I represent hundreds of clients every year in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims and there are things that I take for granted people know.  However, since they don’t do this every day, they simply do not.  In this blog I’ll share some things that I believe should be mentioned.

If you have a Social Security disability lawyer, he or she should be able to elaborate on this information.  The process can be a long, drawn out, confusing endeavor.  If you do not have a representative, stay on top of your claim.  At some point in your claim process, you may be furnished a CD with all your documentation the SSA has obtained.  Reviewing this CD may help you see how the SSA is organizing and completing your file.

The above information is not intended as legal advice, so if you feel uncomfortable representing yourself, I strongly urge you to seek legal counsel.  My office does not charge for an initial consultation and would welcome the opportunity to help you better understand the process.
