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.

SSDI Consultative Medical Exams
Most people who apply for Social Security Disability will be sent by SSA to a consultative medical exam.  There may be more than one exam if different types of doctors are needed based on the medical conditions.  For example, If you apply for SSDI and your medical condition is disc problems in your back and depression, then you will probably be sent to see an Orthopedist and a Psychiatrist or Psychologist.  These exams are designed to evaluate your medical condition.  These doctors are independent but paid by SSA.  When an exam is scheduled for you it is very important you go to the exam or reschedule as early as possible if you must.  These exams many times can turn out to be unhelpful, so it is important to have all your medical records and opinion evidence from your treating doctors as part of the file.  The good news is that by SSA rule the decision maker must give your treating doctor more weight than the consultative examining doctor as long as your treating doctors opinion is consistent with the medical records.

Social Security Disability Hearing. Are you ready?
So you got your Social Security disability hearing date.  Now what?  You want to make sure SSA has all your medical records that are relevant for your SSDI case.  You also want to make sure you have some opinion evidence from your doctors.  This can be in the form of a report explaining your conditions, treatment and how it prevents you from working.  Even better if you have RFC forms completed by your doctors, since these forms show your doctors opinion of the limitations you have from your conditions.  You also should consider getting an experienced disability lawyer to help you since they will be very familiar with the hearing process.  They can also make sure the proper questions are asked of you and be able to cross examine any experts at your hearing.  It also helps if you do some research on what to expect at an SSDI hearing so you are more comfortable on your hearing day.  I hope you find these tips helpful.
