When you have a claim pending for Social Security Disability Insurance (“SSDI”) and/or Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) Payments, it is important that you understand the Social Security disability process. You must provide relevant updates to the Social Security Administration (“SSA”) and the Disability Determination Service (“DDS”). If you are waiting for an Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”) Hearing it is also important that you update the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (“ODAR”) regarding relevant changes in your life. If you fail to advise SSA of significant changes, it is possible your claim can be denied for the wrong reasons.
I help individuals understand the Social Security disability process, and more importantly know what steps have to be taken before a decision is issued. When I assist with claims, I advise you on the law, and obtain relevant documentation from your doctors to prove your disability. If you are denied benefits, I make sure that your appeal is filed timely, and explain the appeals process to you.
