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.

     I provide this free information on Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income so that everyone who is disabled has the tools they need to win disability.  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.   


Here is what one person had to say about my website "Thanks for the site, absolutely a "Bible" for all who have fear, doubt or lack of knowledge."  Christopher.  To see what other have said about this website read the website testimonials on the page called "Best Social Security Disability Website".

Find SSDI Lawyer


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. 

I wish you good luck with your claim and further encourage you to finish reading this site.

Ultimate Disability Guide New Look Coming Next Week

For years I have handled every aspect of this website on Social Security Disability law. I do not know how to write website code and I have never gone to school for website marketing. I am a lawyer and Social Security disability specialists and know quite a bit about Veterans Disability as well. I have written every word on this website with the only exception being rules and regulations that I quote from the Social Security Administration website and Veterans Administration website. I have come to the conclusion, that in order to reach more people looking for real helpful and informative information on disability law that I would need help. I have been able to reach many people because of the content I have written on this website. However, it has become clear to me that search engine technology still does not have the ability to separate good quality content from cookie-cutter websites that have search engine experts helping these cookie-cutter websites achieve higher rankings on the major search engines. For those of you who have searched for information on Social Security disability or VA law, I am sure you have experience how difficult it is to find good quality content on the subject matter. I have used the different major search engines to see what results show up for information on SSDI and SSI and I have found that there is only a handful of websites that have any useful information on the subject. It has also become apparent to me that the look of my website is showing its age and needs a new look. That being said, I will continue to write all the content on my website, so that I know the information is as accurate and as helpful as possible for all of those seeking help with their disability claims. By next week if goes as planned the new site will be launched,my new website will be better organized with a similar but more modern look. I firmly believe I do provide the best free information on Social Security Disability law and VA Compensation law on the Internet and hopefully with a little help from some search engine experts my website and it's information will be easier to find for all those looking for great information on SSDI, SSI and VA disability. If you are a regular reader of my website or new to my site, I welcome any comments on the new look and usability of the new website when it goes live next week. My website will never be a cookie-cutter website, and as I stated earlier, I will continue to write all the content for the Ultimate Disability Guide and I personally will still answer all e-mail questions. I am very pleased with the new look and usability and I hope you will be to. Hopefully, not only will I still provide the best information on disability law but will now also be able to reach even more people in need of this information.

Good News for Social Security Disability Case Backlogs
In a recent press release, The Social Security Administration has announced the opening of its fifth National Hearing Center (NHC) in St. Louis Missouri. In this same facility will also be a new National Case Assistance Center (NCAC) and the Midwest Training Center. This was paid for by the American recovery and reinvestment act of 2009. The purpose of these National Hearing Centers are to hold of video hearings in parts of the country where Social Security disability hearing backlogs are heaviest. There will be 18 new administrative law judges and 82 person support staff at this office. The NHC of St. Louis will start hearing cases for the Cleveland, Ohio and Minneapolis, Minnesota hearing offices since these two hearing offices are two of the most backlogged in the nation. As I've mentioned in earlier posts, there are also National Hearing Centers in Albuquerque New Mexico, Baltimore Maryland, Falls Church Virginia, and Chicago Illinois. The addition of all these NHCs is to help deal with the increased caseload and huge backlog in Social Security Disability hearings. These NHCs are much needed as the wait time for hearing can be anywhere from one to two years and sometimes even longer. The hope is that with the opening of these new hearing offices the wait time will be reduced for all those waiting for hearing for their Social Security Disability or SSI claim. In all probability however, due to the tremendous increase in cases due to the poor economy, even a slight improvement or a prevention of the backlogs getting worse make this investment well worth it. The Social Security Administration states that they plan to issue approximately 750,000 SSDI and SSI decision this year in total. Perhaps just as important, if not more important, is the National Case Assistance Center which will focus on decision writing assistance to backlogged hearing offices throughout the country. It has been my experience in my practice, that lately there has been a delay in getting out decisions after hearing due to the shortage of writers. This means that in many cases the decision for the claim has been made but the file is simply waiting for a writer to write up a decision so it can be sent to the claimant. The NCAC was set up to specifically address this issue. Lastly, the Midwest Training Center will be used to train Midwest and western employees for their work for the Social Security Administration. This announcement of these three new offices is good news for all those with Social Security Disability claims presently, and will also be an asset for future SSD and SSI claims.
