Will I need a lawyer when applying for disability?

Lawyers and appeals

Hire yourself a lawyer specializing in disability. The SSA (and your own insurance companies)are in the business of rooting out malingerers, and in the process they tend to also root out many people with legitimate claims who didn't know how to properly present their own cases. SSA rejects 75% of the claims that they receive, and 82% of the claims appealed to them for reconsideration.
