Do You Need a Lawyer to Apply for Social Security Disability?

Many applicants for Social Security Disability benefits find the application process to be frustrating and overwhelming, especially when they are initially denied. If you have filed a claim for benefits, you have the right to counsel under the Administrative Procedure Act §6(a), 5 U.S.C. §1005(a). Hiring an attorney can help demystify the process, ensure fairness, and even improve your chances of approval at the hearing level.

Function Report

After you file your Social Security Disability claim, you may be asked to fill out an adult function report (Form SSA-3373), to aid a decision-maker in determining whether you are completely disabled. The function report should outline how your impairments interfere with activities of daily living (ADLs) according to your own words. Activities of daily living may include the ability to get dressed, groom yourself, prepare meals, clean your home, obtain groceries, and care for children or pets.

Subsequent Disability Claims: Can You Apply for SSD Again?

Some people go their whole lives without becoming disabled. Some are disabled to the point that they must stop working. Still others face multiple disabilities during their lifetimes, causing frequent trips not only to the doctor, but also to the SSA office for disability benefits.

SSA Tests New Models for Determining Disability in Missouri

Few people are satisfied with the Social Security Administration's process for determining disability and awarding benefits. Some may think that Social Security Disability (SSD) standards are not strict enough and discourage people from working even when they can. Those on the other side see that SSD is essential for millions of people. They argue that SSD eligibility requirements are too strict, keeping benefits from the disabled Americans who need them.

Filing Your SSDI Application: Mistakes to Avoid

The Social Security Administration rejects approximately two of every three initial Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) applications it receives. That is a difficult statistic to swallow, especially when many individuals who apply for SSDI are dealing with financial strain in addition to their disabilities.
