Applying for social security disability and SSI benefits, with or without an advocate can be difficult due to how long a claim may take and the high chance of being denied. But those who are denied disability can win benefits by utilizing the appeals process. To increase the chances of winning, applicants should learn about the system and file an appeal when a claim is denied.
congrats on the diability!!! i am considering this myself for my family's sake.. havent worked in 4 years...i spent the 1'st two in denial after my boss shut the practice down...kept looking for work i couldnt find..all the while i continued to feel worse... and then my son got diagnosed and was suffering symptoms, and ended up needing the surgery and i was focusing on him...all the while i hve given up on dumb dumb doctors who arent knowlegable or doing anything to help me..and dot socument anyuthing the way it happens or is said...one time i went in...was walkin funny, hesaid my gait ws off and yet i his all to brief, noninformative dictation he states the words "gait-normal"?? you can see why i gave up on the whole thing..thank God for finding a good pediatric for my son..but as an adult...it seems hopeless... i fear it may be too late, but i know that i cannot physically do my job in orthopedics and radiology anymore.very physica,,and i never know from one day to the next how well i will be functioning or how reliable i will be??? who helped you with your disability and what did you say??? helpppp!!
I'm so happy for you. I am not so fortunate. I went to my hearing and I was denied, but I had a judge that only approved 8 out of 76 cases so I am hoping and praying that this appeal will work. They sent me a letter saying this process can take up to a year and it has already been a yr and a half, but patience is the key I guess. I just take one day at a time and hoping for a better tomorrow.
