If you were recently injured or diagnosed with a serious medical condition
that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, then it
is very important that your Social Security application get approved.
Since the application process is complex and lengthy, you cannot afford
unnecessary and untimely delays.
When applying for Social Security Disability benefits, you have the right
to use the services of an attorney who can guide you through the application
process. The Social Security Administration deals with lawyers on a regular
basis, and they will work with your lawyer just as they would work with you.

hearing or conference;

Once you choose a lawyer to represent you, you must notify the Social Security
Administration in writing as soon as possible. In order to do this, you
will need to fill out Form SSA-1696-U4,
Appointment of Representative.
Applying for Social Security Disability
It is important to apply for disability benefits as soon as you learn that
you are disabled. It can take between 3 and 5 months to process an application,
so there is no time to waste.
To apply for SSD benefits, you will need to provide a wealth of information,
including your Social Security number, your birth certificate, all of
the names and phone numbers of your doctors, the names of your medications,
laboratory test results, all of your medical records, your W-2 form and so on.
In addition to the above, you will need to fill out forms about your medical
condition and how it affects your ability to work. Once you supply this
information, doctors and disability specialists from the SSA will ask
your doctors about your condition, and they will consider all of the facts
of your case before making a decision.
Since you are relying on a favorable decision, it is vastly important that
you be as prepared as possible when applying for SSD benefits.
