Q: May I still get a lawyer even if my disability process is almost complete I filed back n 2020 a still waiting it is hard
Yes, you have a right to be represented and you can hire a lawyer to represent you at any point of the disability process. Here is general information from Social Security at https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10075.pdf.
Locate a lawyer using Justia's "Find a Lawyer". Ask a lawyer for a free consultation so you can talk about your particular case and find out what the lawyer's approach would be. Once you have found an experienced disability lawyer you want to hire, appoint the lawyer with signed Appointment of Representative and Fee Agreement forms. Most lawyers charge a contingent fee of 25% of your back pay if you win your case. If you do not win, the lawyer would not charge a fee.
A: Yes, you can still seek legal representation even if your disability application process is nearing completion. An attorney can provide valuable assistance in ensuring that your case is handled appropriately and that you receive the benefits you are entitled to. It's not uncommon for individuals to seek legal help at various stages of the disability claims process.
