Do you know what is being done in your community to protect the citizens from crime? Do you have a crime-watch program? Is there a community website that lists the current investigations and events that may have recently occurred? Law enforcement officials can only do so much when it comes to protecting a community. If your community is not active in protecting itself, crime rates could rise and many residents could find themselves the target or victim of crimes. Visit my blog to find out what you can do as a community to lower crime rates and help the law enforcement officials do their jobs.
When you can no longer work at your job because of a medical problem, you may be able to get some financial help from the Social Security Administration (SSA). In many cases, after the exhaustive process of applying and months and months of waiting, you are denied the benefits you sorely need. It is at this point that many people simply give up. Read on to learn more about why getting some legal support for your appeal is so important to the ultimate success of your claim.
When Deadlines Loom
Once you are turned down for benefits, you have the right to appeal that decision. The process can be difficult and it's just too easy to turn in an incomplete application or miss the deadline for the appeal entirely. From the time you receive your denial letter from the SSA you only 60 days to file the paperwork for the appeal hearing request. If you miss this deadline you could face beginning the entire, lengthy application process all over again. Having legal help on board will help ensure that you won't miss any important deadlines or requests from the SSA for supporting paperwork to help push your claim through.
The Body of Proof
It simply cannot be overstated how important a good, complete set of medical records can be to your SSA claim. The SSA needs to see that you have been in treatment for your medical condition and that you are continuing to have treatment throughout the application process. When you entrust your attorney to acquire the exact items of medical proof you need in a timely manner, you are giving your case the best chances of approval on appeal.
Your Time on Stage
Appearing at an appeals hearing can be an intimidating and stressful situation. After all, so much is riding on the success of this meeting. A Social Security attorney who is experienced in local practices and knows the hearing officers can make or break your case. This attorney will lend you support and advice when your time comes to plead your case at your appeal hearing.
Automatically Improve Your Chances
If you are not already convinced about the importance of having legal representation at your appeal hearing, know that simply having an attorney with you can greatly improve your chances of getting approved for benefits.
