National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives Lawyer Referral Service Feequently Asked Questions Contact during Eastern business hours 1-800-431-2804

Established in 1979, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants' Representatives is an association of over 4,000 attorneys and other advocates who represent Social Security and Supplemental Security Income claimants. Our members are committed to providing high quality representation for claimants, to maintaining a system of full and fair adjudication for every claimant, and to advocating for beneficial change in the disability determination and adjudication process.

I think it might be harder to get approved without a lawyer, and I don't know if most people, can get approved for Social Security Disability, without a lawyer nowadays. A lawyer may be necessary at some point of the application process, and I think that if your original application gets denied the first or second time, having legal representation from there on, would be the smart, easy way. You get what you pay for, especially with the law! Legally, social security lawyers are only allowed, to take a fee of, about 16% and only after one is Approved and receives their retroactive check that pays them since the first date they applied. I think the fee is reasonable.
(See the Social Security Websites (above), or call Social Security at 1-800-772-1213,
for more information about applying or how to obtain a SSDI/SSI, attorney).
If you've been denied, keep applying the longer you wait the bigger the retroactive check will be! (for all the months you waited since you're first application).

Military Pathways
Take an Anonymous Mental Health Screening
To help those who may be struggling, the Department of Defense teamed up with the nonprofit organization, Screening for Mental Health®, to launch Military Pathways (formerly the Mental Health Self-Assessment Program®). The program is available online and over the phone,

It provides free, anonymous mental health and alcohol self-assessments for service personnel and family members in all branches including the National Guard and Reserve.

The self-assessments are a series of questions that, when linked together, help create a picture of how an individual is feeling and whether they could benefit from talking to a health professional.
