Tips for Winning Your Social Security Case

Improve Your Odds for Winning Your Social Security Case
Tip #1: Don’t lose hope. If your claim is denied, appeal. Know that the bulk of the initial applications are rejected. It may happen to you. If it does, the next step is to initiate a Request for Reconsideration. Here too, claimants may have to face denial. No problem, file a Request for an Administrative Hearing before a judge. It can be physically taxing and mentally draining, but those who don’t give up stand a chance of having their claims accepted. The long waiting period of one to two years should be used to gather medical documentation that buttresses your claim.

Tip #2: Answer Social Security Questions honestly. Be accurate in describing your state when asked about your medical history. Since the SSA will want to see the medical records from providers that you visit, you must ensure that you provide the SSA with accurate contact information. This ensures that the process proceeds smoothly and will also help your case.

Tip #3: Gather medical evidence that will help you with proving your disability. The importance of having medical evidence to support your case cannot be stressed enough. You must regularly visit a doctor for health conditions related to the disability. If you cannot afford regular visits to a doctor then find out about charitable dispensaries and local community organizations that could help you.

Tip #4: Hire an attorney to appeal a denial.
If your initial claim is denied, you should consider taking professional help from an attorney.

Claimants who are not approved initially have to appeal. In fact, the bulk of the claimants face rejection and have to take the appeals route. You will boost your chances of approval at a hearing before an administrative law judge if you appear with a lawyer.
