If you have become disabled and are now not able to work, it most likely is something you did not think would happen and you are not prepared.

If you are denied, and have already retained a disability lawyer, they will be able to complete your Social Security Disability reconsideration paperwork for you in a timely manner.

If you decide to wait until after you are denied Social Security Disability benefits to hire a Social Security Disability lawyer, it is important to contact the disability attorney as soon as possible after you receive the denial letter. You will have sixty days from the date of the denial letter to file your appeal, but most disability lawyers will need at least one month to evaluate your disability claim in order to complete the reconsideration paperwork.
