Since the beginning of VAP has provided legal assistance to more than 1,300 veterans.  Not to mention VAP recovered approximately $5.3 million retroactive disability benefits for veterans.  Moreover, they have given over two million in free legal services for veterans.  Yet, VAP has resources of more than 450 trained pro bono attorneys.  Attorneys are from over 60 law firms and corporations.  But Veterans Assistance Project provides Continuing Legal Education (CLE) for their volunteer attorneys.

In addition, I had the opportunity to speak to Mr. Kent Eiler who is the Direct of the Veterans Assistance Project.  As a result Mr. Kent Eiler was very nice and caring about veterans getting approved for SSDI benefits.  He is always looking for new information to help veterans with their disability claims.  Mr. Kent Eiler even brought my book “The Practical Guide to Social Security Benefits” for additional information about applying for SSDI benefits.

Ten tips for winning your Social Security Disability case in federal court

ten tips winning your social security disability in federal court

Ten tips winning your Social Security Disability in federal court. For many disability non-attorneys and attorney, if an application is denied. By an Administrative Law Judge and the Appeals Council does not grant review, then the SSD claim is dead. It should not be the case because the best way to represent a client in federal court appeals must be part of the overall strategy.

The National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representative Conference (NOSSCR) in San Francisco.  During the conference, each presenter gave excellent advice how to be successful in Federal District Court.  Below are the ten tips winning your Social Security Disability in Federal District Court.

  1. Develop a concept of the case at your earliest opportunity.  Yet, every Judge is looking at a case from the first time applied for SSD benefits.  The Judge wants to know why the claimant cannot work.  When filling out Federal District Court forms be specific answering questions about daily activities.  However, your answers should pertain to the theory of the case.
  2. Get all the medical and test records.  It will make the Administrative Law Judge’s (ALJ) job easier.  If the case goes to Federal District Court, you want the medical records to specify your impairment.
  3. Submit a written brief to the Administrative Law Judge highlight the important evidence, clarify the issues, and present your theory of the case.  You may win your SSD claim in front of the ALJ whether than going to Federal District Court.
  4. Deal with unfavorable facts early.  If there are few medical treatment records due to the claimant not having medical insurance and unable go to the doctor?  Make sure you inform the ALJ in the record. That way the Federal Judge does not have to guess you have no medical treatment records.  The ALJ’s cannot say a claimant is not severely disabled due to the lack of medical treatment records.
  5. Get third-party testimony. Claimants can have friends, relatives, as a witness to attend the hearing.  Or submit a letter describing the claimant’s disability impairments. Third party testimony is helpful in cases dealing with mental impairments or claimants pain level.
  6. Enter into a voluntary dismissal with government counsel for remand.  If your case can benefit from remand then send a brief letter to the Office of General Counsel.  Also, state why you think they should agree to a remand.  (This advice was given at the NOSSCR, it is not clear how often it works)
  7. Know the law clerk and court.  Try to find out as much information you can about the federal judge who assigned to your case in district court.  If the same judge decided your Social Security Disability case before then you can give a detailed explanation of the consecutive evaluation in your brief.
  8. Write a detail comprehensive brief.  Use plain language for the record define-terms.  Even though the judges and law clerks can retrieve legal resources and medical dictionaries.  It is helpful for you to define the medical term in a sentence.
  9. Creditability.  Follow all the court rules and be honest.  Do not overstate.
  10.  File a reply brief.  Several law clerks will read the reply briefs to find the real issues in a case.  At the hearing you want to persuade the judge to decide in your favor; the reply brief gives you an opportunity to restate your position.

Work Hard, Be Humble, And Respectful When Fighting For Your Social Security Benefits

be humble respectful when fighting for your social security benefits

Be humble, respectful when fighting for your Social Security Disability Benefits.  Always keep on top of your claim. When you send documents to the Social Security have the documents in before the deadline, mail it certified/return receipt or fax it.  Do not assume regular mail will arrive at the Social Security in a timely manner. Having a fax receipt or certified/return receipt is proof you sent the documents.  However, call and check the status of your claim to make sure it does not fall through the cracks.
Here is some advice the Social Security Administration (SSA) employees sometimes provide wrong information to the public. SSA employees do not mean to get bad information about SSDI but it does happen.  Always remember this “Trust, but verify.”

The first thing you should to do is work hard, be humble, respectful when fighting for your Social Security Disability Benefits.  Having a bad attitude, smart mouth, not getting medical documents, research your medical condition.  No name calling to offend the Social Security Disability Representative because it is not going to get you anywhere.  But your case in a pile.  When someone who is willing to help you with your Social Security Disability (SSD) case.  Do have a million things to do whether than working hard on your case.

