Social Security Disability Benefits Just Got a Lot Harder!

In the past treating physician give more weight than other providers for claimants. Including opinions of physicians hired by SSA for consultative examinations.

In fact, SSA provided more weight to the treating physician’s opinion. Because physician has a personal longtime relationship with the claimant. It will be the best source to issue an opinion as for the claimant’s limitations. Yet it seems logical to assume a treating physician will know about their patient. Then an SSA medical provider.

I hope these tips help you with your Social Security Disability appeal case.

An Attorney withdraws from a social security disability case from representing a claimant at any time. The Attorney must submit an appeal request to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).

Getting the Court’s Permission to Withdraw an SSD case

An Attorney withdraws from a social security disability case from representing a claimant at any time.  The Attorney must submit an appeal request to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR).  In fact, if the withdrawal is mandatory. Then the attorney must first seek and get the court’s permission. But, before ending representation in the middle of a case.

As a result, the court will understand the dilemma of an attorney. When requiring or permitting withdrawal for a Social Security Disability (SSD) case. Yet, the court may not grant permission to immediately withdraw.

  • The facts giving will increase the withdrawal request are in dispute, or
  • withdrawal would be a matter of prejudice for the client’s ability to litigate the case.

The court can hold an evidentiary hearing on the disputed issues under any circumstances. Before making a ruling on the SSD Attorney’s withdrawal request. Yet, in most situations, the withdrawal request get granted. The court will give the client reasonable time to find another SSD Attorney.

SSD attorney has received court permissions to withdraw from representing an SSD client. Then the attorney must return all the client’s property in his or her possession. Including refunding any unused or unearned prepaid fees or retainers to the client. The SSD attorney must assist with the client’s new attorney and must hand the client’s file over as directed on time.

An SSD attorney who has withdrawn from representing an SSD client. Must continue a professional obligation to maintain the confidentiality of attorney-client-relationship.

How to get your Social Security Disability Appeal Case Reviewed for a Decision

how to get your social security disability appeal case reviewed for a decision

how to get your social security disability appeal case reviewed for a decision. The eBook “The Practical Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits” will help you get your SSD appeal case reviewed for a decision.

So many Social Security Disability (SSD) claimants have been waiting for a long time. For their SSD appeal scheduled court hearing. The article will not mention anything in the eBook. On how to get your Social Security Disability Appeal case reviewed for a decision.

People who have an attorney assume he or she is doing everything in their power to get your SSD claim approved. But that’s not the case for every some SSD attorneys. Because they do not follow the five levels of the SSD process. I wrote the eBook called “The Practical Guide to Social Security Disability Benefits.” With the subtitle of “Learn How to Secure Your Disability with or without using an attorney.”

This eBook will help you fight your own SSD appeal case. Or make sure your attorney is following protocol of the entire SS process. It will help you with your SSD Initial Claim, Request for Reconsideration, and Appeal case. To get your SSD claim reviewed for a decision.

Some attorneys file your SSD appeal and wait for a scheduled court date hearing. In reality, your Attorney is not doing anything to get your appeal case reviewed for a decision. For example, your attorney can tell you what medical documents and test results you will need. To prove your disability. Yet I do not know why attorneys wait until the SSD Appeal scheduled court date hearing. Because they are looking for the $6,000 cap on your back pay, Or lazy, or do not care about his or her clients.

Attorneys Consulting with their Clients

Experienced attorneys do not consultant with their clients. What type of medical documents and test result they will need to prove their disability case. Many attorneys do not meet with their clients in person until the day of the court hearing. Then they only meet with you for 15 to 30 minutes to talk with you about SSD appeal case before the court hearing. What makes some attorneys unprepared to argue your SSD appeal case? In front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).

My Goal in writing this eBook is to help people with their SSD case. Instead of waiting years for a decision on their SSD claim. Currently, I am helping a woman with her appeal. She hired an attorney for her SSD Appeal case in May 2016. Her attorney did nothing to get her SSD appeal case approved without a court date hearing.

Then her friend referred her to my eBook and website. So she said paying $19.99 for the eBook is not a bad price and bought my eBook. She started talking to me through email and by telephone about her case and impairments. I informed her to get all her medical documents and test results. On each doctor, specialists, emergency room, and nurse practitioner visit. I even told her about one test to take and what letters to write to get her SSD appeal case reviewed for a decision. That I will not mention in this article. Because all the information is in the eBook.

She was very blessed because her attorney gave her the green light to help fight her own SSD appeal case. Because a lot of attorneys will not allow you to fight your own SSD appeal case.

So she started gathering her updated medical documents and test results. To fax to her local Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). Within two months she received a letter stating her SSD appeal case is being reviewed for a decision. She did all the work to get her SSD claim approved. So, her attorney lied to her that nothing they can do to get her SSD claim approved without a court date hearing. But she still has to pay 25% to her back pay to her attorney for doing nothing. At least she did not have to wait years to get a decision on her SSD case. So, her attorney lied and said nothing they can do to get her SSD claim approved without a court date hearing.

