Hampton Social Security Disability Resources

Any Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits application in Hampton, VA, can take four or five months to go through the initial review process, and only about 43 percent are approved at this stage. If your initial claim is denied, you can request a reconsideration, though the majority are also denied at this stage as well.

If you receive a denial following the first and second reviews, you will need to appeal the determination. An appeal will send your application into the cue for a hearing with an administrative law judge for a final determination. From beginning to end – initial claim to final appeal – the whole process can take a year or longer to complete.

To be found eligible under the Social Security Administration (SSA) guidelines for SSD, you must prove you’ve been unable to work due to long term or permanent disability. To apply for Hampton disability benefits, you can call the SSA at (800)772-1213, visit your local SSA office, or apply online at the SSA’s website. If you need help finding your local SSA office, you can call the phone number listed above, or visit the SSA’s Office Locator.

Your Hampton Social Security Disability Claim

Thorough medical documentation in your Hampton disability benefits application will increase your chances of being found eligible for SSD, but there’s still no guarantee you’ll be approved. A Hampton Social Security lawyer can help you increase your chances.

When disabled, financial resources are quite limited and you may be worried about paying for legal help. It’s important to realize that there are upfront expenses for hiring a Hampton Social Security attorney. In fact, the attorney is only paid if you are found eligible for SSD benefits. Social Security attorneys receive 25% (to a max of $6,000) of the total retroactive benefits you’re paid when SSD starts for you.
