Hauppauge, NY – July 19, 2011 - Binder & Binder®, America's Most Successful Social Security Disability Advocates®, have released a new article on their site titled "Improving Your Odds of Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits." The article explains why the wait for Social Security Disability (SSD) can be so long, and what applicants can do to speed up the process.
"We understand that many people who cannot work and who are waiting to receive Social Security Disability benefits have a very difficult time making ends meet," said Mario Davila, Managing Director of Binder & Binder®. "Reading this article may prepare many for the long road ahead, and can also help applicants who are currently in the waiting process."
Hiring a Social Security Disability advocate to help file an SSD claim from the very beginning can significantly improve chances of receiving an approval for SSD benefits, but most applicants will still have to wait at least three to four months just for their claim to be initially processed by the Social Security Administration (SSA). During this time, it's important for every applicant to keep their medical records up-to-date, and return any forms the SSA sends as soon as possible.
"When the SSA sends you forms to fill out, you usually only have ten days to fill them out and send them back. If you don't complete their forms in time, you could be denied benefits based on a lack of cooperation," said Davila. "Because of the financial hardships most people encounter while waiting for SSD, many have to move around during the process. So it's important to always update the SSA with your current address as well."
By doing things "Better and Nicer," the Social Security Disability advocates at Binder & Binder® give client concerns top priority, and make sure they are given the attention they deserve. "We know that people feel physically, emotionally and financially victimized by their illnesses, as well as by the Social Security Administration," said Davila. "With this article we want to send a clear message to our clients: Don't ever give up on your Social Security Disability claim."
