You need to understand the role of an EEOICPA advocate and why you need one before you fill out any paperwork.
Do you know the advantages of working with an EEOICPA advocate? While filling out paperwork may seem like a straightforward task, the government makes it as complicated as possible. Because of this, many eligible workers don’t get the compensation they deserve. Your job made you sick, and now you should do whatever it takes to claim your benefits.
One Tiny Mistake Equals a Big Denial
Did you know that the Department of Labor rejects nearly 50 percent of EEOICPA claims? That number should astound you. The majority of these rejected claims are valid and correctable. But, if the government identifies even the smallest mistake, they won’t think twice about mailing you a denial letter. The odds are not in your favor if you apply on your own.
The truth is no matter how smart you are, government forms are difficult to understand. You almost need a translator to make sense of them all! Even if you think everything is in order, you may be mistaken. Instead of waiting for a denial letter, you should ask for expert help the first time around.
Advocates Understand the Laws
Do you know which benefits you can claim? Do you fall under Part B or Part E? Why is this all so complicated? Filing an EEOICPA claim may frustrate you. There are so many forms to fill out. You may also have to find specific records, like a birth certificate, proof of employment, or medical documents. Even if you do everything by the book, you could still miss one tiny detail.
However, if you obtain help from an advocate, you don’t have to worry. These professionals understand the ins and outs of the EEOICPA program. They will examine the specifics of your case and go over all the paperwork with you. By working with an advocate, the government is more likely to approve your claim.
Compassionate Help After a Denial
You fill out all the forms, dot every “i” and cross every “t,” but you still receive a rejection letter in the mail. Don’t throw in the towel just yet. As a victim, you have every right to reapply and appeal your denial. However, you shouldn’t attempt to do it alone.
An EEOICPA program advocate will evaluate your paperwork and determine the reason for your denial. They will then works with you and help you refile every form. Instead of giving up, your advocate will be there during every step of the process. They will fight for every dollar you deserve.
