How to Win a Social Security Disability Reconsideration
It might come as a surprise to learn that a significant number of social security disability (SSD) claims are initially denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA). This is usually because the claimant hasn’t met the necessary criteria for approval or introduced errors in their paperwork.
Fortunately, as long as you’ve met the requirements for approval, it should be relatively simple to appeal your claim with the SSA. Continue reading to learn more about how you can win your SSD reconsideration request with the assistance of an attorney.
Submitting Supporting Medical Documentation
Your appeal begins when you submit a reconsideration request. This is where another SSA representative will review the details of your claim to make a decision.
At this stage, we’ll want to be sure that all of your medical documentation to support the validity and seriousness of your condition has been received by the SSA. The goal is for the SSA to have no doubt that your condition prevents you from working.
Let Your Attorney Plead Your Case
The SSA should have already received the information regarding your work credits, as this information is already at their fingertips. The most critical piece of information will be your medical documentation, and if the SSA has determined that you do not meet the disability requirements, prior to the reconsideration request, your lawyer can help.
We’ll request further examination by another physician, or have the documentation from your treating physician sent directly to the SSA representative who will be reviewing your claim. If you are physically unable to work due to the extent of your condition, your attorney will stop at nothing to get your claim for SSD benefits approved in the reconsideration stage of your appeal.
