The Truth About Social Security Disability Benefits

Feb 22, 2017 | Social Security

For disabled folks in Indiana, it’s a thin line between making ends meet and barely hanging on. If you’re disabled, you can’t work. If you can’t work, you can’t earn a living. If you can’t earn a living, your only recourse is asking for help. That help should come in the form of Social Security Disability benefits, but the reality is those benefits can be difficult to secure. In fact, more than two-thirds of all initial applications are denied.

Why? Because many applicants don’t fully understand the requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration. To qualify for benefits, you must be unable to do any type of work, not just your chosen profession. For instance, if you can sit at a desk and answer a phone, you probably don’t qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, if you can prove that you are completely unable to work, then you have a chance. Problem is, proving that degree of disability can be difficult on your own, which is why so many folks in Indiana call Stewart & Stewart for help.
