Tips To Win Your SSD Claim
Here are a few things to keep in mind if you are disabled and seeking Social Security Disability benefits:
- Act promptly — The SSD application process can be lengthy, and you may not know if your claim has been accepted for more than a year. If you are disabled and unable to work, do not delay applying for SSD benefits.
- Keep all medical documentation — The Social Security Administration requires extensive documentation of your medical condition/disability. Keep all records and documentation of medical care, treatments, receipts, etc. It is also advisable to keep a journal documenting symptoms associated with your disability.
- Work with an SSD attorney — The process of applying for SSD benefits can be overwhelming. Working with a lawyer during the process can take the guesswork away. If your claim is denied, it is highly advisable to work with an attorney during the appeals process. An attorney can also ensure that all essential medical documentation is obtained from your doctor.
- Remember this important piece of advice — If your initial claim is denied, do not hesitate to seek an appeal. The majority of initial claims are denied by the Social Security Administration. But that does not mean that individuals seeking disability benefits do not have a legitimate disability. Work with an attorney who believes in your case and will help you appeal your claim so you receive the benefits you need and deserve.
