Calabasas, CA (PressExposure) April 15, 2009 -- With so many people out of work, thousands of new applicants each day file for Social Security Disability Insurance. Unfortunately, this means even longer waiting times for out of work, financially strapped, disabled individuals. With average waiting times of one to three years, those who truly need assistance often find work instead. They try to minimize their disabilities and take any job they can find.
But with fewer jobs available the disabled must wait. And the wait is getting longer and longer. âSoon many disabled persons will be in serious dangerâ, says Attorney Kenton Kozden. âToday, more are turned out to live on the streets. And even those who have a dry bed are literally starving,â he says. âThe saddest part is once they are transient it becomes next to impossible to move their cases along. They have no mailing address and most have no telephone.â
Kozden takes many calls each week from those calling on payphones. âSometimes,â he admits, âthey have to reverse the charges so we can complete a needed conversation.â With fewer jobs more people will qualify for SSDI because the jobs they could perform no longer exist. But at this point no one knows how long it will take to process all these new applications.
The need for speed is driving more and more disabled persons to seek legal assistance. Proven studies indicate that the help of a good attorney can cut the waiting time in half. But finding competent legal council can be a chore. The easiest route is to go to the web. So, finding a way to get online is becoming more and more important. But even when a searcher gets online there is still a lot to overcome.
Simply Google SSDI. Thereâs over one million pages related to SSDI on the web today. Searchers are hard pressed to know what is real information and what is just sales jargon. But the first task for SSDI applicants is to find a qualified, local attorney and the best way to find one is through an online SSDI Attorney Directory. Luckily, nost good SSDI legal specialists are listed in the webâs largest directories.
Take, for instance http://www.social-security-lawyers.net. This is the first site that comes up in Google shen searching for social security lawyers. The site offers one of the largest directory of social security lawyers in the nation.
