Why is the Administrative Record Important?
Protect Your Future with The Bernstein Law Offices
Of course, every initial long-term disability applicant hopes that his
or her claim will be approved initially without the need of an appeal
or legal action. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. By retaining
a Social Security disability lawyer in Maryland, you can improve the quality
of your claims file and chances of a favorable outcome.
Understanding the Administrative Record
All of the information that you provide to your insurance company becomes
part of a file called the administrative record, which is kept by your
carrier. Should your claim end up in court during an appeal, the administrative
record and all of the evidence and documentation will be used to determine
your claim. The success of your claim depends on what is contained in
this file. It is important to be as thorough, accurate, and detailed as
possible from the very beginning of the application process.
Your administrative record will contain different forms of documentation,
including but not limited to:
- Medical records / evidence
- Employment records
- Vocational records / evidence
You should also be aware that once your case is taken to court, no additional
or new evidence will be allowed to enter your file. This rule only adds
to the significance of having a complete claim that includes all related
medical or vocational documentation.
