Your Questions Answered
How does Social Security decide if I am disabled?
Using a 5-step process, Social Security takes the information provided in the initial application, medical records, work history and third-party witness statements and then determines if a person meets their criteria for disability. The 5-step process goes in the following order:
- Step 1: Are you currently performing work at substantial gainful activity?
- Step 2: Are your physical and/or mental impairments severe?
- Step 3: Do any of your impairments meet or equal any of Social Security’s Listing of Impairments?
- Step 4: Are you able to return to any of your past work, either as you performed it or as it is generally performed in the national economy?
- Step 5: Is there other work you could perform in the national economy?
How long does it take for my social security application to be processed?
It generally takes 5-7 months to get a decision. However, it depends on where the application is being processed, how long it takes to obtain your medical records, whether Social Security decides to send you to a consultative evaluation and any other documentation needed to process your claim.
What are my chances of getting Social Security Disability?
No lawyer can promise you a favorable outcome in your Social Security claim. That said, the statistics show that your chances of approval increase with each appeal, and you are much more likely to be approved at a hearing with an ALJ than at the initial or reconsideration levels.
I know someone with the same medical conditions as me that was approved, but I was denied. What gives?
While this may seem confusing and even unfair, Social Security considers each case on an individual basis using the 5-step process and considering factors such as age, education, and past work experience. People see different doctors, receive different medical treatment and may have different restrictions as a result of the same medical conditions.
I would like a lawyer, but I’m not working. How do I pay you?
Social Security Attorney Fees are regulated by the federal government. I am only paid if I win a recovery for you. I am paid 25 percent of any backpay, up to $7,200. If I don’t win your case, I don’t get paid. It’s that simple. There is no charge to you up front or out of pocket costs.
My commitment to you:
My goal is to serve and support disabled individuals with compassion and empathy, as we work together to obtain the social security benefits you deserve.
