If you have recently joined the ranks of the newly disabled, a Chicago Social Security law firm may be able to help you obtain the best possible outcome from your application for Social Security benefits. You may apply in person at a Social Security office, over the telephone, or online. Whichever way you choose, the process will go much easier if you have all the information you need all in one place. The most important document you will need when applying for Social Security benefits is your Disability Report. For that, you will need to gather a lot of facts and details about:

  1. Your Social Security number and contact details
  2. Your medical conditions and how they affect you (Most importantly, you need to explain why they keep you from doing an easy, sit-down job.)
  3. Your employment history
  4. Health care providers and medical records
  5. Drugs and medical tests
  6. Your training and education

On this list, Item 2 is the most important. It is why you need the help of a lawyer. Applicants who seek legal advice have a higher success rate with their applications for disability benefits than those who do not. Think about it. While you are preparing your claim for Social Security benefits, you are probably feeling tired and sick. You may be on medication that dulls your thinking. You need someone with legal knowledge and expertise who has done this before and who has your back.Chicago Social Security law firm - Completing Your Disability Report Checklist
