The Social Security Disability Process

Do I need a Lawyer?

 

To a degree, seeking social security disability (SSDI) benefits often seems like you are speaking a different language.  The process involves complicated and often confusing forms and medical documentation.  The Social Security Administration does nothing to make the process clear or understandable.  As a result, contending with the myriad of administrative rules and forms can be extremely time consuming and stressful.  Even worse, errors in filing may result in a social security disability claim denial. 

 

The end result is that up to seventy percent of all claims for disability get denied at the initial claim level!

 

With a social security disability lawyer, you significantly improve your chances of success. The fact is that, with representation, over fifty percent of cases heard by Administrative Law Judges get approved.  That figure alone makes retaining one of our experienced social security disability attorneys a wise choice.

 

Additionally, there is no risk.  No legal fees are collected if your social security disability claim is not successful.  You can also be assured that all aspects of your case, including complicated paper work, will be handled confidentially and professionally.

 

How Can I Improve My Case?

 

Your chances for approval on your social security disability (SSDI) claim increases dramatically by very simply following through with regular medical treatments for the condition. This will allow you to provide complete documentation of your impairment and how it affects your daily activities.

How Long does Social Security Disability Process Take:

 

Once your initial Social Security Disability (SSDI) Application has been filed, your documentation is  provided to Disability Determination Services.  After being processed, the application and any supporting documentation is provided to a social security disability examiner.  This is where the process starts.  The social security disability examiner will often seek any missing medical records that document the applicant’s impairment.  Waiting for those records may take many months. It is only after those records have been thoroughly reviewed that the claim is initially allowed or denied.

 

If denied, a Social Security Disability (SSDI) Hearing must be scheduled.  There are detailed procedures that must be followed to seek that hearing. After that Social Security Disability hearing has been requested, it may still take up to one year before you have your hearing.  Even after that hearing, it may take another three to six  months for a Judge to render a decision.  

 

If your claim is then denied, you may immediately seek reconsideration of that denial.  A decision on that request for reconsideration may take several months.  If the claim is denied, you may immediately file a request for a hearing.

Services Provided:
