Most Social Security Disability claimants would do well to have a disability advocate handle their cases for them. A disability advocate is someone who is trained specifically to help get qualified Social Security Disability claims approved.
More than two thirds of initial claims for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. In part, this is because the Social Security Administration has very tightly defined what exactly is considered a disability. Basically, according to the SSA, you are only disabled if you can not perform any kind of work you have done before and can’t reasonably be expected to able to do any other work which is available.
