DIY (Do-It-Yourself Disability Claims)

DIY, it’s a popular acronym, do-it-yourself. If you are considering a DIY approach to filing your disability claim, Ms. Becer hopes you read these thought provoking questions about filing for disability on your own and let her do the work for you:

  • Are you well enough or strong enough to handle all the online forms and paperwork?
  • Do you know if you are including everything you should?
  • Do you know what you should put down as the date your disability began?
  • Do you know why the onset date of disability matters?
  • When you’re on short term or long term disability from work, and your insurance company offers to help you apply for Federal disability benefits (DIB), do they have your best interests in mind?
  • Why do the forms contain lots of questions that are repetitious and don’t seem relevant?
  • Did you know that the person at the claims office or State Agency handling your claim has a key role in the ultimate decision?
  • Did you ever think that the ability to navigate the disability process can be viewed as functionally relevant to your physical or mental disability?
  • How can those requested reports from a friend or relative help or hurt your claim?
  • What does your work activity from 10-15 years ago have to do with your current disability?
  • Why do they want to send you to one of their doctors when you have your own?
  • How do you know if they received all of your medical documentation?
  • Do you know how much money you will get if you win?

Remember, all disability claim attorney fees are on a contingency percentage, meaning Ms. Becer does not get paid unless you win.
