What Can I Do To Help My Chances Of Being Approved For Disability

You have become disabled and can no longer work. It is a tough time in your life. You need assistance. The assistance comes in the form of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). However getting to the point where you have your application and hearing approved is a long process. Approximately 30 percent of cases are only approved on their first hearing. What can you do to help your chances of being one of those cases?


If you are applying for Social Security disability for the first time, it is important to have accurate and up-to-date records. These include correct and accurate contact information for yourself along with any doctors who have been treating you. Also, you need any and all related medical records to your injury.

Your medical records represent the main key to determining if you are currently disabled and can or cannot work. It is important to have notes of key dates when you became disabled and all doctor visits you have attended. Have your physician to write a document detailing your injury and treatment provided. This can assist your case by your physician explaining your condition and how it affects your ability to work.

Know the System

Knowing how the disability system works. A person can become knowledgeable of how the Social Security disability system works through the government website. The government site will explain the process and will be able to provide you the forms you will need to apply for Social Security disability. Once you have an understanding of the process it will help you in organizing your documentation for your case hearing.

If you do not have a successful hearing on the first time, it is important you appeal the decision immediately. You can appeal as many times as you want. You will need to continue to see your treating physician. Do not stop with treatments prescribed by your doctor. Maintain and keep any new documentation you acquire to present for your appeal.

Testimonial by Lilliam Rivera-Reyes

"I had a very challenging case; another attorney took my case and to my surprise sent me a letter dropping my case. I was very down and did not think I had a chance, until I met Mr. Berger and his staff.

Their professionalism and hospitality was very warm and inviting. They took my case on as a challenge and gave me a hope. I am very thankful for his professionalism and for winning my case. I will never forget him and will recommend him to my friends and family."
