Claiming Social Security Disability
How to Get SSI & Social Security Disability: An Insider's Step by Step Guide
by Mike Davis

How to Get SSI & Social Security Disability - gives readers the focus and perspective of an experienced disability examiner, and therefore has great value to people who file Social Security disability claims. Claimants must gather copious amounts of evidence and deal effectively with disability examiners and doctors to win their cases. The book helps them do this. The book doesn't deal with all the legal issues that have change because they're not what a case hinges on. What counts is the medical evidence and forms.

The book's print is large and clear. The style is appealing. Though published in 2000, the book is far from out of date. It has the merit which is lacking in Social Security literature - Mr. Davis clearly and simply depicts how to prove your case.

Historically, over half of the claims filed with the social security administration for disability are denied during the first two stages of the process. This means it is likely that you will have to argue your claim in front of an administrative law judge in order to be awarded your disability.

Because there is a backlog of claims already in the Social Security administration's files, and the fact that most claims are denied, it takes some information and strategy to be effective when filing for disability.

First, try to earn the support of your doctor. If you have medical statements that explained how your disability stops you from working, in detail, these will only strengthen your claim when filing for disability. Also, your records should be resent, and updated regularly to reflect your disability.

When the disability examiner contacts you, respond as soon as possible. It pays to be punctual, and it also demonstrates you are serious about your claim. Be aware of the deadlines involved with your claims, and work well within them.

If you're overburdened, it's time to seek the advice of a disability lawyer. These are lawyers who specialize in helping people file and when their disability claims. If you're not sure whether or not you need a disability lawyer, it probably means you do. They will be able to help you gain records about the case Social Security Administration has against you, and evaluate the proper course of action.

In conclusion, I have given you several tips you should consider when filing for disability claims. Consider this information when you make your claim, to increase the chances of it being accepted.
