Setting Yourself Up for a Win: Binder & Binder® Offers Tips on Winning Social Security Disability Benefits at a Hearing

Hauppauge, NY - August 8, 2011 If you have filed for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income and your claim has gotten to the point of a hearing, you’re been waiting a long time for your chance to be approved for benefits, says Binder & Binder®, America's Most Successful Social Security Disability Advocates®. Because winning a Social Security Disability (SSD) hearing is so important, Binder & Binder® has written a new article called “Winning Social Security Disability Benefits at a Hearing.”

The article covers a number of things claimants can do to prepare before their Social Security Disability hearing to improve their chances of winning SSD benefits, including gathering medical records and documentation and requesting statements from any treating physicians.

“The Social Security Disability claims process can take an extremely long time and be incredibly frustrating, especially if you are not working due to your disability,” said Mario Davila, Managing Director of Binder & Binder®. “While doing one of the things listed in this article won’t guarantee you will win approval of your Social Security Disability benefits, doing none of these things will definitely guarantee you won’t win your hearing.”

In addition to submitting supportive medical evidence and doctors’ statements, Binder & Binder® suggests hiring a Social Security Disability Advocate who will guide you through the hearing process, claiming a skilled and knowledgeable advocate at a hearing can definitely be the difference between winning and losing an SSD claim.

“Your advocate will have been to numerous hearings, and they will know all the questions you need to be able to answer, evidence needed to support Social Security Disability eligibility, how to present this evidence to the Administrative Law Judge at your hearing, and much more,” said Davila. “It’s taken a long time to get your hearing, don’t wait until the last minute to prepare and risk losing, the sooner you can hire an advocate the better.”
