I am in the process of applying for long term SSI disability. 99% of the time the 1st application Lawyer or no, you will be denied, that is the system. Then they reprocess with the doctors and it can take up to 2 years of investigating info gathering before money is paid. But it will go retro to the day you applied if the lawyer does their job correctly.
This is for long term, not the initial 6mos for short term, which you have to apply for first and be paid.
Make sure you have been paid all your vacation and sick time from work prior to the application being processed.. The lawyer should guide you in these type of things.
Best of luck to you in your process!
