Having much experience as a Nevada disability advocate, I can tell you that dealing with the Social Security Administration (SSA) is a challenging undertaking. It can be hard and frustrating work, take a long time, and require extensive training and experience to become effective.
The extent of the challenge involved in working with Social Security Administration is not readily apparent, for the initial application appears simple and SSA invites claimants to apply on their own.
But pitfalls arise, and most initial applications are denied. Claimants who are unaware of how the system works are likely to give up at this point, which is a common mistake fatal to your claim.
Instead, you should spend some time learning how Social Security Disability evaluation process works, determine if your impairment is severe enough to qualify, and speak with a knowledgeable Las Vegas, Nevada disability attorney or advocate early on.
