What is Social Security Disability

Created as a safety net, the Social Security System offers benefits to people who have a disabling medical condition. The Social Security System can help in one of two ways. The first is Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDI which is available for people that have worked and paid taxes to the Social Security System for a specific amount of time. The second is Supplemental Security Income (SSI) which is available for people that meet the financial criteria.

How a Canton Social Security Disability Attorney Can Help

Social Security Disability (SSD) is a great option for people who have been impacted by a disabling medical condition. Although the process can be overwhelming, a knowledgeable attorney is a useful tool. They can point out what’s needed in your file and the best route to take to win your claim. If you have any questions that arise, call Hoglund Law to meet with one of our attorneys. We offer an initial free case evaluation.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

Social Security Disability benefits are reserved for those that cannot work due to a disabling condition that has lasted at least 12 months if not more. There are two routes an applicant can take when applying for benefits. The first is to prove the condition deters an individual from working and performing substantial gainful activity. The second, and more uncommon, route is to meet the criteria of specific medical conditions listed by the Social Security Administration. Some of those conditions are immune system disorders, mental disorders, skin disorders, cardiovascular conditions, and malignant neoplastic disorders. For the full list, click here.

Understanding which route you qualify for can be puzzling to say the least. It never hurts to reach out and ask for some help during this process. Attorneys can tell you what information will give you a stronger claim and what option will work best for the condition you’re experiencing. Although it seems scary, an attorney can break it down action by action and get you through the application as painlessly as possible. Call Hoglund Law today to go over your options during a free case evaluation.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

The Social Security Administration denies applicants for many different reasons. It’s common to get denied, especially if there’s a lack of supporting evidence. Current drug and alcohol use, participating in fraud, and a condition lasting less than a year can also result in a denial.

Learning the actions that can ultimately lead to denial is important to know beforehand. This is why a Social Security Disability attorney is beneficial in helping you better understand what your file needs in order to avoid a denial and how the SSA will evaluate your claim. Call Hoglund Law for a free case evaluation to meet with an experienced attorney.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

Denials can be common during the application process, but appeals can be requested. Although, an appeal must be requested as soon as possible because there’s a 60-day deadline. Continuing to get all the information you possibly can is the most important thing you can do while you wait. Continue your medical care and file as much information as possible that’s relevant to your condition.

Another very important task you should accomplish is finding representation if you have not yet done so. An attorney can point out the weaker points in your file and help you strengthen them. Attorneys are vital to have during the hearing as well because they can disprove false assumptions about your condition, provide legal arguments, cross examine witnesses, and present your supporting evidence to the judge efficiently.

You are more likely to win with an attorney by your side throughout this process. The skills that Social Security attorneys have will raise your chances of receiving benefits significantly. Call Hoglund Law to make sure you get the proper representation.
