SSDI: Before You File Your Claim

Consider At Least Speaking With A Lawyer Or Other Professional

Next » « Previous


Unless your situation is cut and dry, consider speaking with a lawyer or other professional who specializes in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to discuss the best way to present your case, to possibly oversee what you do, and/or to represent you.

Since it can be difficult to deal with a big government organization and a serious health condition at the same time, consider asking a friend or family member to help you -- whether officially as your representative, or just as a person to work with you. Review our information about hiring a representative to see whether you want to hire professional help during the initial determination process, or (as we strongly suggest) just if you appeal.
