Overview of the Social Security Disability Process
Our firm can guide you through each of the steps below to ensure that you
have the best possible chance of obtaining the SSD benefits that you need.
- The SSD Application Process at a Glance:
Retain an Attorney - From the very start, it is in your best interests to have a knowledgeable
SSD lawyer by your side. Your attorney will know the law and your rights.
He or she will be able to guide you as you apply for benefits and will
be able to represent you in an appeal should your initial claim be denied.
Complete Paperwork & File Claim - Filing for Social Security Disability involves a lot of paperwork. The
SSA requires forms that include and aren't limited to: HA-4631,
Claimant's Recent Medical Treatment; HA-4632,
Claimant's Medications; HA-4633,
Claimant's Work Background; copy of your most recent W-2 Form or, if you are self-employed, your
federal tax return for the past year
Follow Up on the Status of Your Claim - While your claim is being processed, do not contact the SSA asking for
a status update, because your application is not actually processed by
the SSA. It is processed by the Disability Determination Services (DDS).
You may be able to speak with the disability claims examiner to find out
the status of your claim.
Appeal Your Claim (if Denied) - Between 60% and 70% of SSD claims are initially denied; however, about
half of the claims that are appealed result in approval! Don't give
up if your claim is denied the first time around. With help from a Social
Security Disability lawyer, you can file an appeal and have your case
reviewed in a hearing. You may still be able to have your denial reversed
and begin receiving SSD benefits.
