Only about 37% of initial Social Security disability claims are approved. Unfortunately many claims, if not most, are never appealed and the applicant loses all chance of receiving their monthly "cash in the bank." However, of the disability claims that are appealed and are heard before an Administrative Law Judge, the chances of winning reach about 50%, especially if the applicant wisely hires a Social Security disability lawyer to assist in preparing the paperwork, subpoenaing witnesses, questioning witnesses on the stand and more. A person filing for Social Security disability benefits bears the burden to show that they are disabled and a good Social Security disability lawyer can be a valuable asset during the fight.
