Understanding the Process of Filing for Social Security Disability

For many Michigan residents, the thought of filing for Social Security Disability benefits is daunting. Many are unsure of where to begin, how long the process will take and which pieces of information they will need to gather for a successful SSD application.

Fortunately, the attorneys at Willis Law have helped the people of southwest Michigan pursue SSD benefits for years, and we can help you too. We take immense pride in our reputation for providing outstanding customer service, and we will work diligently to help you obtain the benefits you need for a secure future.

How Our Law Firm Helps Clients Through The Process

Without legal knowledge, the application for SSD benefits is often intimidating. By securing legal representation early in the process, you can avoid this feeling. Our attorneys will walk you through the application process, explain which documents you need to support your claim and ensure that the Social Security Administration has all of the information it needs to make a decision on your case.

Also, by beginning the process with an attorney's help, you will not waste time obtaining documents that are irrelevant to your situation or file an application that is incomplete. When time is of the essence, as it so often is for those who need SSD benefits to remain financially stable, why risk extending the process?
