It’s no secret just how difficult it can be to get an approval on a Social Security Disability benefit claim. In fact, the Social Security Administration estimates that more than 60 percent of initial claims receive a Social Security Disability Denial. Luckily though, this decision can go through an extensive appeals process in the hopes of having the judgment reversed and an approval on the claim issued.
An article from Social Work Helper discussed the steps of the appeals process and several tips that can help individuals better present their claim. The experts contend that presenting the correct records and descriptions of the disabling condition are crucial to winning an appeal and having a benefits claim approved. This can be achieved through the presentation of the proper medical and personal records. These records will supply officials with the specific details they need to determine a case’s eligibility for disability benefits, as well as how much the claimant should receive.
If a reconsideration of the case is unsuccessful, a hearing may be held before a judge in order to determine a case. When this occurs, experts agree that having a qualified attorney on your side is crucial to navigating the intricacies of the law regulating such claims.
