Loved One Arrested? What You Should Know About Posting Bail

One night I was sitting at home relaxing when my husband called me from jail. He told me he had been arrested and asked me to post bail. I had no idea how bail worked. I didn't know if I should do it, what it would cost or how to go about doing it. I created this website because I know that others may find themselves in the position that I once found myself in. I hope my information helps you make a decision on whether or not to post bail, and teaches you what to expect should you do so.

What SSDI Applicants Should Understand About The Reconsideration Review

After being turned down for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), claimants in some states go through a reconsideration review. To find out what happens at this stage in your case, read on.

Your denial letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA) will inform you of your options after being denied benefits. Some applicants must request an appeal hearing but many will have their cases evaluated by a reconsideration review.

The Reconsideration Review

From the time you apply for benefits from the SSA until you finally hear from them can take months. You may have given up just when the denial letter arrives. However, the reconsideration review is a faster process than the original application. The time, however, varies based on the caseload. You must request a reconsideration review from the SSA. The application letter asks you to state the reasons why you feel your case is worthy of another look.

Have Things Changed?

Medical conditions are not static—they can change. Additionally, some applicants may have new medical conditions that have arisen after the initial application was submitted. The reconsideration review is your opportunity to let the SSA know more about your medical condition. Go into as much detail as possible about all your medical problems.

Some medical problems trigger more conditions. For example, applicants suffering from diabetes can lose their extremities because of decreased circulation. That means you might be suffering from neuropathy in your extremities or even the loss of a toe or foot. The SSA needs to get an updated picture of your current health issues and this review is the opportunity for doing that.

What Are Your Chances?

Unfortunately, the reconsideration review is not a guarantee that your benefits will be approved. However, applicants that can show how their conditions worsened considerably have a better chance of being approved for this review. If you are turned down after the reconsideration review, you have another opportunity to challenge the results at an appeal hearing. How you prepare for the hearing makes a big difference.

Get a Lawyer Involved

Social Security lawyers can help with both your reconsideration review paperwork and with your appeal hearing. They will form a case based on the reasons for the denial and gather proof of your medical conditions. They will also show how the conditions affect your ability to perform work tasks. Don't take a chance with your final opportunity to get benefits. Speak to a Social Security lawyer and find out more.
