An attorney’s help on SSDI application can minimize delays

If you are suffering from a medical condition that makes it more and more difficult to continue working, you may have considered applying for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. These benefits can help replace some of the income that you no longer can earn.

However, you may also know that SSDI is not an easy application to complete, and that some people spend months or years waiting for the approval of the disability benefits. That is true, especially if you have a difficult to diagnose condition that does not fit into any of the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) defined impairments.

In that situation, working with a SSDI attorney can be very helpful, because they deal with these cases on a regular basis and understand the procedures and operation of the SSA. Your attorney will recognize which documents are essential for your application to receive approval.

They also will know when a medical test may be too old to be considered valid by the SSA, and can help to collect and organize all of your medical records in a way that accurately describes the progression of your medical condition.

If your initial application is denied, they also are experienced dealing with hearings and the appeals process within the SSA, and know how to timely put together your appeal, to ensure you do not miss any important deadlines.

The SSA has struggled with increased applications and funding issues that have made it challenging to deal with the growing appeals backlog. As an applicant for SSDI benefits, you best chance of avoiding that backlog and the delays it cause is to work with an attorney who can help ensure your application is complete and accurate.
