Rock Springs, Wyoming
Social Security Disability Lawyer in Rock Springs, Wyoming
Let a Rock Springs Disability Attorney Help you File for Disability BenefitsIn 1945, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created a federal program to create savings protection for people whose fortunes had been wiped out by The Great Depression and World War II. That program evolved into what we know today as social security benefits. Many people believe that the Social Security Administration only provides retirement benefits, but is not the case. If you can prove to the government's satisfaction that you are disabled and cannot work a full-time job, you can qualify for benefit payments to offset any income you may have lost.
Thousands of Americans yearly are forced to leave their jobs because of a disability. Many of them have found that applying for social security disability benefits on their own is a confusing and overwhelming task. For that reason, more people are turning to social security disability lawyers to help them win the SSD and SSI benefits that they need to keep themselves and their families afloat financially. The SSA does not mandate that you have to have a licensed lawyer for every portion of the application process. But having an experienced disability attorney can help you avoid many of the pitfalls that you might run into on your own.

Rock Springs is a coal mining town located in Sweetwater County in southern Wyoming. Among the city's attractions is a restored depot from the Union Pacific Railroad. The depot is part of a memorial to the coal miners that helped build the city into what it is today. Unfortunately today, in Sweetwater County, there are more than 5,000 people suffering from disabilities , many of them could qualify to receive SSD or SSI benefits.
To apply for SSD or SSI benefits you can visit a local branch office of the Social Security Administration, call the national toll-free hotline or go online to the SSA's website. You can also begin the application process by talking with a qualified social security disability attorney. It is important to note that for most people it may take anywhere from a few months to a couple of years from the date of your application to begin receiving benefits. The length of time depends in part upon how many appeals you must file and the levels to which you must appeal. If you must go before a social security disability judge the wait could be longer depending upon how backlogged their caseload is.
During this entire procedure, your SSD/SSI lawyer will be there to help you gather the necessary materials to put together the best possible case. The cost of hiring a disability attorney should not be a concern. Most work on a contingency basis, meaning that you will not have to pay anything until your case is won. The SSA has also created regulations that limit the amount of expenses you can be charged in most instances, which means that the legal fees are affordable for most people.
