Win Your SSD Claim
If your ability to earn a living is stopped by a disability, you deserve the benefits available from Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Unfortunately, only three out of 10 applicants for Social Security Disability benefits are approved when they first apply. For this reason, it’s important to have the guidance of an experienced Social Security Disability Insurance claims expert on your side.
The attorneys at the Kenton Koszdin Law Office have represented hundreds of people at Social Security administrative hearings. We can help you through the complex process of getting the benefits you so rightly deserve. Call us today at (800) 438-7734 for a cost-free consultation.
If you are applying for SSDI, the most important thing is that you provide a detailed and complete work and medical history for your disability examiner. It’s important to have the correct names, addresses, and phone numbers of work supervisors, physicians who treated you, and the facilities you were treated at. This paperwork establishes a timeline that backs up your injuries and treatment with what you were doing at the time.
It is also important to get written statements from your physicians, detailing and explaining your injuries and conditions, and how your health problems affected your ability to work. The decision of who receives Social Security Disability benefits is decided by a state sponsored disability examiner. This is why it’s important to give the specific details of your treatment and work history.
Winning Your Los Angeles Disability Case
Unfortunately, people applying for Social Security Disability benefits can face a five month waiting period before they get their benefits. This is why it’s recommended that you act quickly with an experienced attorney if you’re trying to claim benefits.
It is also a good idea to keep in contact with the disability examiner assigned to your case. Being actively involved in your case will help keep things moving and might even speed up the process. One of the biggest reasons for delays in disability cases is examiners waiting for medical records and doctor’s statements to arrive. You may even want to get your medical records from places where you were treated and deliver them to your examiner yourself.
What If My Application for Disability Insurance is Denied?
If your disability claim is denied, you have the right to appeal and ask for a different examiner. If a second examiner again denies your disability claim, your next step should be to request a disability hearing.
