Social Security Application Basics
Law Offices of Eric A. Shore, P.C. — Member NOSSCR
- There are three main ways to apply: online at SSA.gov, by phone at 1-800-772-1213, or in person at your local Social Security office. Speaking with one of our lawyers before applying can help you to avoid common mistakes.
- Decisions can be reached in as little as three months or take one year or longer.
- Most applications are denied the first time around, but do not give up. Your lawyer should appeal your case. Your chances of winning increase at the hearing level. Having a lawyer at the hearing statistically increases your chances of winning.
- If you have already applied and were denied benefits, do not be discouraged. You have the right to appeal this decision. Our attorneys and paralegals can help. You have a limited time to appeal so call today 1-800-691-9962.
Experienced, Focused and Dedicated
If you are disabled and cannot work, our firm can help you navigate the complicated Social Security application process. Over the past 18 years, attorneys here have helped more than 25,000 individuals with their Social Security cases. Unlike many law firms or attorneys who take a case here and a case there — handling SSD and SSI claims are what we do every day.
Because of our years of experience, we not only know the law, but we also know how the machinery of this big government bureaucracy works and what kind of information, evidence and detail the Social Security Administration looks for in a Social Security disability or SSI application.
Our lawyers can help you no matter where you are in the process. If you have not yet applied, we can help you prepare for your application. Make sure you speak with one of our attorneys before your interview. After you apply we will try to help you win without getting denied. However, if you are denied at the initial level then we will appeal for you and represent you in front of a judge.
To receive the benefits of our skill and experience, you do not even have to leave the privacy of your own home and you do not need to live near our office locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We help people nationwide.
