When I started helping people obtain disability benefits, I said the same thing as everyone else, “Get denied twice, file for a hearing, then call me.”
After years of working with people who I who knew were disabled, but had been fighting on their own for years, I came to the conclusion that, for many people, there is a better way.
Hi, my name is Ryan Kirzner, I am an attorney licensed in Ohio and Kentucky. Since 2005 I have focused my practice on representing clients seeking social security disability and SSI benefits. After obtaining benefits for hundreds of people, what I have learned is that the system is extremely difficult to understand and work through. Social security also does a very poor job explaining what is important to find someone disabled.
So many people who should win benefits don’t even start a claim, give up a claim, or misunderstand how to win a claim. Sometimes they even make mistakes which delay or actually harm their case. The most recent numbers show that, in Ohio about 70% of the claims are denied at the first level; the second level is 90% denial; the third level is actually a hearing and the numbers show that, nationally, about 62% of people win their claim at the hearing level.
So in 2009, we began to offer to help clients in filing their initial claim. While most clients still come to us after they have already filed a claim, we are helping more and more people earlier in the process. Year after year clients have thanked us for helping them win their claim faster than they ever thought possible. Click here for Nine Reasons we say “don’t wait to be denied” to call our office.
There are certain things which are important to social security and other information which they basic ignore. Clients we work with know and understand the difference. As a result, even when we cannot win a person’s claim earlier in the process, our goal is that they have cases which are better prepared to win at the hearing level. Six things you need to know to win a disability case.
But beyond just knowing what is needed to win, we help our clients create a strategy early in the process for winning a social security disability claim. Yes there are things you can do to help your case! Find out five tricks to winning your disability claim.
For our clients, filing for social security disability is not a goal. It is the result of a series of difficult decisions. The mere fact they are in the position that they need to file a claim may be embarrassing, depressing or humiliating. When they then get denied by social security, it only adds to the embarrassment. This situation often leads to people having incomplete or incorrect statements or information in the file which can hurt them in a hearing. Before you file, learn the five most common mistakes people make when filing.
