Apply for Disability Benefits
Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be difficult. Many individuals do not enjoy admitting that they need the help, and most are unsure of how to proceed. Unfortunately, though, many who apply for the first time find that their hard-fought application has been turned down. This, sadly, seems to have several causes.
The hard truth of the matter is that your SSD application was likely rejected because of an issue with the paperwork. The application is lengthier than some might expect, and a wrong box checked can make the difference between an accepted claim and one that is denied.
If you have been denied, try to go over your paperwork carefully and submit again as soon as possible — you may be surprised by the results.
The reason for denial may have also resulted from your arguments. You do have to present a compelling argument for your total disability, including medical information.
If you have not consulted a doctor, failed to get the proper paperwork or simply submitted an argument that does not hold up to scrutiny, your petition was likely denied. As such, it is always wise to consult an attorney with SSD experience.
There is also the terrible truth that those working for Social Security are not perfect. Your application could have gotten lost or mixed up with another’s application.
There are even some that work in the offices that simply will not approve one’s first application. It is always necessary, then, to make sure that you appeal any decision and apply again.
