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

Unfortunately, if the Administrative Law Judge believes you are overstating your symptoms, you will lose your credibility and if the Judge does not believe you then you will most likely lose your claim for stance, if the Administrative Law Judge ask you to rate your pain on a scale one to ten on an everyday average, it would not be a good idea to answer your daily pain is at a ten.  State your daily pain is five, six, or even seven is more believable than 10.  Now if your pain escalates at times then should state at times my pain level goes up to a nine or ten, then provide an explanation as to what is your worse symptoms like grocery shopping, sitting too long, cleaning, walking upstairs, etc. When explaining you symptoms avoid phrases like constantly, every day, all the time, unless it is absolutely accurate.

Having multiple impairments, be careful about accuracy in your descriptions for each symptom.  If you inform the Judge that all of your impairments are extremely severe and painful this can compromise your reliability of truly severe impairments diagnoses rely solely or partly on self-reported pain levels.

Having Representation at Your Hearing

Having an experienced disability lawyer or non-attorney representative can help you to answer the questions to help support your disability claim than possibly undermine it.  A Social Security Disability advocate can help with pre-hearing preparation will help you avoid answering the judge’s question in a way that will not hurt your case and any fears you have.  However, a disability representative can answer many of the Administrative Law Judge’s questions that come up at a disability hearing.

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.

The Definition of Social Security Disability Income Benefits and Supplemental Security Income Benefits

I won my SSDI Case.

I won my SSDI Case.

Social Security Disability is for people who is unable to work due to their disability. Why are people too scare to talk about this topic, and think SSDI/SSI is illegal? Social Security Disability Insurance you must pay FICA taxes for a certain number of years to the Social Security Administration general for at least five to ten years, and fulfill certain citizenship or lawful residency requirements but foreign workers may qualify for SSDI. Supplemental Security Income is for people who are age 65 or older, blind; or disabled, limited income, limited resources, and the United States citizen or National, or in one of the certain categories.

If you ever become disable then you will think back on all the articles I have written and research to make applying or appeal a claim easier for you. After nine months of research, I got my appeal reviewed and onto a Decision Writer’s desk to get a decision. Thanks to my research I got approved without a scheduled court date hearing nor an Attorney.

I had people unfollow me on twitter, and block me on Facebook because they are not educated on Social Security Disability Benefits or Supplemental Security Income Benefits. This is why I decided to write this article for people read and have a better understanding of the SSD and SSI Benefits. People tend to judge people by a book cover instead of opening up the book to read the entire book. So next time an SSD/SSI posting is forward to you, please take the time to read the entire article before having an opinion about the topic.

Please remember this you can be in the same boat at any given time, so have some sympathy for other people who are struggling to get their SSD/SSI approved. No one chooses to be on disability because it barely pays for all of your monthly bills.
