Websites are a dime a dozen and we caution you to be careful when choosing which ones to utilize.  There are many web sites out there that are very good.  We caution you to be careful of websites where the identity of the firm or author is hidden.  They are solely to generate clients.  They offer only enough information to confuse you or convince you that you need a lawyer.  Other sites are constructed by individuals who have never handled a Social Security Disability claim nor ever intend to.  They are marketing people who are looking to sell leads to lawyers. In fact, there are some websites out there using titles similar to mine don't be fooled.  Here you will find Social Security Disability information, answers and advice on how to apply, am i disabled, how to appeal and how to win SSD, SSDI, and SSI.

     I do not hide who I am on this site and I will try to answer any questions you may have but I will not pressure anyone to retain me as their lawyer.  My sincere hope is that the information in this disability guide is helpful to anyone seeking disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).  I will try to update the information in this site as often as possible including an almost daily blog.  In addition to the Blog on this site please visit my other Social Security disability Blog for more SSDI and SSI tips.  So be sure to bookmark this site for the latest news.  This is a free disability guide and will help with Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security claims.  Please note that it is my intention to provide accurate and up to date information on this site and I make great effort to do this. However, the information on this site is not guaranteed and no lawyer client relationship exist.  This site is not a substitute for consultation with a lawyer.

How to Use this site.  If you are new to the process of Social Security Disability I recommend you start be reading the disability process.  This page will give you an overview of how your claim is processed and what procedural steps you have to take.  To understand how SSA determines if you are disabled you should read the page "am I disabled?".  After you read this page you should follow the different links to get a better understanding of what it takes to prove your disability.  I also strongly suggest you read "how to win" and "key to SSDI and SSI".  There is a lot more information on this site but this should give you a good starting point to help your claim.

EXAMPLES OF WHY YOU SHOULD CONTINUE READING THIS SITE:

My first suggestion for you and when you are applying for your Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income Claim is to be knowledgeable about how the Social Security Administration will evaluate your claim.
     

     Whether you are represented by an attorney or not take it upon yourself to learn as much about the
Social Security disability process as you can.  You have already taken the initiative by researching on-line and reading this site.  I also recommend that you visit the Social Security Administration's web site.  It is a bit confusing but can be a great resource for your claim for benefits. 

     By having an understanding of
how Social Security decides your claim for benefits you will increase your chances of winning your benefits for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). 

My second suggestion is to get help.  

     If you choose to get your benefits without an attorney, this guide will help you learn the process used to determine if one is disabled.  This is not a complete site about Social Security and should not be considered legal advice.  You should also use the SSA's website in conjunction with this site.  This will increase your chances of giving your case the best chance to win your benefits.  Remember the law in these cases is confusing and convoluted.

     Statistics show that those claimants that are represented by an attorney are more likely to win their claim for benefits than those who are not.  In my opinion, the reason for this is because the lawyers that handle Social Security Disability claims have a better understanding of
how the Social Security Administration decides your case and they develop your case accordingly.

     Remember this web site is my attempt to give you the tools you need to
win your SSDI or SSI benefits with or without a lawyer.  If you decide you need a lawyer for your disability case or just want/need to ask some questions, feel free to contact me.  I also offer a free case evaluation for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income.  

This site is full of free information and practical advice on Social Security Disability.  If you study this site you can learn the following:  How to apply for Social Security DisabilityWhat is the process by which SSA determines if you are disabled.  How to win SSDI or SSI.  What are the GRID rules?  What you can expect and how to handle a Social Security Disability hearing.  What are the medical listing of impairments?  Do I need a lawyer for my disability claim.  The definitions of common terms used.  Helpful tips to help win your disability claim.  What are Residual Functional Capacity (RFC) forms and why are they so important?  What does your past work have to do with disability?  What is child's SSI?  How to win Child's SSI.  What is the difference between Social Security Disability and SSI?  What are the most important things to know and do when trying to get benefits.  Are you disabled?  What is an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) and what is his or her role in the process?  What is the Appeals Council?  What can you do to help your Social Security Disability or SSI claim?  How to get Social Security Disability and SSI.

Long Wait At ODAR Hearing
There was a hearing of the House Social Security Subcommittee on february 14, 2007.  The topic was the extremely long wait times at SSA hearing offices.  A group that I am a member of called NOSSCR or National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives presented stories detailing the difficulty the long wait times were causing claimants.  One of the major reasons given for the delay is that SSA is underfunded and can not afford to hire enough ALJs and support staff to handle the high case load.  I am not one who believes in throwing more money at a problem but I have noticed in the ODARs that I deal with most that there are Judges leaving and not being replaced.  It also appears to me over the last three months there has been a dramatic drop in the number of hearings scheduled.  I don't expect the problems to fixed anytime soon but at-least Congress is listening.

So Your Doctor Won't Help Your Social Security Disability Claim
I am sometimes asked what to do if your own doctor will not help with your disability claim.  The first thing you should know is if your doctor is not providing his medical records you can request a subpoena from SSA.  If your lawyer is having trouble getting records sometimes if the patient goes down to the doctors office and asks for them they may have an easier time.  Patients have a relationship with the doctor and many doctors just don't like lawyers or their request for records.  When it comes to RFC forms many doctors and most clinics will refuse to fill them out.  Doctors have extremely busy schedules and can't or don't want to spend time filling them out.  One way to help with this is to bring your RFC on a scheduled medical visit and ask him or her to fill it out then.

Best place to start research for Social Security Disability
I believe this site is the best site to start your research for SSD and SSI.  If you read this site you will have a good foundation of what it takes to win your benefits.  You will learn about the process of how your claim is handled.  You will also learn how they determine if you are disabled.  Most importantly you will learn what you can do to give yourself the best chance to win.  I encourage you to visit Social Security's website as well after you understand the basics of a claim.  I have attempted in this site to make some very confusing and complex concepts easily understandable.  I hope I have achieved this goal but if you are confused about any aspect of this site just let me know so I can try and make it even more clear.

Do they turn down everyone on the first try at application for SSD?
I often get asked if everyone gets denied at application for Social Security Disability.  No, this is not true.  In fact many people win on their first shot.  However, if you lose on the first shot it does not mean you will lose later on as well.  Many people lose at application because the file is not properly developed.  If you want to make sure you give yourself the best chance of winning early you should make sure all your medical records are in and you have a good understanding of what you have to prove to succeed.  Many people who apply also do so with out a lawyer.  They often take the position that they will try on their own and if they lose they will get a lawyer.  I understand the thinking behind this but if you are going to take the first step on your own make sure you know as much as you can about how they will decide if you are disabled as you can.  The benefits of having a lawyer early on is that your claim will be properly developed and it can increase your chances of winning earlier.  Another advantage is that since lawyers get paid based on past due benefits usually the earlier you win the less you have to pay your lawyer.  So lawyer or no lawyer don't waste an opportunity to win learn as much as you can and get those medicals in.
