Common Mistakes Disability Claimants Make

  • Not applying soon enough and months of eligibility can be lost.
  • Missing the 60-day appeal deadline. 
  • Accepting a later onset date that reduces the award of back benefits.

  • Not making sure that all your medical information is in your file.
  • Not keeping track of the status of your claim.
