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 Though published in 2000, the book is far from out of date.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.

When Social Security denies your application for disability or SSI benefits you have 60 days to file an appeal. In most states you will first file for reconsideration and your State's Disability Determination Service will re-evaluate your case. If this reconsideration is denied again you will have another 60 days to request a hearing before an administrative law judge.

Hearings are held in Social Security's Office of Hearings and Appeals. When this office schedules a hearing for you they will set up a time for you to appear before an administrative law judge to argue your case. At this hearing you will be able to present any new medical evidence you have to support your claim. You may also bring witnesses to speak on your behalf. This could include an attorney or disability representative. You are not required to hire an attorney or representative; however, if you choose to have representation this individual will receive 25% of your back pay should you win.

Social Security: March Marches On: Social Security Reminders (Yankton Press & Dakotan)
Time goes by so quickly, it can be easy to forget important deadlines and even easier to let critical items fall to the nether regions of your to-do list. Whether you get to everything or not, time marches...


Instead of having an attorney represent you, bring other qualified individuals to speak on your behalf. This can include your doctor, social worker, and family members. Your family members know the most about your disability. They know how it affects you on a daily basis. This testimony could be extremely valuable if you rely on your family members for daily activities such as bathing, dressing, and using the facilities.

Organize your case before attending the hearing. You should know what you want to say and how you are going to say it. Don't be afraid to use notes or an outline. Present your case in a logical manner with witnesses and medical evidence to support your argument and you will be well on your way to winning your Social Security Disability or SSI appeal.
