Social Security Disability Application Information
Filing for Social Security Disability is a big decision to make - it means accepting the fact that you may not go back to your job for a very long time if ever it all. It means accepting the fact that you may be taking an unplanned early retirement. And it means preparing yourself for the long process of filing and/or appealing your Social Security Disability claim.
Before filing your Social Security Disability application form, you must be able to prove that you are expected to be out of work for at least 12 continuous months due to a permanent disability. For best results you should have sufficient medical documents and a physician's opinion to confirm the existence and severity of the disabling condition. You will also need your birth certificate or other proof of birth, W-2 forms(s) and/or self-employment tax returns, naturalization papers and/or US military discharge papers.
Gathering the necessary documentation for all the Social Security Disability forms can be incredibly time-consuming and complicated, and once you have filed your claim you have no guarantee that it will be awarded (even if your disability is on the Social Security Disability list of impairment). More than 60% of SSD applicants are denied during the initial stage.
While the Social Security Administration denies many (if not most) of the claims submitted, it is still possible to win your case the first time you apply. The Social Security Disability advocates at Binder & Binder® can help your fill out the application for Social Security Disability, submit your application, and keep you updated on your Social Security Disability application status. Statistics clearly show that claimants who are represented by Binder & Binder® win their Social Security Disability benefits far more often than those who apply on their own. Even if you've already had an application denied, we can still win your case.
