Should I apply for Social Security Benefits? Our Social Security attorneys at Hoglund law offices help people get Social Security benefits when they cannot work full-time because of medical problems that will (or are expected to) last a year. Social Security evaluates whether people are disabled through an adminsitrative process that can sometimes take 2 to 3 years. Your first call can be to us (1-800-850-7867) or to Social Security (1-800-772-1213). When we get phone calls from across the country from people at any level, we discuss your situation and let you know whether we can help you. There is no fee unless you are approved. Calls to Social Security can start an application that is followed up by a Social Security office near you. Keep in mind that the Social Security disability process can be intimidating. Delays are common. Appeals have strict deadlines. Our law firm does very well at making sure that Social Security has the information it needs when it needs it. That involves working with our clients at critical times. Ultimately, from application to reconsideration to hearings and beyond, our paralegals and attorneys address issues at all junctures. Our web site describes the process and how we can help you: hoglundlaw.com. One of the best places to understand about how Social Security works in general is the government site itself: ssa.gov.
