Application Process for Social Security Disability

Attorneys say that application for Social Security disability benefits can be made in person at a Social Security office or online.

However, our Social Security disability lawyers know this can be hard to do when you are confronting a disability which limits what you can do.

Hearing Process


Hearing for Social Security Disability

Our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability lawyers explain that when your request for reconsideration is denied you possess a right to go to a hearing for Social Security Disability benefits.

Lawyers say your testimony at the hearing will be very important. Equally important, and in the opinion of many people according to our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability attorneys, more important, are the medical records.

Our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability attorneys point out this is why it is so important to get all medical records into the Social Security disability file. Lawyers know that at the hearing stage a Social Security disability attorney experienced in conducting presentations before a Social Security Administrative Law Judge can be a real help to you.

Where Does the Social Security Application Hearing Take Place?

Social Security disability lawyers say that hearings usually take place at a Social Security office, but very often the judge is not physically present. Our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability Lawyers explain that hearings by video conference are common. Social Security attorneys explain this often happens if the judge lives in an outlying area and does not wish to travel to an office. This may also be more convenient for you, according to our Stockton and Modesto Social Security attorneys, as the nearest video location may be closer than the regular Social Security office. Disability lawyers say that, although face-to-face interaction is preferable, our Social Security Disability attorneys have extensive experience representing disabled clients at video hearings in Stockton and Modesto .

Stockton and Modesto Social Security Attorneys Outline Possible Questions

Social Security lawyers explain that a judge will want to know what your day is like as a disabled person. In the experience of our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability attorneys some common questions include your ability to get out of bed, stand, sit walk, climb stairs, bend and lift. Social Security disability lawyers say the judge will also ask about any pain you experience doing these physical actions. Our Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability attorneys advise clients to answer clearly and honestly. The hearing is your first and possibly your only opportunity, according to Stockton and Modesto Social Security Disability attorneys, to express the nature of your disability in your own words.
