When You Need To File For Social Security Disability Benefits
*Additional medical records may need to be provided to the Social Security Administration. Since we handled your Workers’ Compensation claim and/or Third Party Case our office will most likely already have those records. This means you will not have to pay for the records again. We will request a reconsideration of your decision on your behalf, and provide the records we have to the Social Security Administration. We will work to obtain as many additional medical records as we can to further demonstrate your need for benefits. Our investigation may reveal medical conditions that we can add to your claim which may increase your chances of approval. So contact us right away.*
