All this waiting to begin receiving social security disability benefits is understandably difficult. Fortunately, there are several options available to check the status of your disability application while you await a formal decision.
If you are unable to work due to a disability, you may be considering applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits to provide a source of income. People who apply for disability usually have many questions and knowing the answers can help make the application process a little less stressful.
The majority of social security disability applications are denied for insufficient medical information. Getting your medical records isn’t difficult, but there are some things to know ahead of time to make the process easier.
While you can apply for social security disability benefits on your own – which many people do – having an experienced attorney on your side greatly increases the chance that your application will be approved. Here’s how.
The best time to hire a disability attorney or disability advocate is before you begin the SSD application process. Though both disability attorneys and disability advocates know what information would best support your SSD application and can help you prepare for appeals, disability attorneys usually have more experience and training with trial prep, trial practice, and understanding legal precedent that could help during an appeal.
If your social security disability application was denied for lack of medical evidence, don’t panic! There are steps you can take to improve your chances of approval.
