Here are some tips from your St. Louis social security disability attorney for you to remember when preparing for your disability hearing:
You should plan to arrive at the hearing about a half hour prior to the scheduled start of your hearing unless your attorney asks you to arrive at a different time. Your St. Louis social security disability attorney will have reviewed your hearing file prior to the hearing, so you do not need to. Your attorney might want to go over some last-minute preparation before the hearing starts. Whatever you do, do not be late for your hearing.
Take It Seriously
It’s perfectly understandable to feel nervous or anxious about the hearing. However, don’t try to make jokes about your case to your St. Louis social security disability lawyer or anyone else who is at the hearing location. Try not to talk about your case with anyone, as anything you say might be overheard by someone who works for the Social Security agency and taken in the wrong way. Don’t take the chance that someone will think you are joking about or mocking the system.
Cell Phone Etiquette
Naturally, before the hearing starts, you should remember to turn off your cell phone.
