Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) is a complex process, so hiring a lawyer can make the process easier to manage. A lawyer can review your application, explain the application process and timeline, and help you file an appeal if the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies your initial application.
If you want to avoid the stress and frustration of dealing with the SSD system on your own, you should get a lawyer for a South Carolina Social Security Disability claim. When our team represents you, we make sure your application is complete, collect your medical and financial evidence, and work by your side throughout the process. We also keep you informed of your case’s progress from start to finish.
How an SSD Attorney Helps Your Case
Because the application process can be time-consuming and complex, SSA guidelines provide applicants with a guide for working with an SSD attorney. According to its guidance, working with a lawyer on your disability claim in South Carolina has its advantages. They can:
- Retrieve information from your Social Security file
- Obtain supportive medical records and evidence
- Obtain financial and employment information
- Represent you at meetings and interviews
- Request an appeal on your behalf
- Ensure you are ready for the interview process
When our SSD attorney represents you, the SSA will work with us during the application process. They will ensure we receive notification of any decisions made in your case. To reduce worry and concern on your part, our team will make a point of providing you with ongoing updates on your case any time there is a change or a decision is made.

Apply for the Right SSD Program
If you have a disabling condition that prevents you from working to support yourself and your family, you may qualify for two disability programs. When our SSD lawyer represents you, we will:
- Explain the qualifying criteria for each program
- Explain each program’s features and benefits
- Thoroughly review your application before we submit it
Under certain circumstances, you might be able to receive simultaneous benefits from both disability programs. If so, we will ensure your application reflects it because our goal is to help you get all the medical and financial benefits you are entitled to receive.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
SSDI benefits meet the medical and financial needs of insured individuals. You are insured if you:
- Worked long enough
- Worked recently enough
- Paid Social Security taxes
You must also have a qualifying disability that is expected to last for a minimum of one year or result in your demise. Our lawyer will help you prove you meet the eligibility markers for SSDI benefits.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
SSI benefits are need-based. This means you must prove you have a significant need for financial assistance and support. If you are:
- Retirement age
Our SSD attorney will compile the evidence that proves you have little to no income. If the SSA approves your application, you will be eligible for monetary support to help you obtain food, clothing, and a secure residence.
