How We Appeal Your Social Security Case
1. Demanding documents from the Insurance Company. We write the insurer demanding a copy of: the plan; the policy; the SPD; the claim file; all documents relied on by the insurer in denying the claim; any internal guidelines used by the insurer; the reports of all medical and vocational reviewers; audio or videotapes of the claimant; and notes of any telephone conversations.
2. Demanding Specific Reasons for Denial. By law the insurer is obligated to provide specific reasons for their denial. We write the insurer demanding that they provide us with a more specific description of the reasons for denial. Often the initial denial letter only states that there was insufficient objective evidence in support of your claim.

What are Marked Mental Limitations? – Social Security Disability
When your physician fills up and mental residual functional capacity and rate your limitation as moderate, most ALJs will ignore the limitations and the District Courts that looked at that question usually stated that moderate does not mean inability to work. The SSA does define marked limitation as preventing work. Unfortunately most psychiatrist use marked as extreme limitation yet the Social Security regulation clearly define Mark as:” means more than moderate but less than extreme” This can effect your Social Security Disability claim.
Marked means interfere seriously with your ability to function independently, appropriately, effectively, and on a sustained basis.
