Attending a disability hearing can feel intimidating. When you work with the disability law attorneys at Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, you do not have to worry.

What To Expect – And How To Prepare

If your initial application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) was denied, you may have to attend a disability hearing during your appeal. A hearing takes place before a Georgia administrative law judge. You have the right to appear with your attorney. These are some disability hearing steps that you should complete before the hearing:

  1. Gather your medical records, personal journals and any other documentation
  2. Get professional opinions from medical experts
  3. Review your initial application and other documents
  4. Ask your attorney any questions you have

On the day of your hearing, it is crucial to show up on time. Dress professionally and have a clean appearance. During the hearing, try to remain calm and respectful, even if you feel frustrated by the process. Although you have the right to represent yourself, you have a much better chance of receiving benefits if you work with a disability claims attorney.
