Social Security claims generally take several, if not many, months to settle. At Tim Daniels Law Services, we strive to strengthen SSDI claims from the beginning. Here is our 3-step system:
1. Obtain clear medical documentation from highly-competent treating doctors.
Why? Because SSA gives more weight to the opinions of such doctors.
2. Obtain documentation from the Utah State Office of Rehabilitation (USOR).
If USOR cannot help our client get into the competitive work force, then we have a stronger case for Social Security Disability Insurance.
3. Prepare a memo requesting that the judge approve the claim without a hearing.
This can happen when clear, strong evidence shows that benefits are warranted. At Tim Daniels Law Services we are dedicated to gathering this evidence. We will also be honest with you about the nature of your claim and whether we believe a hearing will ultimately be necessary. In the case that a hearing is required, we prepare specific questions to elicit helpful testimony from the Vocational Expert.
