About This Site

Applying for Social Security disability and SSI disability benefits can be difficult due to how long a claim can take and the high chance of being denied. But applicants who are denied can learn about the system and file an appeal. 

The purpose of this site is to distribute information that is typically impossible to get from the representative taking your claim for SSD and SSI benefits. To win an appeal, you need to know the particular symptoms and limitations that the Social Security Administration wants to see in someone with your medical condition, and you need to have your doctor fill out a residual functional capacity form that confirms you have many of these limitations.
