What is Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability aids people who suffer from disabling conditions by monetary assistance. The Social Security Disability (SSD) System can help individuals by one of two programs. The first program is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This offers help to those who have worked five of the past years and contributed to the Social Security System through taxes. The second program is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This offers help to those who meet the low-income requirement.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

SSD is reserved for those who are unable to work due to a disabling condition that follows them for more than 12 months. To qualify for Social Security Disability, an applicant must prove that they are incapable of performing substantial gainful activity. The Social Security Administration offers two different routes for individuals applying.

The first route is to prove their inability to work because of the applicant’s condition. The second, and more uncommon, route is to meet the qualifications of conditions stated by the Social Security Administration. These conditions include cancer, immune system disorders, skin disorders, cardiovascular conditions, and neurological disorders. Although this is not the complete list, it can be found here.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

There are a myriad of reasons the Social Security Administration rejects applications. Sometimes it’s because of a lack of supporting evidence. Other times it’s because of the length of the condition (lasting less than 12 months) or their use of alcohol or drugs. Whatever the case may be, the applicant has the ability to request an appeal and reverse their rejection.

Although denial is common, it’s better to give yourself the right representation. Applicants with proper representation statistically have a better chance at gaining benefits than applicants without representation. At Hoglund Law, we’ll go over your case with you for free to give you an insight on the complicated process.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

Facing denial can be discouraging and frightening. It can leave the applicant worried about their financial situation and how that affects their family. But denials don’t have to be permanent.

If an applicant is denied, they can request an appeal. This must be done immediately, within a 60-day deadline. The applicant can do this themselves, even if they have an attorney, because the appeal request needs to be on record as soon as possible.

Even if you have already requested an appeal, a Social Security Disability attorney can properly prepare you for the next step. Having a SSD lawyer on your side gives you the best chance to receive benefits, especially during a hearing. They hold the ability to raise objections, present supporting evidence sufficiently, and provide legal arguments for your case. At Hoglund Law, clients get the best care possible. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to make sure your case is handled in the best possible way. Call Hoglund Law today for a free case evaluation.

How to apply for Social Security Benefits in Mequon

To file for Social Security Benefits, all an applicant needs to do is call, go online, or visit the nearest social security office in person at 1017 W Glen Oaks Lane Suite 172 Mequon, WI 53092. However, if you choose to file in person, be sure to give yourself anywhere from 25 minutes to an hour and a half.

Applicants must obtain records of their last 15 years of employment, any and all contact information for hospitals and doctors, and any medications that are prescribed to the applicant for the condition. All this information will give the SSA more of an idea of how the condition impacts the applicant and will strengthen your claim.

Giving all the information related to a condition can give the SSA a way to better evaluate your case. It’s important to note that denials can happen. They, however, can be appealed. Understanding when to appeal and what other information is needed can be difficult to maneuver, but Social Security Disability lawyers are always available to clear things up, especially at Hoglund Law.
