Many people will, at some point in life, find themselves disabled and facing a complete inability to work. These people will be searching for answers, chief among which might be “How will I support myself and my family financially”? If you are unable to work and earn an income, the answer to this question might not be all that easy. That is where Social Security Disability comes in.
An applicant for SSD benefits can be approved to receive those benefits if they provide the right information to the Social Security Administration. This information should include the details regarding how the disability started, when it started and how it is keeping the applicant from maintaining gainful employment. As many of our readers would likely guess, this means that quite a bit of medical evidence needs to be included in the initial application for benefits.
Unfortunately, many people just don’t know what to include in an application for SSD benefits and what to leave out. Depending on the medical condition in question, there may be some very specific points that the Social Security Administration is looking for in order to approve an applicant to receive SSD benefits.
At our law firm, we work with our clients to attempt to make sure that they have the right information included in their initial application for benefits. This initial application is crucial – approximately 60 percent of such applications are denied, for a wide variety of reasons.
