Have a professional on your side
It can be challenging enough applying for a social security disability benefit, but in fact it is common for the majority of these applications to be rejected initially. This doesn’t mean that you cannot obtain a benefit, but it does mean you have to provide better evidence that your functional limitations are as severe as you have been claiming. An experienced disability lawyer can help you prepare the medical and work history evidence to support an application for a benefit and can represent you in an administrative review hearing if you request this. Your chances of successfully obtaining a benefit are improved with the help of a lawyer.
