Understanding Social Security Disability Decisions

If you suffered a disability and you are considering filing for Social Security Disability benefits, you may be wary of the process because of stories you have heard from friends or family members. However, not every SSD filing takes years or results in multiple denials. By understanding how the Social Security Administration makes its decisions on SSD, you can simplify the process, making it faster and less likely to end in a denial.

The attorneys at Willis Law have years of experience helping clients from throughout Michigan apply for – and obtain – SSD benefits. We will be by your side throughout the process, ensuring that you have a thorough understanding of all it entails.

What You Need To Know About The Social Security Administration

It is important for SSD applicants to remember that the Social Security Administration is a part of the government, and the government likes information. The more evidence you can provide to the SSA to demonstrate your need, the easier it is for its officials to make a decision. At Willis Law, we make sure that the SSA has all the information it needs on every case we present.

It is also important to remember that you may have to wait a long time before a date is set for your hearing. However, sometimes that is not the case, especially in dire circumstances. In one specific case, our firm had a young client who suffered from a debilitating birth defect. Her case was in the appeals stage, and we successfully got her benefits approved without a hearing.

Get The Answers You Need To Your Questions – Get The Benefits You Need

During a consultation with one of the experienced lawyers at Willis Law, you can get the answers you need to all of your questions concerning SSD benefits. We can quickly determine your chances for approval, explain what the SSA looks for in each case and tell you what you can do to improve your chance of obtaining benefits.

We have three office locations − Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and Paw Paw − to ensure that our services are accessible to all the residents of West Michigan. You can schedule a free initial consultation by calling (888) 461-7744 or by emailing us.
