If a person has become disabled, they may be eligible for SSI. SSI will give them a monthly payment. This payment will be based on several different factors. Many disabilities qualify for SSI disability in South Dakota, but it can be tricky to apply for and get. This is why it is a good idea to hire a disability lawyer.
The SSI Process
To start the process to get SSI, a person will need to apply online or apply in person at their local Social Security office. The application process is long, and there will be a lot of questions about a person’s health. Filling out this application will take some time, and the applicant will want to ensure that they fill out everything properly. Missing any part of the application can result in a delay.
After the application has been completed, the applicant will turn it in. The review process can take up to six months. For many people, their first application is denied. Some people may choose to give up after a denial letter, but hiring an SSI disability South Dakota attorney can help the applicant win their case.
What Does an Attorney Do?
An attorney will take a look at the application to see whether or not something has been missed. From there, they will work to prove the medical need for SSI. They will appeal the decision by the Social Security Administration. They do not charge a person until after their case has been won. For more information, contact Ficek Law, PC.
