Attorneys Get Results 300% Higher Than Those Without Representatives.

March 13, 2018 Blog

(From the National Organization of Social Security Claims Representatives, March 2018 NOSSCR Member Newsletter)

“A February, 2018 Government Accountability Office (GAO) study of hearings-level allowance rates for Social Security disability claims showed that “claimants who had representatives, such as an attorney or family member, were allowed bene ts at a rate nearly 3 times higher than those without representatives.” The report explains that in part this is due to representatives’ ability to select claims that are likely to be successful. However, the report also quotes SSA officials as stating “that a representative can help the claimant by ensuring that the medical evidence and other records are fully developed and help the claimant present their case at a hearing.” Although NOSSCR and its members already believed in the value of representation, it is helpful to have validation from an official source.”
