If you have developed a disability and you can no longer earn a living wage as a result, you may be considering applying for Social Security disability benefits. Although it is possible to apply on your own, a qualified representative will essentially streamline the process for you and ensure your application is accurate, complete, and thorough. For quality disability representation, turn to our team at Disability Claim Consultants in Omaha, NE.
We will guide you through every step of the process, from filing the application to gathering the medical evidence needed to strengthen your claim. This includes requesting medical records, reviewing them for accuracy, and determining if you need to undergo any additional testing to qualify for benefits.
We will also prepare you for the disability hearing. During the preparation prior to the hearing, we will discuss which issues will be addressed, and we will go over the kinds of questions the judge will ask you and the best way to get the judge to understand your story. The hearing is your only opportunity to present your case before an administrative law judge, who will ultimately decide the fate of your claim. So, qualified representation, thorough medical record compilation and review, and a clear theory to your claim are critical to the successful conclusion of your claim.
The Social Security Administration reports that in 2016, approximately 33% of applications were awarded at the initial level. Only 12% were awarded at the reconsideration level, and 46% were awarded at the hearing level. If you apply for disability benefits, receiving a denial is a very real possibility. Statistics show claimants who have representation at the earlier stage of the process receive awards sooner and more often that unrepresented claimants. Fortunately, we at Disability Claim Consultants have a thorough understanding of the law and disability process and will use all of our knowledge, skills, and experience in this complicated field to reach the best outcome in you claim.
