A majority of Social Security Disability cases are denied during the initial claim. After being denied, cases that are appealed usually go before an administrative law judge to determine if one should receive benefits. If someone has been denied a Social Security claim, they may want (or need) to employ the services of a Social Security Disability advocate. Working with an advocate or a lawyer can assist them in the following ways:
• Social security advocates and attorneys know what to look for in your claim that can help or hinder your case. These facts may not only help you win benefits but may also help you get the maximum you are eligible to collect.
• It’s not enough to have a doctor state that you are disabled. Social Security administrators are looking for specific language and types of tests that explain your medical condition before approving your claim. An advocate or attorney can advise you of these tests before the hearing.
• Have you appeared before a judge or participated in an appeals hearing? Most people have not. Your advocate or attorney will be there with you and will guide you through the complicated process. Your attorney will also prepare witnesses that will testify on your behalf and question or challenge other witnesses at the hearings.
