Our last blog post discussed the Social Security Disability (SSD) reevaluation process. Being prepared to enter this process is critical, as the outcome could drastically affect your benefits. If the Social Security Administration (SSA) determines that your disability no longer affects your ability to work, then your benefits may cease altogether. Similarly, if it is discovered that your condition has improved, then your benefits may be diminished. This can wreak havoc on your finances and threaten to throw you into money woes. This is why you may need to consider protecting yourself and your claim when facing reevaluation.
The best way to do this is to gather as much supporting evidence as you can. You should speak with all of your medical providers and gather all available paperwork documenting your medical condition and how it affects your ability to work. Then, you need to apply the law and the SSA’s policies to figure out how to craft a compelling legal argument for the continuation of benefits.
Many Californians choose to seek out help from a qualified legal professional when they find out they are up for reevaluation. Others wait until after their claim has already been negatively affected. Either way, a skilled attorney may be able to help you in your fight to retain your benefits.
