How we help you with the disabilities application process?
The Social Security Disability process can be complex, taxing, and stressful. Filing on your own can be an intimidating process and take more time, money, and energy.
Hiring us to file your application can optimize your chances of receiving a positive and quick response from the SSA. We eliminate the stress of figuring out what programs you qualify for and help you understand the benefits that you can expect. When applying for disability for PTSD, the last thing you want is to face delays due to incorrect or missing information on your application. We proofread your application several times to fix any discrepancies that can stand in the way of you winning your case.
Social Security's disability listing for PTSD
Primarily, the SSA requires you to satisfy Social Security's new disability listing for post-traumatic stress disorder. Secondly, you should receive a "medical-vocational allowance" to prove to social security that your impairments prevent you from partaking in full-time employment. To fulfill the social security's criteria for the PTSD listing, you must have documented evidence of the following:
- You were exposed to death or threatened death, violence, or severe injury
- You have subsequent re-experiencing of the traumatic events of your life
- You avoid all external reminders of your traumatic event
- You experience disturbances in mood and behavior
- You experience frequent increases in arousal and reactivity, such as exaggerated startle response, disturbed sleep, etc
You must also show SSA that you have extreme limitations in certain areas, such as managing yourself, interacting with others, concentrating on tasks, etc. If you fail to meet the requirements, you may still receive benefits through a medical-vocational allowance.
Why hire a disability attorney?
By hiring an attorney, your chances of getting your application approved increase significantly. Statistical data shows that Social Security is more likely to approve an applicant with legal representation than one who lacks one.
A disability attorney will know the best way to present your case in a favorable light and will relieve you from a ton of stress and burden. During the initial application level, the expert can advise you on the alleged onset date of your disability and argue to the SSA that your condition complies with the requirements state in the blue book. Besides, they can put forth your case's facts in a persuasive and compelling manner. If you face denial from SSA, your lawyer can craft the legal arguments carefully and prove to social security how wrong they are for denying your case.
