Applying for Disability Benefits in Illinois
Are you uncertain about how to file an application for Social Security Disability benefits? Are you reluctant to engage the help of a lawyer because you think you can't afford it?
I am attorney Timothy White, and I have helped thousands of people like you throughout Chicago to file for Social Security benefits. I can assist you with Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), children's benefits and much more.
As a rule, individuals who have quality legal representation are much more likely to have their application approved.
How an Experienced Attorney Can Help
You can file for benefits on the website of the Social Security Administration (SSA), by calling the SSA or by visiting its local office. In either case, a skilled attorney can be a powerful asset to your success. With more than 15 years of experience in this area, I can:
- Explain what to expect from the process
- Explain what questions the SSA will ask
- Show how your answers may impact your case
- Help you fill out the application effectively
- Prepare you for interviews
Many people do not realize how important it is to understand exactly what the SSA is looking for and how to present their cases in the very best light. For example, if you write down on the questionnaire that you enjoy bowling, but you fail to mention that you haven't been able to bowl for a year because of your disability, the SSA may conclude that you are not truly disabled and deny your claim.
This is just one of many areas where my Chicago law firm can help you avoid costly mistakes and improve your chance of success.
Pay No Money Up Front
I work on a contingency fee basis, so I only get paid when you do. You do not have to provide any money up front. In addition, all lawyers' fees are carefully regulated by the federal government and must be approved by the SSA.
