Preparation is the key to success for many Philadelphia residents. This is true not only in one’s personal and professional life, but in the courtroom as well.
As discussed recently in this blog, it is vital that those applying for Social Security disability benefits be adequately prepared to prove their eligibility for the benefits. In order to be adequately prepared, there are multiple steps that may be required.
First, the person needs to have all of the documentation supporting their claim available for the Social Security Administration. This includes medical records and other documents that demonstrate the person has a qualifying disability.
The individual also needs to be prepared for any hearings on the disability benefits, including hearings that may be held in an appeal after an initial claim is denied. The individual may need to testify at the hearing, so it is imperative that they be prepared to answer questions about their medical condition, symptoms, medications and level of pain. Questions will also be asked about the person’s ability to do work in light of their medical condition.
