What is Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability is a program that allows people unable to work to receive payments in order to supplement income. There are two different methods of Social Security Disability that operate differently and go to different recipients. Supplemental Security Income is for people who meet certain financial criteria and comes from money not drawn from Social Security tax. Social Security Disability Insurance, on the other hand, is funded through Social Security taxes and is given to those who have worked long enough. Both methods require that you meet medical criteria to qualify and are administered by the Social Security Administration.

It’s not a secret: those who are applying for Social Security Disability may well be going through a hard period in their life. Getting the benefits you deserve shouldn’t have to be another hardship. At Hoglund Law’s Cincinnati Office, we are determined to ensure that when you file you can do so confidently.
Harnessing over 175 years of combined experience serving over 30,000 clients, our Social Security Disability lawyers fight so that you don’t have to. The Social Security Administration, which oversees the approval process, has very specific criteria that it looks for—factors that might be unknown to those who haven’t faced them again and again. As a group that is well acquainted with the SSA and their innerworkings, we can identify those factors that make you an ideal candidate and highlight them so that you receive that much needed income.
Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability
There are two ways to qualify. The most popular method of doing so is showing that you are unable to do substantial gainful activity—basically that you are unable to work due to a debilitating condition.
The other is by matching the exact medical criteria that the Social Security Administration has published beneath a listed condition. While the condition must be severe to meet the SSA’s standards, this method immediately qualifies individuals and includes such conditions as anxiety, heart failure, cancer, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability
There are many reasons that someone may be denied Social Security benefits. Ranging from things that naturally disqualify someone from receiving benefits to simple mistakes that can be rectified in further appeal, the process of receiving benefits often involves at least an initial denial.
It is important to note certain habits or factors that will immediately signify to the SSA that you should not receive benefits. Such factors include the use of drugs and alcohol, participation in fraud, obtainment of condition through conviction, and the refusal to cooperate. If you are ever unsure whether a factor is getting in the way of you receiving benefits, we encourage you to come in for a free case evaluation, during which you can find out what a Hoglund Law Attorney can do for you.
Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?
It is all too common that those applying for Social Security Disability are denied and then give up even though they should have been approved. You would think that, if someone was really supposed to receive benefits, they would have been approved in the first place, however the truth is a little more complicated than that. With such an overwhelming case load facing the Social Security Administration, it has no choice but to deny applicants whose claim isn’t detailed enough and occasionally misses important game-changing factors in an applicant’s file.
What does that mean for you?
It’s possible that you have fallen victim to such a mistake. Luckily, we’re here to help. A qualified Hoglund Law Social Security Disability lawyer is waiting to give you a free case evaluation—providing you with valuable insight into what might have gotten that initial no and how to turn it into a yes. But our office doesn’t just provide this service, we also are willing to continue the fight for you by helping you appeal and representing you throughout the process of getting your benefits.