I personally know what attorneys go through with their Social Security Disability clients.  For example, the clients assume the attorney does all the work for them.  Meanwhile, the client does nothing to help their own SSD case.  Instead of sitting around it is your job to collect medical evidence to prove your case too.  It is your responsibility to keep all surgery discharge documents, doctor office visits, hospital documents, and test results etc. for your SSD case.  Also, any letters your attorney ask to write on your behalf for your case.

However, having a bad attitude when you speaking or writing to Social Security or The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).  When speaking to anyone about your SSD case be nice, polite, and do not express your real bad feelings.  Expressing your real feelings can come out mean and disrespectful.  I know you are stress, mad, having a mental breakdown, and want to get approved right now.  My mother used to tell me “you can catch more flies with honey.”  What that means is being nice for things you want.  So if you do not have any more honey in your body, go to the Dollar Tree and buy some for a $1.00.  Having a bad attitude is not going to get you anywhere.  But having a good positive attitude is going to get you the information you need to get approved.

I would like to tell you a short story about a person who fought their case for 8 years.  So out of the 8 years, this person got denied 2 times, but it he had a good attitude.  He kept fighting until approved for SSD Benefits.  It might have taken him 8 years but it paid off for working hard, being humble, and respectful to people,  Now he has learned the SSD process throughout the 8 years of trying to get approved.  But it finally paid off of getting approved.

But good behavior will give you an opportunity to increase your chances of getting approved the first time around.  If you like the person above in the story fighting for his SSD Case.  It is so time-consuming when fighting your case, but you must make take time to work on your own case.  For instance, set aside some time each day to work on your case.  You can research your disability in google, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic to print out and give to your attorney or to Social Security Disability for evidence.  Also, go to the Social Security Disability Blue Listing for your impairment or impairments at https://www.ssa.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/AdultListings.htm

On more thing is to write a statement letter describing your disability.  In the statement, the letter includes from the time you get up in the morning from the time you go to bed.  Informed SSD who does your grocery shopping, wash clothes, housekeeping, prepare your meals, take you to doctor visits, bath and dress you etc.  Let Social Security Disability aware of all of your struggles.

Why Social Security Disability Sends You to See Their Doctor?

why social security disability sends you to see their doctor

Why Social Security Disability sends you to see their doctor. When you first apply for disability, you may receive a letter to go to a medical exam. Consultative Examinations are sometimes required by the Social Security Administration due to the claimant either has not received medical treatment for their condition recently. Within the past 60 days has no or not enough medical records that support a finding of disability.

Why Social Security Disability sends you to see their doctor?  It depends on your disabling medical condition or conditions.  The Social Security Disability (SSD) examiners normally send you to a consultative examination (CE).  If your medical records are inadequate to determine your disability under the Social Security Disability guidelines.

The disability examiner may try to get additional information from your medical sources.  The examiner will contact your medical sources again for the information. Or schedule a consultative examination to see one of their doctors.  However, SSD like to use your personal doctor medical treatment sources for the CE.  If he or she qualified. Equipped to perform a CE for an authorized fee.

But Social Security rules given to the disability examiner.  To have the option to use an independent medical source for the CE or diagnostic test if:

  1. Your doctor does not want to perform the Consultative Examination;
  2. If the doctor does not have the equipment to perform Consultative Examination.  To provide the information disability determination needed;
  3. You decide to go to a different doctor and have a good reason for doing so;
  4. Your doctor is not qualified source for medical information;

Yet very few consultative medical exams were ever performed by a claimant’s own doctor.  Usually, claimants will go to exams conducted by Social Security Disability contracted doctors.  Whom they’ve never met.

However, if the disability examiner decides that they need more medical information.  You make have to go to a consultative examination with a neurologist, physician, ophthalmologist, psychiatrist, psychologist, etc.

The doctor who performs the CE may not specialize in the medical field.  That deals with your medical condition.  For example, you may have back pain, but the consultative examination doctor may specialize in allergist.  It occurs when the SSD Examiner needs additional information about the limitation of a physical problem. Social Security sends you to whoever is available in your area to conduct the exam.

Many individuals who have mental illness see someone who specializes in mental conditions.  Yet, it means a psychiatrist should be able to do a full psychiatric exam. But it usually means seeing a psychologist that administered a memory test, IQ test or mental status exam.

Make sure the disability examiners have plenty of general medical information with clarification of your medical records.

Also, if the disability examiners have plenty of general medical information.  But need some clarification of the medical records.  Or an additional expert evaluation of an individual’s medical condition. For limitations that’s when an examiner send you to a specialist for clarification.  Therefore, many disability claimants receive thorough medical evaluations.  By doctors who specialize in their medical condition.  This only happens when the Disability Examiner is unable to determine your limitations through regular medical treatment records.

