An October 20 article on stated that without a lawyer’s help, it is difficult and confusing to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

The article specifically refers to Alabama residents, many of whom must wait years to have their case decided on by a judge. One example was former nurse Linda Bowen who developed pancreatitis. She began receiving her benefits four years after initially filing, which she was only able to do with the help of a lawyer hired by her former employer. Linda’s husband Matthew filed his SSDI application last year and will have to wait until the end of 2015 before his claim gets heard. Disabled Alabama individuals are seeing the advantage of seeking a lawyer’s help in the SSDI filing process.
