Our Purpose

This site should help those who are contemplating applying for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income and those individuals who have already applied for Social Security Disability benefits, no matter what stage they are at in the Social Security Disability process. If you have any questions that are not answered by this site or want a free consultation, please feel free to e-mail me at karl@ultimatedisabilityguide.comvisit my law firm's website or call 877-527-5529.  I will try to answer any questions you might have about Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

How to Use this site.  If you are new to the process of Social Security Disability, I recommend you start by 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.
     If you need tips on how to win your SSDI or SSI claim, continue to read this site and bookmark it so you can come back and use it as a reference while you take on the Social Security Disability process. Please note that it is my intention to provide accurate and up-to-date information on this site, as I put in great effort to do this. However, the information on this site is not guaranteed and no lawyer-client relationship exists.  This site is not a substitute for consultation with a lawyer.

New information on SSDI and SSI to website now and in the future.
This is an update to some recent changes to the ultimate disability guide website, and I will also talk about some additional information I will be adding in the near future. I will be attending the NOSSCR conference in May. One of the topics covered will be the new rules put into effect that will affect child's SSI claims. The new rules are designed to give guidance to adjudicators and how to apply the rules under the child SSI program. When I returned from the seminar I will post my opinions on how these new rules may affect claims for child's SSI. I have also recently started adding the statistics for 2008 for the winning percentages at application and reconsideration for SSDI and SSI claims on the individual state pages. I have also recently added a page that discusses the different Social Security disability programs so that you may assess which programs you may qualify for. You can find this new page on the navigation bar to the left. There is one more thing I would like to mention that I have noticed in my practice. I have noticed that there is many more claims being approved at the hearing stage before a hearing is even scheduled. This is clearly an indication to me that Social Security is looking for cases with a high probability of approval and improving them without a hearing. This is one of the things the Social Security Administration is doing to help decrease the backlog of cases at the hearing level. This is good news, because many people who are being approved by this process are getting their benefits much quicker than they would if they had to wait for a hearing date.

Social Security Disability Compassionate Allowances

The Social Security Administration has recently developed and implemented a new process for certain medical conditions that can get a quicker Social Security determination. The purpose of this initiative was to get faster approvals for medical conditions that are almost certain to win based on the diagnosis and to help those with these diagnosis get a faster decision from Social Security. A list of the these medical conditions can be found on my page entitled "Social Security Process." Most of the diseases listed on the list are certain types of cancer. But you should check this list to see if your medical condition is on the list because it can mean a decision will be made much more quickly than the normal Social Security Disability process. These cases are supposed to be identified as soon as you file your claim for disability by a computer program. However, it certainly does not hurt to check the list to see if your condition is on that list, and if it is to notify Social Security so you can be given the benefit of the quicker decision. I think this is a great new tool in speeding up the process of getting Social Security disability benefits for not only those with these conditions but for others as well. I say this because, if these claims do not have to go through the regular stages then there is less cases in the regular process which hopefully will decrease the backlog.
