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.

Reviewing some other perks of disability benefits

For those who are facing financial hardships because of a physical or mental disability, Social Security Disability benefits can have a significant impact on their quality of life from a financial perspective. They may regain the ability to provide for their loved ones, pay their bills and buy food, for example. However, these are not the only reasons why Social Security Benefits can be so advantageous for those who are disabled. In this post, we will examine some of the other ways in which people in Columbus and across the state of Ohio benefit from Social Security Disability.

Eliminating the stigma of Social Security Disability

There are countless reasons why people push off applying for Social Security Disability, whether they are unsure if a disability or hardship they are struggling with is covered or they have too much stress and not enough free time to move forward with an application. Moreover, some people may decide not to move forward with an application because of the stigma that surrounds disability benefits. For example, they may be told by friends and family members that they do not need disability benefits or made to feel guilty for receiving such benefits.

Will I lose my Social Security disability benefits in 2034?

Is it more important to take care of the elderly or the disabled? This may very well be the question Congress is faced with by 2034 if lawmakers do not take decisive action to prevent the funding deficit the Social Security program is expected to face at this time. This will affect residents in Ohio and other states all across America who rely on Social Security benefits to take care of yourself and your families.

Are you eligible for benefits?

If you've never suffered a disability rendering you unable to work, you might be surprised to learn just how complicated the system can be now that you have a legitimate need to request benefits. The Social Security Administration oversees two of the federal government's largest programs aimed at providing financial assistance to those with disabilities. No matter which program in which you're enrolled, however, there are certain eligibility requirements you must meet before you can get the financial help you need.
