The Skinner and Associates Way
Social Security Disability Process
At our initial consultation meeting for Social Security disability, we will determine if you have a chance of meeting Social Security’s disability standards. If you do, we will begin the claims process for you. If we do not feel that you meet Social Security’s disability standards, we will tell you! Social Security’s disability standards are difficult to meet.
At a minimum your disability must prevent you from performing any work on a full-time basis in the national economy and must be expected to last at least 12 months.
The application process is complicated and nationwide over 75% of the people who file their initial application are denied. Of those who request an appeal or reconsideration of the decision, only about 15% are approved nationwide. A significant percentage of claimants must appear at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) before they finally receive their benefits. It typically takes over 24 months to have an ALJ hearing scheduled.
Statistically, at every stage, those who are represented by a qualified and experienced professional have a better chance of being approved. For that reason, the vast majority of claimants would benefit from hiring a professional representative to advocate for them.
