Chances of Winning Disability Benefits Reduced Without an Attorney?
Can an unrepresented disability claimant win their case? Well, good luck. Most claimants don’t know anything about the 5 Step Sequential Evaluation which we’ve outlined in this website .
A disability attorney such as St. Petersburg | Tampa Social Security Disability attorney, Sharon Barrett, will obtain your medical records, review them and develop any medical evidence necessary to establish that you have restrictions and limitations that prevent you from returning to your former occupation.
Further, she will develop the evidence to show that there is not a job that exists in the national economy based on your age, education and transferable skills.
Most unrepresented claimants think that they will eligible for Social Security Disability benefits because they can’t find work or no one will hire them. That isn’t the standard that you have to meet to be entitled to Social Security Disability benefits.
Unrepresented claimants have little chance to win at a hearing simply because they do not understand what they have to prove to prevail.
Sharon Barrett has written the go to guide for Social Security Disability claimants “Your Rights to Social Security Disability Benefits.”
