Understanding how to get Social Security Disability Grant

The process that can be confusing and difficult to navigate. Only 35% of Social Security administration applications are successfully accepted and another 15% are reconsidered for the grant. However, the majority of applications face rejection.

The importance of having an accurate, well-documented case cannot be overstated. A small error can lead to a complete denial of benefits, which can be very difficult to overturn. A disability attorney can help you with the application process and improve your chances of being approved for benefits.

Why is it Important to Get Professional Help?

Obtaining your complete medical records:  In order to get disability benefits, you will need to provide extensive documentation of your disabling condition. This includes medical records from all of your treating physicians, as well as any tests or imaging studies that have been performed. An experienced attorney will know how to get these records and make sure that they are included in your application.

Reviewing your case for mistakes: The SSA denies most applications that are initially submitted. One of the most common reasons for denial is errors in the application itself. A lawyer will be able to review your application for mistakes and help you make any necessary corrections before submitting your claim. 

Identifying all of the ways your disability prevents you from working: When you apply for disability benefits, you will need to show that your condition prevents you from working. An attorney can help you identify all of the ways in which your disability affects your ability to work and make sure that this information is included in your application.

Submitting necessary paperwork on time: The SSA has strict deadlines for submitting paperwork. If you miss a deadline, your claim may be denied. A lawyer will make sure that all deadlines are met and that the required paperwork is submitted on time.

Answering questions from the SSA: The SSA will likely have questions about your case. A lawyer can help you prepare for these questions and make sure that you are providing the SSA with the information they need to make a decision on your claim.

Preparing you for your hearing: If your claim is denied, you will have the opportunity to appeal the decision and have a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. An attorney can help you prepare for this hearing and make sure that you are presenting your case in the best possible light.

Appealing a denial of benefits: If your claim is denied, you have the right to appeal the decision. An attorney can help you with the appeal process and improve your chances of getting disability benefits.
