How Much Will This Cost?
Typically, the only people who file for Social Security disability benefits are those who are unable to work or who cannot make enough to support themselves.
So how can applicants for Social Security disability afford to hire disability attorneys to help them through the process?
At Hensley Legal Group, we work on contingency. That means that unless and until you are approved for benefits, you don’t owe us a single penny.
That’s right. If you don’t get approved, we don’t get paid. It’s that simple.
That’s why we can offer a risk-free guarantee to our clients. If you do not get approved for benefits, you won’t owe us any payment, no matter how long we’ve worked on your claim. There’s no risk to you if you choose to hire us.
If you do get approved for benefits, you don’t have to worry about an unexpected or unreasonable attorney’s fee. Social Security regulates how much disability attorneys can charge for our services. Our fee is 25 percent of your past due benefits, capped at $6,000. Only under rare circumstances would that fee change. Our attorneys are happy to walk you through our fee structure so you’re prepared for any circumstance.
How Long Will This Take?
Unfortunately, the process for applying for Social Security disability benefits is famous for being long, difficult, and frustrating.
As of June 2018, those applying for disability in Evansville spend an average of 18 months waiting for a hearing. That doesn’t include the time spent applying, being denied, appealing, and being denied again.
Although we cannot speed up the process, our Evansville disability lawyers can make sure to keep your claim on track. We’ll file before every deadline and continue to gather evidence and build your claim during the long months of waiting. At Hensley Legal Group, we’ll make sure the time you spend waiting isn’t wasted.
