Telling Your Story: How to Prepare for Your Disability Hearing

  • Published: March 27, 2014

Many disability claimants who reach the hearing stage after being denied twice feel get very anxious about the hearing. Sitting in front of a judge in a formal setting and telling your story, hoping that he believes what you say, can be intimidating for many. Your Ocala Social Security disability law office will give you the information and guidance you need to prepare yourself ahead of time.

The Role of Your Disability Attorney

Your attorney from the Ocala Social Security disability law office will likely meet with you some time before the date of the hearing in order to go over the facts of your impairment and the relevant legal issues. Your attorney will try to relieve any causes of concern you might have and make you feel prepared and at ease for the hearing. This will make your testimony more effective.

Ask your Ocala Social Security disability law office about the logistics and procedure of the hearing. You will be better equipped if you have some idea of how the judge will conduct the hearing, what the room looks like and how the proceedings will be recorded. You should also think about exactly what you want to say regarding your education, job history, physical capacity and daily routine. You should testify honestly but accurately about these subjects in order to give the judge a picture of your impairment.

Don’t go into your disability hearing without being prepared by an Ocala Social Security disability attorney. Call CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC at 352.304.5300.
