Social Security Disability Lesson # 105:

Sometimes a good attitude makes a big difference.

During a recent disability hearing the Administrative Law Judge asked the claimant questions about his medical records.

There were references to malingering (faking) and being a hypochondriac.

The person answered clearly, respectfully, and in a reasonable manner.

The Judge accepted his answers and granted him Social Security Disability benefits.

It was a good lesson.

Answer honestly.

Do not get angry.

Explain as best you can what was going on at the time.

It can make the difference between a good outcome, and a disaster.
