No. 11 – My condition is improving. Should I still proceed on my Social Security Disability claim?
Yes! Many Social Security Disability applicants have medical conditions that get worse, get better, get worse, get better… This cycle can keep on repeating itself and is found in situations like fibromyalgia, back problems, lupus, MS, and depression.
Because your condition may get better and worse, some disability applicants should really think twice about giving up their claim, even when it seems their condition might be improving.
If your condition is improving and you choose not to file an appeal on a claim within the 60-day appeal period, you’ll be forced to start over with a brand new application, which will cause you to start all over again, getting back in line.
Because it takes so long to get a hearing in front of an administrative law judge, we rarely recommend that Social Security Disability applicants stop pursuing their Social Security Disability claim. You never know what your physical or mental condition might be like by the time you get in front of the administrative law judge.
