It’s always helpful to have an SSD lawyer in Greensboro assisting you through the Social Security disability process. Whether one has started the process already or is considering it, having legal representation is one the best choices one can make. Here are some tips for preparing for the initial meeting with the lawyer.
Bring All Pertinent Paperwork to the Meeting
Applying for Social Security disability requires a lot of documentation. Most times, applicants get denied because they didn’t include all the paperwork needed to make a determination. Before the initial meeting with an attorney gather all paperwork related to the injury or disability, paycheck stubs, list of medications taken and surgeries performed (or upcoming surgeries needed), and the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all of one’s doctors.
Be Prepared to Divulge Personal Details
The attorney needs to know one’s situation inside and out regarding their disability or injury. They’ll ask questions such as whether or not one has paid into the Social Security system. They’ll want to know how one’s physical limitations affects their ability to work and want to know about the person’s work and education for the last ten years. The more information the attorney has, the better legal advice they can give.
What to Expect from the First Meeting
The first meeting is a get-to-know-you meeting. It’s a chance for the lawyer to get to know the applicant’s situation and for the applicant to get to learn more about the attorney’s approach.
