What Does The SSD Process Look Like?
At first, it might seem confusing, but it is imperative that you prepare yourself for success.
- Talk to a medical professional: To gain a clear understanding of your condition and any limitations, you should talk to a doctor. It is wise to get the most documentation possible as you will need to show the Social Security Administration (SSA) that you are eligible to receive benefits.
- File the initial application: Here, again, you can benefit from the knowledge of an experienced attorney. From accurately filling out the paperwork to ensuring that all deadlines are met, a lawyer can provide valuable insight and guidance.
- Appeal a denial: Unfortunately, many initial applications are denied. Fortunately, however, there is a process set up to appeal these decisions. From a request for reconsideration to requesting a hearing, a skilled attorney can provide the representation you need.
