What is Social Security Disability

Made up of two programs, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability is designed to protect individuals and their families from income loss when a disability interferes with one’s capacity to work. SSDI is for people who have already been contributing to the system as working individual in recent years. SSI is reserved for financially needy persons.

How a Columbus Social Security Disability Attorney Can Help

During a time as stressful as dealing with a work inhibiting condition, you should not have to be overwhelmed by the intricacies of the Social Security Administration’s regulations. The SSA has very strict and specific requirements to weed out applicants, making the process difficult to navigate without experience. An attorney who has dedicated their career to helping clients acquire benefits is well versed in the process and can make your experience easier.

If you have been denied benefits, it is tricky and frustrating to discern why. This is where we come in. At Hoglund Law, we understand the details the SSA looks for in an application and we can pinpoint weaknesses in your application. An attorney can help you build a stronger application before you appeal your case.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

Qualifying for Social Security Disability is possible in two ways. You may either prove you are incapable of performing substantial gainful activity or you can meet the criteria attached to your given condition as determined by the SSA. The former is a far more common option because the criteria set by the SSA is narrowly defined and hard to reach.

A non-exhaustive list of qualifying conditions with criteria released by the SSA includes cancer, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular conditions, lupus, and dermatitis. To look at a more complete list of conditions and their requirements, click here.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

Reasons for denial are expansive yet largely solvable in many cases. For varying reasons, the majority of applications are denied upon initial filing. Some issues can be quickly reversed by adding medical evidence to the file and appealing the decisions. However, that is not always the case.

If drug or alcohol use contributes to your condition, you have a previous conviction, you have participated in fraudulent activity, or you refuse to cooperate with the SSA, you probably will be denied.

If you aren’t sure how these regulations will impact your chances of approval, contact Hoglund Law in Columbus to gain insight into your case.
