The Realities of Applying for Social Security Disability

by Staff Blogger | July 20th, 2016

There are a number of realities when it comes to applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. First of all, your chances of securing benefits aren’t great on your own. In fact, two-thirds of initial applicants are denied benefits. That’s tens of thousands of people every single year. Secondly, the application process can be long and arduous, especially if you’re trying to do it all on your own. Thirdly, just because you are disabled, doesn’t automatically mean you qualify for disability benefits. The SSA’s definition of disability is extremely strict, which is one reason there are so many denials.

The good news is those who appeal with the help of a lawyer are more likely to secure benefits. It just makes sense. An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer has potentially handled hundreds of SSD cases. They know what works, what doesn’t, and quite frankly, how to win benefits. Sure, you can find plenty of resources online that tell you how to file an appeal, but why not consult with an attorney that can go beyond the how to and give you the best chance of securing benefits, potentially for life?