I provided all the information and steps how to fight your own SSD case in the eBook. Now it is up to you to make a decision to wait years or start fighting for your SSD case with or without an attorney. To get it reviewed for a decision.

Call the ODAR Office or Social Security Office if your attorney is not following the SSD five levels. To ask them what can you do about the situation.

Social Security Disability Medical Documents

social security disability medical documents

Social Security Disability Medical Documents is evidence for determination. Under both SSD and SSI programs. Each person who files a disability claim is responsible. For providing all medical records and test results. To the Social Security Disability Office or ODAR Office.

Make sure your attorney submit all of your Social Security Disability(SSD) medical documents for your appeal case. To the ODAR Office. If you received Form HA-L56 (05-2011) in the mail. From the ODAR Office. Then your case is being reviewed for updated medical records.  For a decision on your claim. Inform your attorney to submit all your SSD updated medical records and Form HA-L56 (05-2011). To the ODAR Office. If your attorney tells you everybody gets Form HA-L56 (05-2011). So don’t worry about. DO NOT ACCEPT NO FOR AN ANSWER.

Request for SSD updated Medical Documents

If your attorney refuses to submit your updated medical documents and Form HA-L56 (05-2011). To the ODAR Office. Then submit the updated medical documents along with Form HA-L56 (05-2011). To the ODAR office yourself. Remember you hired the attorney to do a great job for your SSD appeal case.

If feel your Attorney is not trying to get your SSD case approved. In a timely manner. Then get the green light from your attorney to help fight your own SSD Appeal case.

Also, after your attorney file your SSD appeal application.  Then have your attorney to file a Request for Reconsideration of your SSD claim. By completing Form SSA-561-U2 (12-2016) uf (12-2016). When your SSD claim initial application gets denied. That’s when your attorney can file a Request for Reconsideration.  Also, file your SSD appeal application on your behalf. For the Social Security Administration to reconsider. Its decision on your SSD claim. But still, file your SSD appeal application. Because you only have 60 days to do so.

Skipping SSD Request for Reconsideration Level

Some attorneys skip the Social Security Disability’s Request for Reconsideration level. Instead, attorneys file an SSD appeal.  Then wait for an SSD scheduled court date hearing. The average wait time for an SSD scheduled court date hearing is 2 to 3 years or more. This is why you should make sure your attorney is following all five levels of the SSD process below.

Level 1 – Initial disability claim

Request for Reconsideration Level 2 –

Level 3 – Request for an Administrative Law Judge Hearing

Request for an Appeals Council Review Level 4 

Level 5 – Federal District Court

So before you hire an Attorney for your SSD Appeal case. Make sure he or she will follow all five levels. Of the SSD process above. Ask the attorney to explain how they handle their Social Security Disability Appeal cases. Ask he or her do they continue to work on SSD Appeal cases. While waiting for an SSD scheduled court date hearing. To get an SSD Appeal case approved. Without a scheduled court date hearing.

Write down a list of interview questions to ask an SSD attorney. Before hiring him or her.  For example, ask the attorney what is their SSD Appeal cases. Win and losses ratio.  Inform the attorney you would like to help fight your own SSD Appeal Case.  That way you can make a decision to hire the attorney or not.

How to Prepare for a Social Security Disability (SSD) Review? Part 1

How to Prepare for a Social Security Disability (SSD) Review

How can I prepare for a Social Security Disability (SSD) Review? It is very hard to actually prepare in advance for a continuing disability review (CDR). Complete the form the SSA sends you either form SSA-455 or Form SSA-454. If the agency needs additional information, they will ask for it.

How to Prepare for a Social Security Disability (SSD) Review?

Know what to expect when filling out the forms properly are the only way you can prepare. Learn how to prepare for a Social Security Disability (SSD) review.

Social Security Disability will review your claim every few years. It will depend on the severity of your disability. The possibility your medical condition will improve. The Social Security Administration (SSA) will contact you when is time for a review.

That way SSA can decide to continue your SSD or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

It is difficult to prepare in advance for a Continuing Disability Review (CDR). SSA make the decision to continue or stop disability benefits from medical records. Yet, there is another type of review called SSI redetermination. Where SSA will look for non-medical reasons to stop your benefits. Such as having too much income or assets.

CDR will be the best thing to make your review go well by continuing to see your doctor regularly. Also, fill out the Social Security review form properly.

Maintain Your Relationship with Your Doctor

If you have not seen your doctor in the last year, the SSA may doubt your disability is ongoing. Then SSD will pay for you to see their doctor to do the consultative exam. Their doctor will have no knowledge of your long-term medical history. The consultative exam may take 15 minutes to examine you. It will be in your best interest to have your own doctor’s records with symptoms and limitations.

To feel more safe about your upcoming disability review. Keep in mind that the relationship you have with your treating physician.

Your physician will be an important part on whether you will continue to get disability.
