Why would your Social Security Disability claim be denied?

After waiting for months for a decision on your Social Security Disability claim, the last thing you want to receive is a letter saying that your claim was denied. Unfortunately, it happens frequently, even to people who are genuinely disabled.

Starting an Indiana disability claim

When we are able-bodied, the prospect of becoming disabled in the future is never something that we seriously consider. However, disability is a very common thing and something that happens to many of us. In fact, research has estimated that 25 percent of people currently in their 20s will become disabled before the age of 67.

Reasons for a Social Security Disability denial

The Social Security Administration (SSA) provides important support to disabled Americans. Many of them wouldn't be able to live independent lives if it weren't for this vital financial aid. However, it isn't always easy getting approved for Social Security Disability (SSD). Countless applications are denied every year.

What to do when you are unable to work because of depression

Depression is an illness that is just as pervasive and debilitating as any physical disease. However, it can be more difficult to recognize as a problem and more difficult to diagnose. Depression may have crept up on you over time, and you found yourself being less able to do the things that you normally took for granted.

How to appeal your disability benefits denial

When you are in great need of disability benefits, it can be heartbreaking when you have your application rejected. It is very common to have your application rejected the first time you apply, and often the reason is due to a minor mistake that you made in the application that you submitted, or due to a failure in providing enough information.

The disability criteria for Social Security benefits

When it comes to Social Security benefits, a disabled person must meet a special set of guidelines in order to qualify. This is because Social Security benefits are designed for those who cannot work to the same extent that they would have been able to if they were completely well.
