The right approach to your SSD benefits claim

Some of our readers may know that nearly two-thirds of all Social Security Disability Insurance claims are initially denied by the Social Security Administration. With millions of Americans already enjoying benefits to aid them with their disabilities, the Social Security Administration must be stringent and make certain that only applicants who truly qualify and meet the specific guidelines are accepted into the program.
This means that you must properly fill out all the necessary forms, follow their strict guidelines and provide them with any additional information that they require. This may include your history of medical records, your employment history and even the possibility of additional exams provided by the Social Security Administration for the agency to determine your eligibility.
Applicants must also prove that they have a condition that qualifies for the program, or prove that their disability prohibits them from obtaining gainful employment and that the injury or illness is expected to last for at least one year or end in death. This process may seem intimidating and, depending on the nature of your disability, it may be difficult for you to provide all the necessary paperwork and information the Social Security Administration requires.
