Kansas Social Security Disability Lawyers

Social Security Disability Benefits

Going through the application process for Social Security disability benefits in Kansas can be difficult for people who are not familiar with the system. According to statistics published by the Social Security Administration (SSA), Kansas is the 3rd most difficult state for claimants to get awarded disability benefits. Over 64% of claimants are turned down on their initial application, and over 84% of claimants are turned down after their first appeal. An experienced Social Security lawyer knows what the SSA is looking for and can help to increase the chances you will be awarded benefits.

Appeals are Different from Initial Applications

In the initial application, SSA will review the paperwork submitted. Sometimes SSA will send claimants for examinations, but there are no formal meetings with the adjuster reviewing the claim. After two appeals, a claimant will have to attend a formal hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). This is an in-person hearing with the person who will make the decision on whether you are disabled. Claimants can have a lawyer representing them at this hearing, and can have witnesses testify about your disability.  The chances of getting awarded benefits at the ALJ level are higher than any other level.

NO UPFRONT FEES & FREE CONSULTATION

Our firm does not charge up-front fees for Social Security Disability cases. You do not have to pay anything if you are not awarded benefits. If you are awarded benefits, our attorney fee is 25% of the backpay awarded. If you are awarded benefits you get to keep 100% of the benefits moving forward.

Skylar K.

I had been injured in a vehicle wreck in February of 2014. The insurance company handling my claim insisted on low-balling me and giving me the runaround. After nearly two years had passed, I had made no progress in regards to reaching a resolution, that seemed fair and appropriate to ...
