Filing Disability in Memphis? Our How-To Guides Can Help
If you need to file for disability in Memphis, you may have no idea where to start.
As a Memphis SSDI lawyer, I’ve met hundreds of people in your shoes. It’s an incredibly confusing process, and a lot of people worry they’re missing something. Or they get something wrong without realizing it, and the SSA denies their claim.
In fact, the SSA denies the majority of SSDI claims, for all sorts of reasons. And while you can and should appeal in that situation, how much better if you can turn in a great application on your first try?
That’s why I’ve developed free resources to help our clients, and anyone, apply for SSDI. Below you’ll find information about the application process, appeals process, and how to get started with your claim.
Our Guide to Applying for SSDI
Ever wished someone would just explain in simple terms exactly what to expect from the SSDI application process? If you’re preparing an application, download our free report “An Honest Guide to Disability.“
In it, we outline:
- How to know if you qualify
- Steps to prove your medical condition
- The most common reasons the SSA denies people’s claims
- Common missteps when applying on your own
- and more
With this guide, you’ll have an easy to read, step-by-step process to build a strong application.
The SSDI Appeals Process: Our Free Report
Even if you follow every single step above, the reality is you still might have to appeal your claim. In fact, most people who apply for SSDI get denied. When that happens, you have 60 days to appeal, and you should really use an attorney.
The appeals process is very different from your initial application. To help you better understand how it works, our Memphis SSDI lawyers put together a free report called “Your Guide to the Social Security Disability Appeals Process.”
In this comprehensive free report, we explain why you might have been denied, what you can do about it, and what to expect from the appeal.
The Main Links and Information You’ll Need
The SSA oversees disability and is the only place to put in an application.
In addition, as you prepare your application, you’ll want to have other information on hand, including:
- medical records
- doctors’ names and contact information
- important dates related to your injury or disability, and
- work records
Our free report about applying for SSDI will help you get a sense of what you need to gather to prove your case. It can take some time, but it’s well worth it to compile this information in advance so you don’t cut corners and have a better chance of success.
