The Social Security Disability Process
As soon as it becomes apparent that you can no longer work due to disability, one of your first steps will be to file an application for Social Security Disability (SSD). You'll be required to complete a range of forms and provide medical documentation to prove that you have a disability and that it truly prevents you from working.
The unfortunate truth is that the majority of Social Security Disability claims (as well as Supplemental Security Income claims) will initially be denied — even legitimate claims. While this can be disheartening for those who truly need the help, it is important not to give up hope. You are entitled to an appeal.
If Your SSD/SSI Application Has Been Denied
When your SSD/SSI application has been denied, it is time to get an attorney involved. Individuals who work with an experienced and qualified lawyer on their SSD/SSI appeal have a much greater chance of success than those who go it alone. Those who do not use an attorney during the appeals process simply do not understand what laws may be applicable to them and how to use the law to their benefit.
