Applying for Social Security Disability Seems Complicated
If the process of applying for social security disability benefits seems complicated you are not the only one who feels this way! The truth is that the process of applying for both SSDI and SSI benefits is notoriously difficult and frustrating. The applications are lengthy, often confusing to those new to the social security terminology, and are almost always rejected after the first submission. Sometimes an applicant won’t even know his/her application has been rejected until months after submitting his/her application. The process is simply frustrating. However, it’s important not to give up! Many applicants do succeed and are awarded regular benefits. If you have a disability you deserve to seek benefits and better your life.
What is the Difference Between SSDI and SSI Benefits?
This is a great question. Both SSDI and SSI benefits are for those who cannot work full or part-time due to a disability. However, SSDI beneficiaries are required to have contributed to the social security system with past work and SSI beneficiaries receive benefits according to their income level. Some applicants are eligible to receive SSDI and SSI benefits but this scenario is rare.
How Can I Get Social Security Disability Benefits Faster?
The fastest way to get benefits is to enlist the aid of an experienced social security attorney. At first it might seem silly to solicit the advice of an attorney but when you consider the following it’s likely that you will quickly change your mind.
Experienced social security attorneys will:
- Provide you with a FREE initial consultation. They will let you know whether you have a strong claim to benefits or not. After all they won’t want to waste your valuable time or theirs.
- Will analyze your individual situation to see if you are eligible for additional benefits you may not yet have considered.
- Will consult you on how to present your medical information and doctor provided disability information in the application.
- Will provide numerous additional tips (perhaps dozens of them) on how to fill out the application for best results.
- Will prepare and re-submit another application if the first application is rejected. The rejection of an application is unlikely with the help of any attorney however it is best to be prepared.
- Will NOT charge you until you have been rewarded with benefits! If you are awarded benefits, which is likely with the assistance of an attorney who has reviewed your case, you will pay $6000 or 25% of your retroactive (past-due) benefits, whichever is less. This amount is very reasonable considering all the time saved and headaches avoided due to the experienced attorney’s services!
