Screening before you apply
An attorney will help you to find out if you are eligible to claim for SSD benefits. He or she will collect all the relevant medical information and evidence to support your claim, and then inform you of whether or not you meet the SSA’s definition of disability. Your attorney might ask you to take the Benefits Eligibility Screening Tool (BEST).
This test takes just ten minutes, and your information is kept completely anonymous. The BEST test is not an application for benefits. It just lets you know if you might be eligible for benefits. It is also not a guarantee of any benefits. If you do undertake such a test, make sure that all the information you give is as honest and complete as possible. If the information you give is incorrect, the outcome will be an incorrect estimate of your eligibility for benefits. Having Belal Hamideh Law assist you could improve your chances of applying correctly and receiving your benefits.
