Choosing the right Social Security Disability Attorney or Advocate: Part 1

Social Security Disability Attorney

There are a growing number of Lawyers who are stepping up and providing early stage help for Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Disability (SSI) initial claim..

Applying for Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) can be challenging difficult process. Today there are more than 1.3 million people in the queue, waiting to get approved for their SSDI or SSI. Many claimants do not know the disability process.  Have to wait an average 2 to 4 years for a court hearing.

Although some SSDI/SSI cases are clear-cut. Having unclear answers or incomplete details.  May move slow through the disability process. By the same token, a large number of disability applications get denied for the very same reasons. That’s when claimants seek legal representation. When choosing a good SSD Attorney or a self-help book it can help you navigate through the system faster. Always remember to look before you leap into hiring a Lawyer.

Get Help Early

Steps to successfully apply for Social Security disability

Feb 1, 2016 Roughly one-third of applications for Social Security disability benefits are ultimately approved. How to make sure yours is among them.

Social Security Disability

How many questions can you expect to ask, and how should you answer the Judge’s questions at a disability hearing.  Sometimes the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) may not ask a claimant any questions, however, other times a Judge may ask you several questions.  Most disability appeal court hearings normally last under an hour and some can be very short as 15 minutes, so you can count on having no questions to answer for an extended time period.

The outlook of answering an Administrative Law Judge’s questions at a disability appeal hearing can be difficult even though you prepared well for it, get ready for the unexpected. There are important guidelines you can follow that will make the process smoother and increase you chance of getting approved for your Social Security Disability Claim.

Social Security Disability Questions and Answers

This is hard to believe but one of the most common mistakes a disability claimant makes during the hearing, especially when failing to answer the question asked by the Administrative Law Judge.  Try to avoid this by paying attention to what the Judge is asking you a specifically question then answers them in a sentence of two.  During the SSD appeal court hearing, it will be very helpful to take notes just in case you have to ask the Judge to restate or explain the question for you.

Don’t Ramble or Go Off the Subject when Answering a Question

The hearing process is a nerve-wracking experience for most claimants.  Many of us are under pressure and too prone to ramble on, it is important to prepare to provide a brief answer to the Administrative Law Judge’s questions.  This usually happens when Claimant answers questions with long-winded explanations that do not answer questions from Administrative Law Judge’s question, it may cause the Judge to stop listening and probably miss important information statements you made which will make him or her may become interrupted and irritated with you.

Social Security Disability Advocate Part 2

However, your Social Security Disability Advocate can help you file a Request for Reconsideration. He or she can represent you at your appeal hearing before an Administration Law Judge if they have the experience to do so.

However, your Social Security Disability Advocate can help you file a Request for Reconsideration.  He or she can represent you at your appeal hearing before an Administration Law Judge if they have the experience to do so.  Be sure to ask the Social Security Disability Advocate will they represent you in court first.  If your Social Security Disability Income appeal case is denied then your Disability Advocate can represent you before the Appeal Council Review if necessary or help with your case before a Federal Court hearing.

When you request the Appeal Council to review the Administrative Law Judge decision, they will decide if it is necessary to review your case or not to review your case.  It is good to get new relevant medical documents to submit to the Appeal Council Review.

A Disability Advocate may be a Social Security Disability lawyer or simply a professional who helps people with their disability initial claims and appeal case.  However, if your Disability Advocate is an attorney, then he or she may represent you in your Federal Court proceedings.

There are no laws requiring you to utilize a Disability Advocate during the appeal process, but you will find it to your advantage.  By having a Disability Advocate will increase your chances of having your claim accepted on time when you have a competent representation.

Please keep this in mind a Disability Advocate will not charge any out of pocket money.  The Disability Advocate is paid 25% or $6,000 maximum of any Social Security Disability back pay which is issued before you get your back pay money.  So do the math a self-help digital eBook will cost $19.99 and up which is probably better because you can fight your own Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income initial claim or appeal case.  Also, purchasing a Social Security Disability self-help eBook will save you money in the long run too.
