Below are some tips for winning an SSD case:
- Medical tips: The SSA will base its decision to approve or deny your claim on the basis of medical evidence. Therefore, it is important to see your doctor regularly, and follow your doctor’s orders. You must explain all of your symptoms to the best of your ability so your doctor can accurately diagnose your condition. It is important to keep complete records of your doctor visits and get copies of all medical records. This is particularly important when a mental impairment, such as depression or anxiety, is preventing you from working.
- Take action as soon as possible: The SSA has an extensive backlog of claims. It can take years before your claim is approved. This is especially true if you have to file a review or appeal. The longer you wait, the longer you will go without benefits. Our law firm knows just how much these benefits mean to you, and want to see you obtain them as soon as possible.
