Get Disability Benefits and Gain Financial Stability

You’ve recently had stop working due to a health condition, and now you’re scrambling to pay your bills. At a time when you should be focusing on your health, you’re instead worried about your financial security.

With monthly benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA), you could receive the money you need to pay your bills and gain some peace of mind.

However, getting benefits is not that simple.

In fact, two-thirds of people who apply for benefits are denied.

That’s why you need a disability lawyer or advocate on your side. With their experience, they can help you secure the benefits you deserve.

You may be wondering how much a disability lawyer or advocate will cost you. But there’s good news: You don’t have to pay anything up front to start working with an advocate.

At Hanley Disability, we are a team of disability advocates that has been helping people in Indianapolis, Danville, Franklin, Lebanon, Noblesville and across Central Indiana for more than 45 years.

We can explain to you how the process works—and how we can help you pursue your benefits and reach a better time in life—before you commit to working with an advocate.

How Much Does It Cost to Get a Disability Lawyer or Advocate?

Regardless of whether you work with a Social Security Disability lawyer, or a disability advocate who’s not an attorney, the way you pay for their services is the same:

  • You won’t pay any upfront fees: You will receive a free consultation to start. And a disability attorney or advocate cannot charge you a retainer. It’s against Social Security rules.
  • You still don’t pay any fee until you win benefits: Your disability advocate at Hanley Disability will work on your claim for free. We only collect a fee when your claim is successful. We will help you at no charge at the initial application stage and help you appeal a denial of benefits.
  • You won’t pay in the form of deductions from future disability checks: Your advocate’s fees will come out of your back pay—that is a lump sum that Social Security awards you to cover the time you spent waiting on their decision to approve your benefits. You won’t pay anything out of your future monthly checks from the SSA.
  • The amount you do pay is capped: Your disability advocate can receive a maximum of 25% of your back pay, up to $7,200. No more than that.

What Your Disability Lawyer or Advocate Does for You When You Need Benefits

When you work with a Social Security Disability attorney or advocate, they can make this entire, complicated process go more smoothly for you, including:

  • Filling out all the forms, which can be complex and confusing, especially if you’ve never done it before.
  • Collecting proof of your health condition, including medical test results, doctors’ notes, a list of your prescriptions and testimony from people who are familiar with you and your condition.
  • Appealing a denial, which could require going to a hearing and arguing your case for benefits.
  • Keeping you on top of deadlines and handling the entire process from start to finish, so you can focus on your health.

You don’t have to take on all of this yourself. It can seem intimidating, but with the disability advocates at Hanley Disability in your corner, you can increase your chances of winning the benefits you need and deserve.

If you’re able to access benefits, you know you would feel much-needed relief.
