Can I Represent Myself In My SSD Claim?

If you are disabled and considering applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you may have questions about the application process. And you may be wondering if you need to work with a disability advocate - or whether you can handle this on your own.

First things first, it is important to know that applying for SSD benefits is not an easy process:

  • Complete medical records must be obtained. Depending on your condition, this may include hospital records, discharge summaries, biopsy results, physical therapy records, and more.
  • Strict deadlines must be met. If you miss a deadline, you may have to start all over again.
  • Extensive paperwork must be completed.
  • To ensure a strong, compelling claim, your doctor's opinion corroborating your condition should be obtained.

Making just one mistake could derail your application. It is advisable to work with an advocate from the beginning of your case, to ensure that all steps are completed correctly and all deadlines are met.

Your health and future wellbeing are too important to risk going this alone. Help is available.
