What is Social Security Disability

Social Security disability benefits are government programs devised to help people who are unable to work and make money for themselves due to a permanent disability or disabling condition. There are two categories available for applicants to fall into, Social Security Disability Insurance, SSDI for short, and Supplemental Security Income, commonly known as SSI. Social Security Disability Insurance is typically meant for anyone who has paid into Social Security taxes through working for five of the last ten years. There are different requirements for younger people. The bottom line is in the case of SSDI, even higher earners are eligible for benefits while on the other hand, Social Security Income benefits have inflexible financial requirements and strict rules in order to keep receiving payments.

How a Reynoldsburg Social Security Disability Attorney Can Help

Applying for Social Security disability benefits can be an intimidating process. Having a skilled professional on your side ensures you receive the benefits you deserve. Previous cases show that claimants who hire attorneys are twice as likely to gain access to benefits when compared to those who handle their case themselves. Since the Social Security benefit system is so precise, many prospects find that gathering the necessary information in order to apply can be stressful and complicated.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

In 2019, around 64 million Americans will receive benefits. Over two million people apply every year. Because of this, there are very specific and strict conditions when it comes to who is eligible for benefits. There is a full list of conditions that the Social Security Administration has available online. An example of some illnesses and disabilities included are AIDS, epilepsy, cancer, and autism.

You may be missing out on benefits, so it is important to get a professional opinion as soon as possible or as soon as you are hurt and no longer able to work.

Knowing whether you are eligible or not can be difficult so having a professional opinion is crucial. Reaching out to Hoglund Law for a free case evaluation will help determine your best course of action.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

It is common for first-time applicants to get denied. Rejection of benefits can be overwhelming, and rejection upon reconsideration is frustrating. It is important not to be discouraged. The Social Security Administration has very specific and strict qualifications for applicants so hiring an attorney to help can be the difference in whether you receive your benefits or not.

There are a few conditions in which applicants will be rejected immediately. A common reason first-time applicants are denied can be anything as small as a paperwork error. A few other reasons are if a disability is not perceived as permanent (likely to last less than a year), if your disability is due to drugs or alcohol, and if you are not upkeeping your treatment plan, for example.
