Who can help me file for disability?
Anyone of your choosing can help you file for disability. They can come with you to file for disability, or help you file your disability claim online. They can represent you in an official or unofficial capacity.
That being said, you probably need a professional rather than a regular person such as yourself helping you with your disability claim. This person can be an attorney or non-attorney representative. They will help file your appeals if you are denied and basically keep your claim moving forward. They do not receive a "lawyer fee" unless your disability case results in an approval for benefits.
And, if your disability case ends up at a administrative law judge disability hearing hearing, you are more likely to be approved if you have a professional who is familiar with Social Security rules, regulations, and law representing your case. They will present the facts of your disability claim in an objective manner that is more favorable for your being approved for disability benefits.
