Some days, it’s hard to find the energy to keep fighting for what you need. When you need someone on your side, working to tackle the Social Security Disability system, it is time to call in some help.
It usually takes only a few months for a denial to be issued. Sometimes it takes less than one month. It often takes longer for a decision to be issued finding you disabled. You can sign up with an attorney at any time during the application process to help you move towards your best possible outcome.
