Beyond long-term disability: Applying for SSDI benefits

Many jobs come with hazards that could cause serious, debilitating and permanent injuries. When an Anaheim resident suffers this kind of injury on the job, long-term disability benefits might not last as long as needed. When benefits are needed beyond long-term disability because an individual is no longer able to be in the workforce, applying for benefits from the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program might be the next step.

When submitting an application, there are a number of questions that will be asked. The Social Security Administration will want detailed information regarding doctor visits, the nature of the condition or conditions and when they became disabling. It will also be necessary to provide information regarding medications, last dates worked and medical tests, along with your marital status. It might not seem like it would be difficult to gather this information, but for many Anaheim residents, it could be an arduous task.

If an individual has not regularly paid into the Social Security system, it might also be necessary to apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability payments. In order to receive these payments, additional information will be required. The Social Security Administration offers many ways to apply for benefits and makes the process sound easy.

However, a significant number of applicants are denied benefits the first time they submit an application. Often, this is due to not providing enough or the correct type of information. Missing one document that the agency considers essential to an application can cause a denial. Any delay could be financially devastating. Considering the importance of receiving SSDI and SSI benefits when an individual is unable to work due to a disability, it would be advantageous to obtain the advice and guidance of an attorney who regularly practices in this area.
