Application Requirements for Disability
There are several benefits to having an attorney help you with your initial application, including the likelihood of less errors being made, leading to an increased chance of your receiving disability benefits. In fact, when you look at what the Social Security Administration is going to demand of you at this stage, it's understandable why someone might prefer to have a full-service disability law firm handle the many steps and help guide you through the application:
- Social Security will ask for the date you became disabled. The answer given to this question is critical!
Your disability lawyer at Keller & Keller will work with you to select a date which maximizes your potential recovery and the chance of a fully favorable determination.
- Social Security will ask you to identify your impairments and disabilities.
One of our main goals is to work closely with you to make sure your impairments and conditions are communicated to Social Security using the proper medical terminology, ensuring they request the appropriate tests and examinations.
There will be a lot of paperwork, and we handle all of it for you. We work directly with the agency to ensure they have a complete and accurate list of your medical providers and doctors. This helps avoid any potential delays caused by Social Security requesting irrelevant, or unrelated records.
- Social Security will examine EVERYTHING.
Having helped 1,000's of clients obtain their benefits, and we know the importance of being thorough. We will advise you about medical consultations, imaging, or testing which can help you develop medical evidence to provide official proof of your impairments.
- It's very likely you will be denied the first time, and that means there will be important appeal deadlines which you MUST meet.
We have procedures and a sophisticated case management system in place to ensure appeals are filed in a timely fashion so that your claim is not delayed by a missed deadline.
