Qualities of a disability attorney
To win your disability claim, you need a skilled disability attorney to guide you through the process. Some of the skills and abilities you should be looking for in a disability attorney are:
- Track record and expertise - Make sure the attorney knows the nooks and crannies of the disability law, SSA's norms, rules, and regulations. Find a lawyer with at least ten years of experience in handling disability cases. Speak with the attorney to know about his track record, approval rates, number of wins for full benefits, partial benefits, etc.
- Availability and commitment - Try to find an attorney who works as a part of a large team comprising of other equally skilled attorneys, paralegals, and legal assistants. You need this because, in the absence of your lawyer, other qualified people will be answering your questions, return your calls, and provide timely legal advice.
- Professionalism - Make sure your lawyer treats you with respect and prioritizes your case amidst his other tasks. Disability attorneys are generally extremely busy. However, that doesn't mean you should put up with bad service and impolite communications. Whenever you need advice or case updates, make sure that the lawyer will act with the utmost professionalism in addressing your questions and concerns.
Your working relationship with your attorney is a long-lasting one; make sure you choose the right person to handle your claim. Learn more details about our team of attorneys and their track record.
Can I work part-time while getting disability?
You may work part-time while receiving disability benefits; however, your part-time work can affect your disability payments to a certain extent. If the income you receive from other sources exceeds the income limit for Substantial Gainful Activity, you may stop receiving disability benefits.
You may earn an income of up to $1220 per month through Substantial Gainful Activity. The SGA limit is $2040 for blind applicants. If you earn more than this limit from your part-time job, the SSA no longer considers you as disabled and will stop its disability payments to you. For more information, call us today.
