Those circumstances include: the actions of the SSA misled you, you had physical or mental limitations that prevented you from submitting the evidence earlier, some other unusual or unexpected circumstance beyond your control prevented you from submitting the evidence. If one of these circumstances exist, then the ALJ has the option to accept the evidence if there is a reasonable possibility that the evidence, alone or when considered with other evidence of record, would affect the outcome of your claim.
In order to avoid problems with submitting evidence, please understand that there is a firm and fast deadline for you to submit all medical evidence and other written evidence in your disability case. All evidence is due 5 BUSINESS DAYS prior to the hearing. To be safe, that means all of your evidence must be submitted to the judge at least ONE WEEK prior to your scheduled hearing date. If you need help submitting evidence or preparing your case for hearing in front of a judge, contact Cannon Disability Law. We will be happy to help you and answer your questions.