Yet, the disability examiner sends you to general consultative examinations performed the CE with a specialist.  These consultative examinations give the disability examiner a general status of your disabling medical condition.  However, many consultative examinations do not lead to approval for SSD benefits.  Unless something like intelligence quotient (IQ) testing.  Or memory testing to evaluate mental functioning because it is not subjective by nature.

After completing the testing scores are determined by the severity of their medical conditions.  Other evaluation of physical conditions, such as back pain, can be far more subjective.

Make sure you have all medical records, test results,  a thorough statement about disability limitations from your doctor.  Letters from family and friends explaining your disability limitations to avoid going to a consultative examination.

When You Receive a Notice Remand in the Mail from the Social Security Administration (SSA) Appeals Council It Could Be Good News

when you receive a notice remand in the mail from the social security administration (ssa) appeals council it could be good news

When you receive a Notice Remand in the mail from the Social Security Administration (SSA) Appeals Council it could be good news. Because of the Appeals Council (AC) can remand a case for a second Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing. An ALJ may issue a recommended decision. Read Hearings Appeals and Litigation Law (HALLEX) manual I-2-8-15. Also, the AC can have jurisdiction of the ALJ’s decision on its own motion of authority within 60 days of the date of the ALJ’s decision. Read 20 CFR 404.969 and 416.1469, and HALLEX I-3-6-1.

When you receive a Notice Remand in the mail from the Social Security Administration (SSA) Appeals Council it could be good news.  Because many remanded cases awarded at the second hearing.  After you filed an appeal with the Social Security Administration (SSA) Appeals Council.  This means the Appeals Council has transferred your Social Security Disability claim back to the SSA Hearing office for another ALJ hearing.

When you receive a Notice Remand in the mail from the Social Security Administration (SSA) Appeals Council it can be good news

If the Appeals Council finds the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearing decision contains an error of law.  Or is not supported by the substantial weight of medical evidence.  Then the Appeals Council will decide to remand your Social Security Disability claim.  Back to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).  Yet, having new submitted medical evidence.  Social Security Disability claims may remand back to the ALJ for further actions it requires.  You can find the Rules on Appeals Council Remand in 20 C.F.R. § 404.977.

A remanded hearing scheduled by the Hearing office.  Can take place within four to six months to receive a Notice of Remand issued.  The Hearing office and ALJ’s can take necessary action outlined by the Appeals Council.  For example, the Appeals Council can request the Claimant to go to a Consultative Examination appointment.  Scheduled and paid by SSA.  The SSD claim has remanded is frequently scheduled with the previous ALJ.

After receiving a Notice of Remand.  It’s very encouraging because many remanded cases awarded at the second hearing.  Yet having your claim remanded does not mean you will get a favorable decision this time around.

However, after the hearing, the ALJ will issue a new decision for your case.  Normally it takes one to three months after the hearing for a decision.  When you receive a favorable decision.  It means you are eligible to receive benefits.  But if you get denied. Then you have the option to file another appeal with the Appeals Council or file a new claim.

There is no “automatic” way to get approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits: Part 1

There is no “automatic” way to get approved for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income Benefits

There is no “automatic” way to get approved for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income Benefits. Most disability claims take some time to get approval. But there are some situations that will allow a quick approval for SSD or SSI disability benefits.

There is no “automatic” way to get approved for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.  Some disability claims get approved quickly than others.  Yet, Social Security Administration uses the same medical disability process to evaluate all disability claims.

There is no “automatic” way to get approved for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income Benefits

However, most disability claims take some time to get approval.  But there are some situations will allow a quick approval for SSD or SSI disability benefits.  For instance, if a person who files a disability claim on the basis of a terminal illness. Then Social Security Disability will expedite the evaluation process.  Yet, in most cases, terminal illness disability claims process in thirty days or less.

But theses disability claims must have medical evidence to support an individual terminal illness.  Which means Social Security must have medical evidence to support the disability claimant’s allegation of terminal illness.  Although disability claims involve a terminal illness with an automatic approval for SSD or SSI disability programs have.

There are still a few disability claims that can receive an approval for disability benefits quickly.  If they equally meet the criteria of a Social Security Disability Blue Book impairment listing.  The Social Security Disability Examiners will use the disability blue book listing to evaluate medical evidence for their determination.

Yet, if a person has a severe medical condition that meets the severity requirements of an impairment blue book listing.  Then they will approve medically for SSD or SSI disability.  In order to be “medically approved” all disability applicants must meet the non-disability requirements of SSI and Social Security disability.  However, for the greatest part, involves a review of income and particularity in SSI case assets as well.
