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.

Win Your Social Security Disability Benefits with Confidence You are Disabled
If you have a serious medical condition and you are not able to work as a result of that medical condition and you have your doctor support then you should win your Social Security Disability case. If you think you might be disabled or you know you can't do your prior work but are unsure if there is other work you can do then you may win and you may not even with your doctor's support. This may seem like a peculiar start to a post about winning your Social Security Disability benefits but I truly believe the statements I made are true. If you truly cannot work due to your medical conditions and you learn about Social Security disability law and or get an experienced Social Security disability lawyer then you should win your case at some point in the Social Security disability process. If you have doubts about whether or not you are unable to work then even if you learn what you need to know and have a lawyer your chances of winning your claim are less. I say this because only you truly know whether or not you are able to work and if you have doubts and think you may be able to work chances are you have those doubts for a reason and those reasons will show up in your case in one form or another. There are exceptions of course, if you suffer from a mental condition that is disabling you may have these doubts because of your illness. On the other hand, if you have doubts about whether you can work or not and you do not suffer from a mental illness then perhaps you are not truly disabled and should attempt to work to see if you can. This may seem like strange advice from a Social Security disability lawyer but it is my believe that it is always better to work then to get disability if you can work. I say this because chances are you will make more money from working and you will continue to pay into the Social Security disability system so if you find that you cannot work due to trying or your conditions getting worse you will possibly be entitled to more money when found disabled. Before you decide to apply for Social Security disability you must understand that it may take a long time to win your benefits and there is always a chance you may lose. So you must consider whether or not you can go without income for a long period of time. If you know you are unable to work then you have no choice but to apply. If you know you are disabled as I said earlier you should win your case. This does not mean you can simply apply and expect to win. This means if you learn how to win your particular claim and have an experienced Social Security disability lawyer and supporting doctors your chances of winning are quite good. If you and your lawyer work together to make sure all of the medical evidence and opinion evidence from your doctors is in your file you will not only give yourself a great chance of winning but also give yourself a better chance of winning earlier in the process. I have handled thousands of cases over the years and I have learned a lot over that time. One thing I have learned is that people who are truly disabled and are unable to work due to a severe medical condition or multiple medical conditions are most active in their case and almost always win their claim at some point. The few cases that lose are usually the result of treating doctors that are not helpful and unwilling to fill out any forms or submit their medical records. You may be wondering why lawyers would represent claimants that are unsure if they are truly disabled and unable to work. Most claimants will not come right out and say they are unsure if they are able to work or not. When a client comes to me asking if I think they are disabled then I tell them what the requirements are to be found disabled depending on their situation, and explain to them how long the process can take. I also advise them if they feel they can work they should try and if they find they can't then they should apply for disability.  I am speaking in very general terms here and I have been surprised by some cases that win and others that lose but my general conclusions I believe are accurate.  If you are unsure if you are disabled, speak to a lawyer and your doctor and it may help you determine if you truly can't work or you should give work even another type of work a try.  If the lawyer and doctor both feel you probably are disabled this may also make you more sure that you cannot work which will help your case because you will be confident that you are disabled and unable to work and it will show and help your case. To be clear, this article is not about not applying if you are not 100% sure if you will win it is about how having confidence you are disabled and unable to work can help your claim if you are disabled.
