For the best outcome of your Missouri Social Security Disability claim, keep the below Disability Claim Tips For Missouri and Arkansas Disability Claims in mind.

1 – Don’t wait. Make your application for disability as soon as you are aware you will be disabled for at least a year due to illness or injury. You do not have to wait a year to apply. Be sure and list all the problems you face completing your daily activities. This should include any physical or mental problems, any mobility issues, and any medication side effects.

2 – Plan on filing an appeal. Most initial applications are denied. Do not be discouraged, it does not mean your claim is not winnable just because you have to appeal.

3 – Act fast. You have only 60 days to appeal the decision if your initial application is turned down. (In Arkansas and Oklahoma you must apply for a reconsideration within 60 days and if the reconsideration is denied as most are, you must then file an appeal.

5 – Continue to seek medical care while you are waiting for a decision. Do not skip your doctor appointments.

6 – Be patient. Every office has a different wait time.  The average wait time to a hearing in front of the Administrative Law Judge for a Springfield Social Security appeal is over 11 months.  Camdenton and Lake of the Ozarks cases wait around 14 months (Columbia Mo ODAR)   For Harrison Arkansas (Fort Smith ODAR) the wait is about 8 months (However the additional time for the extra appeal level of Reconsideration is not counted here, so it may likely be a considerably longer wait from your initial denial).
