Disability: What you don’t know can hurt you

The majority of Social Security Disability claims are denied in the initial claim and reconsideration levels.  These denials can be very frustrating and even detrimental to an Applicant.  What you don’t know can hurt you.

Sometimes, an Applicant’s own actions may be the cause of these denials.  An Applicant may be taking actions that are unintentionally derailing and even causing denial of their claim.

It is very important to know your options and the expectations of the Social Security Administration. A Social Security Disability attorney has the knowledge and expertise to help you protect your claim from unintentional mistakes. 

The biggest mistake made by Applicants, which will cause a reduction in benefits or denial of a claim, is when an Applicant continues working during the Disability process.   It is vital to speak with a Disability attorney in order to arm yourself with the knowledge to keep your claim on track without unintentionally harming your benefits.  A Disability attorney can assist you with specific requirements the Social Security Administration is looking for, and this knowledge will greatly increase your chances of success.
