For most people in Missouri, the process of applying for and obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits can seem more than a little intimidating. A common question that potential applicants ask is whether they need a lawyer to get them through the SSD claim process. The answer depends in large part upon the nature of the process itself.
The Social Security Administration publishes pamphlets and information sheets that explain the SSDI claim process. These documents are also available on the SSA web site. In fact, many claims can be filed online. So where does a lawyer come in?
