What You Can Expect From Your Trusted Disability Representative
If you think that you are eligible for disability benefits, you do not have to struggle through the long and difficult application process on your own. Working with a disability representative has many benefits. Here are some ways you can expect them to help.
Knowledge and experienceWhen you work with a disability representative, you can will be assured you are working with people who are knowledgeable and experienced in disability law. The people who work for disability representative organizations are dedicated to helping people be successful in their attempt to receive benefits. Although these people are not representative, they have many years of experience and are all well versed in the knowledge that is needed to help you win your case.
Help with filing a claimMany claims are denied when they are submitted due to simple reasons such as incomplete or inaccurate information. Your disability representative will help you file your claim with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and will make sure that you have included all of the required information. It is like having a second set of eyes to assure everything is in place, which will ultimately give you a better chance of having your claim approved.
Speaks with your doctorsYour disability advocate will speak with your doctors and other medical providers on your behalf. This can speed up the process immensely. Often, doctors are not willing to speak with their patients regarding the information that is needed for disability claims. However, when they are approached by disability advocates, they are much more willing to provide the necessary information.
Keeps you informedThe application process for receiving disability benefits can take a long time. In fact, some people have to wait as much as one year before they receive an answer from the SSA. The wait can be quite frustrating to many people who are likely depending on the money they will receive to pay their monthly bills. Your disability representative will keep you informed every step of the way. The SSA will contact your representative when new steps are reached and progress has been made. Your representative, in turn, will contact you with all of the updates. So, you will never need to wonder about the status of your claim.
