Your doctor has said you can no longer work. Still, you have bills to pay and a family to feed. You apply for Social Security Income and you are denied. This is where an advocate can help you win your benefits. While you may think it is a waste of your time, hiring an advocate may not only help you win your case but may save you time and frustration.
• Social security advocates know what to look for in your claim that can help or hinder your case. These facts may not only help you win benefits but may also help you get the maximum you are eligible to collect.
• It’s not enough to have a doctor state that you are disabled. Social Security administrators are looking for specific language and types of tests that explain your medical condition before approving your claim. An advocate can advise you of these tests before the hearing.
• Have you appeared before a judge or participated in an appeals hearing? Most people have not. Your advocate will be there with you and will guide you through the complicated process. Your advocate will also prepare witnesses that will testify on your behalf and question or challenge other witnesses at the hearings.
If you need Social Security income to provide for yourself or your family, you cannot afford to go through a lengthy appeals process. An advocate can prevent you from making mistakes that will get you denied. If you need assistance in this area click here.
