How Your Doctor Can Help Your SSDI Claim Get Approved

If you have a disability, you're not alone. In the US, approximately 25%, or 61 million adults, report a disability. If you have previously worked and paid Social Security taxes and your daily activities are affected by your physical or mental impairment, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Payments. Your benefit will be based on your earnings and tax history if you worked for many years and paid Social Security taxes before becoming disabled. To qualify, Tampa Social Security Disability Lawyer, Mike Murburg has some advice: “Ask your physician for help filling out forms, communicating the diagnosis and reporting the information. Avoid phrases such as "I can't do things because of the pain." Be specific and detail what you cannot do due to your disability, such as not being able to open doors at work, and not being able to stand for longer than a half hour due to leg pain.” When applying, the advice of an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can prove to be invaluable towards getting your claims paid. Mike Murburg has spent decades practicing one thing: Social Security disability law. He can help you at every stage of the process. Let him be there for you.
