Social Security Disability Process
Documentation from the Social Security Disability Administration, including forms on the website www.ssd.gov, may make the claims process sound straightforward and simple.
In 1998, President Bill Clinton wrote in a memorandum issued by the White House, “The Federal Government’s writing must be in plain language.” As other government agencies do, the Social Security Administration aims to communicate clearly through ordinary language to explain policies and processes.
Although the language is plain to understand, the Social Security Disability process is not necessarily transparent. For one thing, a great majority of applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. Applying for disability benefits is no guarantee that you will receive them, even if your case is valid.
At this point, many claimants who believe that they have a strong case seek out the help of a lawyer. Daisley Law Offices, P.C., represents North Carolinians through the appeals process.
If you are represented by Daisley Law Offices, P.C., you will know us and we will know you by name. Our clients deal directly with our attorney and dedicated staff throughout the process leading up to administrative hearings. (In contrast, clients represented by out-of-town Social Security Disability law firms often do not meet their attorneys until 15 minutes before these all-important hearings.)
After the denial, we help prepare detailed, persuasive documentation to present together with our clients before an administrative judge at an appeals hearing.
We believe that our law firm stands out among Social Security Disability law firms in this area for a number of reasons. Meticulous preparation, trusting relationships and a firm foundation in Social Security Disability law strengthen our clients’ cases.
- We bring years of experience, depth of knowledge and a track record of many successful appeals to bear on every case.
- We spend ample time getting to know our clients well before the administrative hearing and preparing them for the occasion. Our clients are reassured and at ease by the time we get to the hearing. We take the time and care necessary to gather all relevant medical records and other pertinent information, evidence and documentation.
- We prep our clients on the kinds of questions to expect.
- The administrative law judges know us well and respect our word. This familiarity gives our clients confidence.
