings and is determined by Social Security. This calculator will give you a rough estimate of what your benefits could be.
To be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you must have enough work credits and you must have a medical condition that makes you unable to work. That condition(s) must have lasted or be expected to last at least one year or result in death.
It can take several months to several years to get a decision on an SSD claim, as the process can be lengthy and complex.
Yes, you can work while receiving SSD benefits, but there are limits to the amount of income you can earn and still receive benefits. We refer to those limits as SGA.
To prove your disability, you will need to provide medical evidence from your treating physicians, including diagnosis, treatment, and test results.
Yes, you can appeal a denied SSD claim by requesting a reconsideration or a hearing before an administrative law judge.
