How to get Disability, tip 2



 
If you receive any type of correspondence or letters from either the social security office, disability determination services, or the hearing office (the office of disability adjudication and review)--make sure you open it, read it, and understand it.

This is crucial because certain letters sent from these agencies will require that a claimant perform a particular action by a certain date.

For this reason, if you receive a written letter from any one of these offices and are not exactly certain what the letter means (or is asking you to do), by all means contact the office that sent the letter. You may feel slightly embarassed about asking what the letter means, but, as the saying goes, it is far better to be safe than sorry. And this is doubly true when it come to Social Security Disability and SSI benefit claims.

Here are some examples of letter types you may receive: 1) a call-in letter asking you to contact the disability examiner within x number of days in order to provide information; 2) consultative medical examination appointment letters; 3) questionaires regarding work history; 4) confirmation letters of actions filed on your case (such as an appeal that was submitted).
