Information About Social Security Disability Benefit Claim

If you are considering to apply for social security disability benefits, you should know the whole process from preparing an application, filing it to getting it approved. What if your application is rejected. It is a fact that over 66% Initial Social Security Disability applications get rejected. Will you give up after first rejection? Should you give up? But why should anyone give up on his or her right? You should not be the person who abandons a struggle in between knowing the fact that it can give you valuable monthly income as well as lifetime care.

What Should I do After Denial?

  • You should immediately prepare to file a request for Reconsideration. Don’t wait for more than 60 days. You will only waste your precious time and money. The delay can cause disqualification as well.
  • You will be required to provide Social Security Administration with information. They may ask you to present your friends or family members for providing them information. That’s where you need an expert attorney. If you select the wrong person for provision of information, this can further complicate your case.
  • The process can be a lengthy one if you try to do it on your own. The time you take to understand different complexities of the process will be wasted.
  • If your claim is accepted then comes the point of calculating the benefits. The benefits vary from case to case. As everyone’s disability is on different level, their claim gets different benefits. The National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare estimated in 2010 that a young disabled worker, who had a spouse and a couple of children, was entitled to $465,000 social security benefit disability benefit.

What I Get Rejection For the Second Time?

That’s for sure a bit disappointing but still there is a third chance. You can get Social Security Disability benefits in your third request. So what do you have to do now?

  • Now you will submit a Request For Hearing.
  • The Request for Hearing can be filed by three ways. Whichever suits you, opt for it.
  1. You may visit the local Social Security Office. Call 1-800-772-1213 to fix an appointment for filing the Request for Hearing. Fill out a fresh form about your medical conditions. Make sure that you keep information about your medical service providers to enter on the forms.
  2. You may opt to apply online. Just go to www.ssa.gov . Make a hit on ‘appeal a decision.’ The next should be on ‘Request for Hearing.’
