Disability Help Group was founded by experienced disability experts who have been representing the disabled for over 15 years. The team understands how to work with the Social Security Administration and Veterans’ Affairs in the best interest of the disabled person.
Disability claims often require time and patience by the claimant, which can be tough to deal with when a person’s finances are in question. We understand, and we are here to help.
We have representatives across the country to ensure that your rights are being protected and the disability process is being properly followed. You can call us at any time should you have any questions regarding your claim.
Most people understand that to win a disability claim, Social Security must find that the applicant cannot work. However, proving that an individual cannot work is not as simple as submitting some medical records and saying, “I cannot work.” If it were that easy, no one would need representation and you would not hear the horror stories about fighting the Social Security Administration (SSA).
The SSA does not make the disability benefits application process easy. Many of the forms required to apply for your Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income claim are difficult to complete. In addition to filling out the application, you must also gather and submit evidence of your disability, work history, and how your condition limits your ability to perform substantial gainful activity.
Once your application is complete, it is critical that you receive guidance on what medical evidence is necessary to prove that you are disabled. For example, your standard medical records do not explain the details that the SSA looks for on a disability claim, such as the following.
Generally speaking, patients’ medical records rarely discuss what is critical for proving disability, especially why the person applying for disability does not have the capacity to work. Doctors just are not trained to think that way or to write reports that way.
Disability Help Group makes sure that our clients’ medical records are complete and draft briefs that we submit to the Social Security Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR). To put that another way, we know how to take your medical records and use the contents of those medical records to prove you cannot work.
Additionally, we will provide you with special forms we have created that specifically allow your doctors to write about your medical conditions in work-related terms. These easy-to-complete forms make it easy for your doctor to help you win your case.
Most people also do not know that there are ways to win a disability case besides just proving you cannot work. Social Security has very specific medical definitions called Listings of Impairments. If we can prove that you have exactly what is in those Listings, you can win your case regardless of your employability. Our advocates have argued thousands of cases and know what to look for in the Listings to prove your disability case.
Age is also an important factor in getting disability. Most individuals above the age of 50 have an easier time getting disability because the rules change at that critical age. It gets even easier for some when they hit their 55th birthday. Due to age, many people do not have to prove they cannot work any job, but rather, just have to show they cannot work some jobs. Our advocates know how to use these special rules to our clients’ advantage.
At Disability Help Group, we work with you by providing guidance and expectations to help you through this challenging period of time in your life. Disability is our passion; let us do the work – you have enough on your mind. Contact us online or call us at 800-800-3332 to talk to our disability advocates.
