Knowledge and experience can help the SSD claim process

It is human to err and when the process is something as confusing as filling out a Social Security Disability claims application, Anaheim, California, residents are probably highly likely to err. Even though individuals conduct their initial research and assume they have all the necessary information to proceed correctly, their applications may be denied because of the basic mistakes or omissions they make in their application.

He worked as a stone mason until a series of heart attacks forced him in his late 50s to stop working. He applied for Social Security Disability benefits in 2014, but his claim was denied. He appealed the decision, but died in November of last year following a fourth and final heart attack.

Don't let the SSA backlog hinder denied claim appeal

California residents may be surprised to hear that the Social Security Administration shells out $197 billion in disability payments to 10.5 million in Social Security Disability benefits and 8 million in Supplemental Security Income. Though this may sound like a whopping number, the reality is that no one is getting rich receiving this payment-with an average payment of $1,037, it is barely enough to keep a family out of poverty.

Helping you navigate through eligibility rules

As mentioned previously on this blog, there are two federal programs administered by the Social Security Administration and since they also sound similar, many people get confused between them. However, the differences between Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income were discussed thoroughly previously, so California residents can correctly determine which program to apply for.

You might need help navigating through your SSD claim

As you may have heard, getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits is not always easy. In fact, approximately two thirds of all applicants who initially apply are rejected. Undoubtedly, some of these rejections are justified.

It means there was probably some deficiency in the application.

Why was my SSD claim denied?

However, they may be surprised to learn that they are not alone in this boat-more than 70 percent of initial claims are denied.

Social Security disability reconsideration

Navigating the Social Security disability claims process can be challenging for some. In some cases, it is possible to not successfully pass the initial claim stage. In fact, a large majority of cases do not make it through the initial claim stage. Understandably, for many in Anaheim this can be devastating. After all, many rely on Social Security disability benefits to make ends meet. Thankfully, there are certain steps these people can take if they are denied Social Security.

Mental health and Social Security disability

There are many reasons why Anaheim residents may find themselves unable to work. Whatever the reason, not being able to work can put a person in a very challenging place financially.

However, not everyone is eligible for these benefits, and sometimes it is not easy to know whether or not someone qualifies.
