disability filingIf you have considered applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you probably know how difficult the process can be. Between numerous documents to fill out and the long waiting period, many people find the disability application process to be overwhelming. However, getting disability benefits does not have to be stressful. Following a few simple tips can maximize your chances of getting the benefits you need.

Tricks Of The Trade

In order to get disability benefits you will be required to prove that a medical condition or illness prevents you from working and obtaining income. Although there are many conditions and illnesses that qualify for disability benefits, this does not mean that you are automatically qualified. The Social Security Administration determines your eligibility based on (a) the severity of your condition, (2) the limits and overall impairment caused by your condition and (c) the confirmation of the assessment by a physician. Therefore, you must have a diagnosis that meets the disability criteria, along with confirmation by a certified physician of your condition.

Not only will you be required to provide numerous documents about the nature of your condition or illness, but these documents must be provided at the time of application. Many people go ahead and apply for benefits assuming they can send in these documents later. While there are no hard and fast rules about when this information is due, your chances of success are much higher when you provide everything the SSA requests at your initial application.

Further, the best way to maximize your chances of success is to obtain representation. Hiring a disability attorney can greatly impact your chance at benefits. Not only will the disability attorney represent you, they can make the process much easier by helping you with collecting the required documents and filing them with the SSA.
