Acquiring social security disability benefits is not an easy process. Going through the Social Security Administration (SSA) requires time, patience and diligence. Applicants must have all of the necessary documents filled out, and medical and non-medical evidence to help prove their case to the Social Security Administration.
Compiling, organizing and obtaining all of the necessary paperwork in itself, can be very overwhelming. And when applicants fail to meet pressing deadlines and are unaware of their responsibilities, their case can negatively be affected. This is why hiring an experienced social security disability attorney can help you to secure the SSD benefits you may deserve.
We asked attorney David Daggett some of the most commonly asked questions on social security disability law and below are his answers:
- What key evidence is required when submitting a disability claim to the Social Security Administration?
The key evidence is the ongoing medical treatment, medical bills and any doctor opinions that will help prove and substantiate your inability to perform your work duties.
- How can an applicant make their social security disability case stronger?
Continue with your regular medical care and treatment with your doctors and get an opinion from your treating physician that proves your inability to perform the work that you have been doing for years.
- What determines the amount of social security disability income the applicant receives? If this amount is low, what can the applicant do to request a higher payment?
This social security administration has a formula they use to calculate your benefit based on the amount of time you have worked throughout your lifetime and the amount of income you have earned. You cannot request a higher payment.
- In what stage of the social security disability process is it best to hire an attorney?
Your best bet is to hire an attorney from the start so that you get the best guidance from the application process all the way through the hearing and appeals process if necessary. By hiring an attorney they can make sure your application is filled out correctly, filed properly, and ushered through the system to get the quickest and best result.
