Know your rights
In the United States, the Social Security Program was created in 1935 (42 U.S.C. 401 et seq.) to provide old age, survivors, and disability insurance benefits to workers and their families. Unlike welfare, social security benefits are paid to an individual or his or her family at least in part on the basis of that person's employment record and prior contributions to the system.
While the Social Security Act (federal law) governs an applicant's right to benefits, state substantive law governs some of the family relationship issues that may bear on that right.

We are Results Driven
Social Workers, therapists and physicians practice their disciplines hoping to successfully diagnose and treat people with illnesses. Contrary to those goals, however, the Social Security law requires patients and their providers to prove that their patients are not doing well.
documentation is Essential
The proof in Social Security and SSI disability claims begins with the objective medical findings in the treating physician’s office chart. Office notes are often given more evidentiary weight than narrative reports because they are made at the time of the visit and are seen as more reliable.
