What is Social Security Disability
Designed to distribute benefits to those suffering from a debilitating condition disabling them from participating in the workforce, Social Security Disability provides benefits to qualifying applicants that fall into one of its two categories. The first category, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), is granted to qualifying individuals who have worked five of the past ten years and contributed to the system through the Social Security tax. The second category called Supplemental Security Income or SSI, administers benefits to individuals that demonstrate substantial financial need.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability
Initial denial and denial after reconsideration is overwhelming common. The Social Security Administration (SSA) holds very specific standards for qualifying meaning even one missing document can result in a denial. Many of the reasons applicants are initially denied can be overcome by merely appealing the decision or consulting with an attorney to develop a stronger case. However, there are some factors that will result in immediate disqualification.
Social Security Disability benefits are administered only to individuals with sustained conditions meaning conditions that are likely to last less than a year will not qualify you for benefits. Additionally, drug and alcohol use relating to the creation, continuation, or worsening of your condition will not result in the approval of your case.

If you qualify for SSDI or SSI, our team of qualified Social Security attorneys will ensure you are given the opportunity to develop your case and make sure a mere missing document doesn’t stop you from gaining access to benefits.

About Brooklyn Center, MN
One of the original inner-ring suburbs of Minneapolis, Brooklyn Center aided in the growth of Minneapolis as a farming community. To avoid being annexed by the ever growing city of Minneapolis, Brooklyn Center separated from Brooklyn township in 1911, ultimately allowing this industrial job center to become an official city in 1966. This commitment to autonomy and independence allowed Brooklyn Center to transform into a thriving city, home to the headquarters of Caribou Coffee and Brookdale Center Mall.
Brooklyn Center’s economy is fueled by a unique mix of local small businesses and large corporations making working in this community conducive to a wide variety of workers. The city is also the proud home to notable persons such as the first sheriff of Hennepin county and a former state senator.
