Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits provide more than financial assistance to Americans who can no longer work due to their disability; they provide a second chance at life. If you’re disabled and can’t work, only you know how demoralizing and frightening it can be not knowing how you’re going to survive without a regular paycheck. If you could work, you would. But the reality is your disability has robbed you of your ability to do so, which is why you applied for SSD benefits.
The good news is SSD benefits are available to folks in your exact situation. The bad news is securing benefits can be extremely difficult on your own. If your application is like more than two-thirds of initial applications, you’ll be denied benefits on your first attempt. You can of course appeal that denial, but that could take a while, and if you make the same mistakes on your appeal application, you can expect the same result when the decision comes back.
That’s why it’s important that you consult with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney if you’ve been denied benefits.
