Not always. In fact, you should initially apply on your own at your local Social Security office since you may be awarded benefits at the local level without incurring attorney’s fees. If you receive a denial of your claim, you should contact a lawyer immediately since you only have sixty (60) days to appeal and file a Request for Hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
Do I need a lawyer to initially apply for SSD or SSI benefits?
