Social Security disability wait hits record length

It may be more important than ever to understand how to fill out an application for Social Security disability benefits and to understand eligibility requirements and appeals options. Individuals who have applied for benefits, requested the first level of appeal and are now seeking a hearing before an administrative law judge are waiting a record amount of time for a hearing which is the second level of appeal in the application process.

Electronic medical records coming to more disability claims

Part of the application process for Social Security disability benefits is providing medical records. When applying for Social Security disability benefits, it is important to understand the requirements for eligibility and know what is required as part of the application process. The Social Security Administration recently partnered with a major medical care provider in a neighboring state for the electronic transfer of medical records, with the patient's consent, for purposes of Social Security disability applications.
