Applying for disability as a young adult

When people think about young adults in the workplace, they may envision healthy and physically-active staff members who are fully capable of performing their job duties on a daily basis. Unfortunately, this is not always the reality, and many young adults struggle with various physical and mental disabilities that can interfere with their ability to make a living. Worse, some may feel as if they are unable to apply for disability benefits because of the stigma surrounding these benefits, especially for those who are younger. It is important to set these feelings aside if you are struggling with a disability that prevents you from working.

Do I qualify for SSDI benefits?

Being diagnosed with a disabling condition can cause a lot of fear and uncertainty. If you can no longer work, you might wonder where your next paycheck will come from. How will you pay your bills? How will you put food on the table and provide for your family? The unknowns start to add up.

Dealing with a denied disability claim

People file for Social Security Disability as a result of various physical and mental hardships which have disrupted their lives, whether they resulted from workplace accidents or were caused by some other factor. Unfortunately, these disabilities can leave people with a wide-ranging list of challenges, such as those which are financial in nature (losing the ability to pay rent or take care of bills) or emotional (experiencing unbearable anxiety or running into marital problems due to stressors). Many people apply for SSD with the hope that these benefits will turn their lives around. Unfortunately, a lot of applicants are denied, and it is critical to handle a denied claim properly.

Degenerative disc disease may qualify for SSD

For Ohio residents unable to work due to physical issues, Social Security disability benefits may help supplement funds needed for medical bills and daily expenses. However, there are several eligibility requirements that workers must meet before they qualify. One of the primary considerations is if the issue is on the list of medical conditions the Social Security Administration maintains and if the impairment affects the individual’s ability to continue performing the work completed in the past.

Investigation: SSD claims too quickly reviewed & denied

Putting together an application for Social Security Disability benefits is a lengthy, complex and sometimes painstaking process. It involves coordinating with physicians to procure medical records, filling out extensive forms and other tedious administrative tasks. But if you can no longer work due to a disability and are counting on benefits, you have little choice but to put in the time and effort.
