Do You Suffer From A Musculoskeletal Or Autoimmune Condition?
Some cases are more straightforward, such as those involving medical conditions that meet one of the Social Security Administration’s listings of impairments. But other cases are extremely complex, such as those that involve pain, fatigue and hard-to-measure symptoms, including fibromyalgia.
At McKown & Myers, LLP, we know how to handle even the most challenging claims for Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
You Must Provide Proper Documentation. We Can Help You Get It.
To succeed, we must make certain that the documentation clearly shows that your medical condition meets the Social Security Administration’s definition of disability. One of the most important things we do is help you work with your doctor.
We can help you:
- Talk to your doctor
- Strengthen your claim
- Apply for benefits
- Appeal a denial
You may also want to keep a calendar or journal in which you record your symptoms and how they impact your daily life. This is not a document that will be used during your hearing. The goal is to make certain that when you go to your doctor, you can report precisely what you are going through, and the doctor can reflect that in your medical records, which will be used during your hearing.
This becomes even more critical when your medical condition is not as easily pinned down and named. These are the conditions that frequently lead to denials. We know how to appeal these denials to help you get the benefits you need.
