When pursuing a Social Security Disability (SSD) claim, the significance of medical records cannot be overstated. These documents are the bedrock upon which the Social Security Administration (SSA) builds its understanding of your condition and its impact on your ability to work. Without complete medical records, demonstrating the extent and severity of your disability is an uphill battle.

Social Security Disability is insurance you paid for: This program is not just for the elderly or the wealthy. It’s a lifeline for people from all walks of life, including those who cannot work because of medical conditions. Remember, Social Security is a contributory system. If you’ve worked and paid into the system and can no longer work because of injury or illness, you are entitled to benefits if you qualify.

After the State Agency decides you are not disabled, you will receive a letter saying you are not eligible for disability. After a page of standardized language, your notice may list on the second page what medical evidence the judge had reviewed. But sometimes they list everything and sometimes they list nothing – a staffing issue again. I look at the list of what they had mostly to see if what we submitted is even mentioned but since a denial is the normal result, the most important factors to me are that they issued a decision and that it is dated. We have 60 days to appeal but on occasion there isn’t even a date which means it had not even been finalized but went out anyway.

Often, after an injury is corrected, it is the residual pain that can be disabling. Poor pain control is often the main cause of an inability to maintain full time employment. Pain may restrict your ability to sit for long periods or stand or walk for any distance. These limitations are important to winning your Social Security Disability case.

With over 40 years of experience, Binder and Binder has won thousands of cases involving orthopedic injuries. We know what we’re doing. We know you are in pain and may not be able to take on the government by yourself. That’s our job and that’s why we say, “We’ll deal with the government. You have enough to worry about!”

Representation Matters: Every case is unique and presents its own challenges. Some cases are tougher because of the nature of the person’s disability. We know what specific medical evidence is needed to prove a case of disability and know the rules and regulations concerning complex conditions. At Binder & Binder, we are experienced in handling the most complex cases, and we work to resolve them as early as we can for the client. We review our clients’ cases multiple times before they are ever scheduled for a hearing and develop the medical evidence that we know the Social Security Administration, and if necessary, a Judge will need to see to make a favorable ruling.

Misinformation spreads rapidly, and it is crucial to separate fact from fiction, especially when it comes to something as important as Social Security. Michael Hiltzik, Business Columnist for the Los Angeles Times, recently tackled this issue in his important column, “An Exhaustive Debunking of the Dumbest Myths About Social Security.” This piece not only clarifies common misconceptions but also sheds light on the indispensable role Social Security plays in the lives of millions.

Do Not Give Up: Sometimes, it seems the system is designed to encourage people to give up. The long delays, the forms, and the difficulties communicating with real people at the Social Security Administration. It no doubt encourages many people with valid claims to give up in frustration.

Yes and you should apply. SSD is not an offset of Service Connected Veterans benefits though any income is an offset of non-service connected benefits. If you have been found disabled by the VA system the SSA must consider this decision. Any Vet getting a high rating of disability should be applying for SSD as well. And any Binder & Binder successful client who is a Vet should be considering veteran’s benefits particularly if the injury was service connected. Binder & Binder does not handle veterans cases but a sister company does—let us know and we will be glad to recommend you.

Applying for disability benefits through the Social Security Administration (SSA) can be a long and sometimes frustrating process. When you’re already grappling with a disability, the last thing you want is a denial from the SSA that further complicates your life. This post outlines five reasons your application for disability benefits could be denied, whether you are applying for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income benefits.

1. Incomplete Medical Documentation

The backbone of any disability claim is comprehensive and consistent medical documentation. The Social Security Administration will look for...continue reading https://www.binderandbinder.com/5-reasons-that-you-might-be-denied-for-disability-benefits/

There are a variety of ways to establish disability within the guidelines set forth by the Social Security Administration. Terminal diseases and complete blindness often have quicker turnaround times due to the severity of conditions and general obviousness that such illnesses will not allow an individual to work. The determination of disability is often decided by an analysis of an individual’s ability to work. In addition to senses such as sight and sound, individuals are evaluated based on their ability to tolerate the demands of a competitive work environment. The basic physical demands of competitive employment include, but are not limited to sitting, standing, walking, lifting, and carrying. For individuals with psychiatric conditions, the demands of a work setting often require the ability to understand directions and instructions, complete tasks at a consistent pace, interact with others, and adapt to changes. The ability to perform those activities is considered within the context of an 8-hour workday. With respect to physical activities, if an individual were unable to sit, stand, and/or walk for 8 hours, cumulatively, in an 8-hour workday, the person would be disabled as they are unable to meet the demands of a regular work schedule. Likewise, if an individual’s psychiatric illness interfered with the ability to perform activities for over ⅓ of an 8-hour workday, that person would likely be unable to sustain a full-time work schedule.

The reports of an individual are crucial in obtaining an understanding of a particular illness or the symptoms experienced, but such reports alone will not usually guarantee that a person is, in fact, disabled.

Did you know? Many people think that you’re not allowed to work at all while applying for Social Security Disability benefits. This isn’t necessarily true. You may be able to file for disability benefits if you are still working, but only if your monthly gross earned income is below a certain dollar amount. You can earn up to a maximum amount and still be eligible for SSD.

Heart disease is a serious health problem that affects millions of Americans. It can cause symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, fatigue, and irregular heartbeat. These symptoms can make it difficult or impossible to perform your job duties. If you have a heart condition that limits your ability to work, you may be eligible for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Mental health disorders can impact your daily life in many ways. Some people living with a psychiatric condition may find that there are periods of time during which they can no longer sustain employment. For example, your psychiatric condition may make it difficult for you to interact with others, understand complex instruction or in extreme cases you may find it impossible to leave your house. The Social Security Administration will consider all of these limitations in assessing whether you are entitled to Disability benefits.

It’s easy to see why a representative would be necessary when applying for disability. In the early stages, the state disability agencies seem to be gunning to deny as many cases as possible. It feels like a race to the bottom, where in all outcomes you’ll be in last place. Your doctors have provided all of their records, you attended all of the consultations you needed to, and your doctors even put together thorough narrative reports describing the range of your disabilities and just how debilitating they truly are. And yet, after a year or more of waiting, you receive denials. As representatives, we know this is part of the fight and will stick by your side. We won’t be discouraged when the Administration does what we know it will.

But then, you have a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. The statistics are clear on this – cases are won when an ALJ is the one making a decision. The Social Security Administration’s 2021 Annual Statistical Report states that, in 2020, only 36.1% of cases were won at the initial adjudicative level, 11.1% of cases were won at the reconsideration level, and 57.6% of cases were won at the hearing level or above; this is a huge increase in the percentage of cases granted. Even this number can be misleading, as a small handful of judges deny at disproportionately high rates (though they still grant at a higher rate than at the reconsideration level). You’re not likely to encounter one of these ALJs, but should that happen, rest assured that we are well-prepared to handle such situations. So, what’s the course of action when an otherwise competent judge makes an error?
