Disability (SSDI) Application

Working with a Disability Advocate vs a Local Attorney

As disability advocates, The Advocator Group could provide you with several advantages over a local representative. First, we will assist you during every step of the disability application process–a process that is complex and can be very stressful. We are here to help you understand the procedures, educate you on the many types of paperwork you may receive, and we commit to being with you at every juncture. Many attorneys handling disability cases don’t get involved until the hearing (which is typically the third stage of the process and can take two or more years to arrive). When you’re disabled and unable to work, it’s important to gain access to your Social Security disability benefits as soon as possible so you can take one more step toward financial well-being. This is why you should partner yourself with professionals who know the disability application process inside and out.

Not only does hiring a local legal representative potentially leave you on your own until the hearing stage, but it also poses the risk that they will not specialize in disability issues. Therefore, a general practice attorney may not be able to provide you with the necessary guidance and education throughout the application process. With something as important as your SSDI claim, you need to rely on a team of professionals that specialize in helping people advance through the disability application process successfully.

Why use a disability advocate

That’s why at The Advocator Group we have both disability advocates and disability lawyers (should your claim move to the hearing stage) working on your claim. Working toward obtaining Social Security disability benefits for our clients is the only thing we do, and we have over 15 years of experience helping individuals like you obtain their awards.

Our Experience

Not only do we specialize in SSDI advocacy, but we employ a system that works; this has contributed greatly to our success in acquiring benefits for thousands of our clients over the last 15 years. We will manage your disability claim from the very beginning with the intention of seeking an early award. Since your disability claim can take anywhere from 3 to 5 months in just the first stage alone (it could take well over two years if you ultimately need to attend a hearing where a disability lawyer becomes necessary), it’s important to start the process in an efficient manner. This means gathering all of the documentation you’ll need and filling out the application correctly which is usually not something carefully attended by disability attorneys. When it comes to receiving disability benefits, months – or even weeks – can make a significant difference.

Filing a successful disability claim can be difficult, and many initial SSDI claims are not approved, so it’s important to make sure you have the assistance and representation you need to help your claim progress as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our ultimate goal is to make sure you and your family are taken care of, so whether you’re applying for the first time or appealing after you’ve already been denied, we have the expertise and dedication required to guide you through the process from start to finish.

Technological Advantages

Not only are we honored by the opportunities we have to enrich lives and walk alongside our clients through each step of an often long and difficult journey, but we are proud to be able to invest in meaningful technology that allows us to better meet the needs of our clients and further streamline the SSDI application process for them.

  • Our sophisticated client portal exceeds what disability attorneys can provide and allows our clients to upload or change information pertaining to their claim (including updating some contact information or uploading medical records/key documents), find resources, check claim status, etc. anytime they want – all without picking up the phone.
  • Our centralized mailing system allows us to both send and receive key documentation quickly and efficiently. It has enabled us to grow and ensure that we are able to help more people while still providing each client with our full level of support.
  • We also utilize email to keep in touch with our clients and allow them to be as involved and informed as possible throughout the process without them having to pick up the phone. We keep our clients informed and involved via email; we want them to be aware of what is needed, what comes next, and what they can be doing to help their claim progress.
  • Client satisfaction is extremely important to us, so we look at the performance results of our emails to assess how we could further improve communications. We want to be sure that our clients are getting the information they need and want at the right times.

We also take pride in providing clients with education and resources throughout the claims process. We can offer or refer individuals to several money-saving resources, like our free-of-charge prescription savings card, as well as educate them on the SSDI process in general. There is a lot to learn when you apply for SSDI, and we consider ourselves experts not only on the various stages of the application process, but also on any future steps to come and ways to make the process feel less burdensome.

The Advocator Group will be here to support you through every stage of your claim. Our vision is to help as many people as possible, and this does not only mean getting you an SSDI award, but also includes providing you with exceptional service and making sure you feel supported and encouraged every step of the way.
