If you are living with a disability in Illinois, you might be considering applying for Social Security Disability benefits. However, you may have heard that SSA repeatedly refuses applications, even when the disability is well-documented. An Illinois disability insurance attorney can help.
Can’t Pay? Don’t Worry
Almost every known disability attorney works on contingency. This means that they don’t get paid until you are approved for benefits. Then they bill you for their services and only take a small percentage. If you don’t get approved with the attorney’s help and appeals, the attorney doesn’t collect anything. Ergo, it’s in his or her best interests to get you approved.
It Can Still Take Awhile
Understand that even with an Illinois disability insurance attorney, it can still take some time to be approved for benefits. If you don’t have an extensive savings account or a spouse who can help pay the bills through this process, you may have to find alternate solutions. When the money for your benefits is paid, it will be back paid for six months. After paying your lawyer, this amount will help you catch up, but many creditors may not wait.
Discuss your disability and what you are attempting to do with all of your creditors. Some are willing to wait or provide the means of delaying bill payments. If you are really fortunate, your benefits will be approved in three months or less. With a lawyer’s help, it could happen. Find out more about the Law Offices of Jeffrey A.
