What is Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability  SSD has been created to offer a safety net for those unable to work due to a disabling condition. SSD aids those individuals and protects them from income loss. For those individuals, they are able to apply to get these benefits. Applicants can follow one of two paths. The first is called Social Security Disability Insurance SSDI. This program helps those who have contributed to the Social Security System through taxes by working for at least five of the past 10 years. The second path is called Supplemental Security Income SSI. This program is built for those who are of a low income. This path is not reliant on taxes but a financial criterion within the household.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

If you suffer from a medical condition that leaves you unable to work, you may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability. The Social Security Administration SSA has strict guidelines for those applying, however. To be eligible, the applicant must be able to prove their inability to perform their work because of their ailment. This is the most common route to take to be approved for benefits.

Another, more uncommon, route is to meet the qualifications for conditions outlined by the SSA. With this route, applicants have the opportunity to be automatically accepted. Some outlined conditions include the following: immune system disorders, senses and speech issues, neurological disorders, musculoskeletal, and malignant neoplastic disorders. The complete list can be found here.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

The requirements that disqualifies an applicant from aid are ongoing use of drugs and alcohol, partaking in fraud, a condition in which the duration lasts fewer than 12 months, and refusal to cooperate. To better understand how to avoid denial and the best course of action for your case, schedule a free consultation with a Social Security Disability attorney at Hoglund Law.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

Although denial can happen, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to deal with. With the Social Security Administration, denial is more common than you may think, but a denial can be approved after some tweaking to your file. Adding more information and evidence can reinforce your claim. By appealing, you can show the SSA what they missed the first time.

Usually applicants get denied the first two rounds and, on their third attempt, they get a hearing. This hearing allows a judge to hear your story and can change their minds on your application. This is not as easy as it seems. Having a trusted attorney at your side can really benefit you and your case. Our proficient attorneys at Hoglund Law can direct you in the right way during this process and lead you to the benefits you and your family needs.
