An Adrian SSDI Attorney Can Help You Win Disability BenefitsThe answer to the question, “Who makes the decision about a disability claim?” is far from simple. A number of factors come in to play, and depends on the level at which your disability claim is being considered. The longer your disability claim is processed through the system, the more people are involved and making decisions regarding whether or not you are medically eligible to receive social security disability benefits. The process itself does not change much in the first two stages, but once a disability claim reaches the appeal process there is significant change.
The SSA Offices for Adrian, Michigan are located:

Or call the Social Security Administration’s national toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213.
At the initial application phase, and should your claim be denied, in the reconsideration phase, the decision about your disability claim is made by a Disability Examiner at the state level agency which adjudicates disability claims filed through the Social Security Administration. The only difference between the initial level and reconsideration stage is at the reconsideration stage a Level II Disability Examiner is now evaluating your claim – but they are not making the decision on their own.
Disability Examiners cannot close a disability claim without a consultation with medical consultants or physicians on the staff and in the same office as the Disability Examiner. The physician or medical consultant must sign off on a disability claim or it cannot be decided or closed by the Disability Examiner. Additionally, the unit supervisor and the assistant supervisor can overturn a decision at their discretion, and a disability claim is further scrutinized by a quality control specialist and may be reviewed by the Disability Quality Branch where cases are pulled and reviewed on a random basis.
Adrian Disability Benefits
Many eyes are on a disability claim, and residents of Adrian should keep that in mind when filing a social security disability claim. At any point a disability claim can be denied, and the most common reason for a denial is inadequate medical evidence. An application submitted without complete information regarding work history or current contact information for the medical health providers you have seen for your illness or condition will also be denied.
Preparation to file a social security disability claim is necessary in order to gain an approval for disability benefits. All information is carefully reviewed and scrutinized by a team of people who see hundreds of disability claims every day and will be able to pinpoint any inconsistencies or missing information and will render their judgment accordingly. Therefore, Adrian residents need to take their time with the application and make sure all information is filled out completely and included on the initial application for the best chance of an approval before the disability claim reaches the hearing level.
