What is Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability includes two programs which administer aid to qualifying individuals suffering from disabling conditions. Both programs are run by the Social Security Administration, known as the The Social Security Administration (SSA) is a U.S. government agency that administers social programs covering disability, retirement, and survivors' benefits. It was created in 1935 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.. One of the programs, Social Security Disability Insurance, provides relief to people who have worked for a set number of years and thus have contributed to the Social Security system through taxes. Alternatively, Supplemental Security Income is administered to individuals demonstrating financial need.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability
You may qualify for Social Security Disability in one of two ways. First, you may automatically qualify for benefits if your condition meets all the criteria for a listed condition as detailed by the SSA. The criteria is very difficult to meet but this may still be the best way to pursue approval. Alternatively, many individuals choose to prove eligibility by demonstrating an inability to perform substantial gainful activity as a member of the workforce.
Some of the conditions provided by the SSA with attached criteria include lupus, asthma, anxiety, depression, autism, dermatitis, and cardiovascular conditions. An exhaustive list of conditions can be found here.
It can be challenging to navigate SSA regulations and select the most advantageous avenue for proving eligibility. This is why Hoglund Law is right here in Beachwood to help you determine a course of action.
Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability
The cause of a denial is very case specific and can be difficult to discern. Reasons range from miniscule technicalities to substantial roadblocks. Often, people are denied simply because they are missing a few medical records.
However, it is important to consider the reasons people are denied that result in ultimate denial. If drug and alcohol use contribute to your condition, you have a previous conviction, refuse to cooperate, or have participated in fraud, your case will be denied.
If you aren’t sure how SSA regulations will impact your chances of being approved, contact Hoglund Law for a free case evaluation today.
Have You Been Denied Social Security Disability?
It can feel like a truly devastating moment to receive a denial from the SSA when you are a qualifying individual for benefits. Too many people give up hope after initial denial when this is a common occurrence and usually can be reversed by appealing. You might simply be missing documents to adequately prove your condition. The good news is our team of Social Security Disability attorneys are skilled in zooming in on the weaknesses in your application and determining the best way to improve your case before appealing.
With the help of an experienced attorney, you can walk into an appeal hearing with a stronger application and an attorney ready to fight for you. At a hearing you will have the opportunity to add supplemental information to your case, cross examine witnesses, and introduce legal arguments for your case. With an attorney, you are statistically more likely to be approved than if you represent yourself. To increase your chances of being approved and to do so with ease, contact Hoglund Law in Beachwood.

You may apply for benefits online, over the phone, or in person at your local Social Security office. The Social Security office nearest you is located at 3591 Park East Drive, Beachwood, Ohio 44122.
You will want to gather the following documents: your work history dating back 15 years, a complete list of condition-related prescriptions you have used, and the names, addresses, and contact information of any doctors, clinics, or hospitals you have visited for treatment of your condition.
Bear in mind that you can still file without having all these documents in hand. You may add documents to your file after you have filed but you will never be able to make up for time spent not filing.
