Somewhat along the lines of my previous blog entry, yesterday I received a fairly rapid approval on an application for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits. The claimant was a 58 year old former CEO of a nonprofit.
In a relatively short period of time, I was able to submit narrative, functional, and progress reports from two orthopedists and a physiatrist that detailed the claimant’s medical condition. This was another claimant who followed our advice regarding ways to work with doctors to get favorable evidence quickly. The medical records provided ample support for the doctors’ opinion that the claimant lacked a sedentary work capacity, and those opinions were obviously accepted in approving SSD benefits.
Claims processing is usually a little slower during the summer months. Nonetheless, obtaining and submitting the necessary medical evidence expeditiously can still facilitate a relatively prompt decision.Previous Next
