Who is Eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits?
There are a variety of factors that determine eligibility for Social Security disability benefits. The first is the severity of the disability. Many cases involve a serious physical disability. This disability can be the result of an injury or an illness. It is also important to be aware that a mental disability can also make a person eligible to receive SSD.
There are other factors involved as well, including the age of the applicant.
The SSD Process
The Social Security disability application process is a fairly simple matter. This can be done on your own. Our lawyers are also happy to assist or simply answer questions to see that nothing is overlooked. We want to prevent any errors that could cause challenges further down the line.
The biggest challenge is a denied SSD claim. These are surprisingly common. Many claims are initially denied. That doesn't mean the process has to stop. There are additional steps that can be taken. We can work with you to help you get the benefits you need.
