The filing processes for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are harrowing and can leave one feeling hopeless. The Social Security Administration (SSA) requires complete, thorough, and accurate applications as well as sufficient evidence because their review process is extremely detailed. Only 30% of all Social Security disability applications are approved each year.
The Antonowicz Group understands what the SSA is looking for when reviewing claims, and our disability attorneys can help ensure your application is completed correctly. We will also help you obtain the evidence necessary to support your claim based on your disability and situation.
Our SSDI and SSI attorneys in Utica, New York are aggressive with disability cases and we are willing to take appeals to the federal court level if needed.
Applying for Social Security Disability
When completing the initial application to file for benefits, we cannot stress the importance of being thorough and precise. All information must be completely accurate and every question should be answered to the best of your ability.
When submitting supporting documentation, look up the guidelines to see if you meet the SSA’s requirements for your condition. Each one has its own set of criteria that must be met, and it can vary based on symptoms.
Disability Claim Appeals
Having your application for disability benefits rejected does not necessarily mean the SSA denies that you have a disability. It often means that while they recognize your condition as a qualifying disability, it’s possible your application was incomplete, included misinformation, or did not include sufficient evidence to prove your claim.
Working with an experienced disability attorney helps ensure all those bases are covered, however, if you did have your claim rejected the lawyers at Antonowicz Group can help. We will review your claim, your medical records, and speak with you in-depth about your situation and circumstances. From there we can determine what approach to proceed with, and what additional documentation you need to include.
