A variety of questions may pop up when you apply for Social Security disability benefits that your Social Security disability attorney may be able to answer. Additionally, your Social Security disability attorney may warn you about potential issues that may pop up.
In some situations, a Social Security disability attorney may be representing a claimant who has good days. These days may be associated with the claimant being able to stand, walk or sit for longer periods of time than on bad days.
Your Social Security disability attorney may warn you about a judge’s interest in determining how many so-called good days that you have. Rather than providing an evasive answer, try to keep track of the number of good and bad days so that you can inform the judge of the number when he or she asks about it.
Another tactic that your Social Security disability attorney may recommend is providing details to the court. Be able to discuss your limitations and the different degrees of pain and symptoms that you experience on good and bad days. Practice answering questions with your Social Security disability lawyer to prepare. Be sure that you do not minimize your condition or exaggerate it. The goal is for the administrative law judge to have a clear understanding of your condition.
