Oklahoma Social Security Disability
To become entitled to any type of Social Security benefit an application must be filed with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Once an application is filed, it becomes a claim for benefits. An application can be filed in person at a Social Security office, by telephone, or on the internet. It is important to apply as soon as possible after it appears you will be unable to work for an extended time. We can provide you with helpful information about applying for benefits.
When you apply, you will be asked for basic information concerning your age, education, and work experience, and most importantly about the physical and/or mental problems you have which you believe keep you from working and treatment sources. This information is necessary to develop and decide your claim. The medical portion of your disability claim is developed and decided by an Agency of your State which has a contract with SSA to do this. It’s procedure involves gathering medical evidence and deciding the nature and severity of your impairment(s).
Nationwide statistics show that about 38% of disability claims are approved on initial application. You have 60 days to appeal if your claim is denied. You should seriously consider seeking representation to assist you with the appeal. Better yet, contact us before you apply and we will give you guidance and answer your questions.
