TIP #8: Remember that your disability adjudicator is not trying to deny your claim.

She may have a hundred other people's claims to give the same attention to. Remember it is much easier for your adjudicator to allow your claim. Denials take time. She is truly most interested in giving you the fairest and most timely decision she can. She does not have a vested interest in the outcome. There is no quota of denials she has to reach each day, and there is no one keeping track of denials to reprimand your poor evaluator if she doesn?t do enough of them. She is happiest when the information required is in file and she is able to make a correct decision, whatever it is. Again, allowances are faster to do than denials, so if anything, your evaluator is looking for ways to allow your claim.
