What is Social Security Disability

The Social Security System created a safety net for individuals that found themselves unable to work because of a disabling condition. People who fit this description can apply for benefits through one of two ways. The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which is offered for people who paid taxes through employment for at least five of the past ten years. Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the second program. This is for people who meet the financial need requirement and are considered of low-income.

Who Qualifies for Social Security Disability

Those who meet the Social Security Administration’s severe medical conditions listed in the “List of Impairments” or those who cannot perform substantial gainful activity can qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. Typically, it’s more common for an applicant to prove they can’t perform substantial gainful activity since it’s infrequent for an applicant to have one of the severe ailments from the SSA’s list.

However, if an applicant believes they meet the criteria, they could be automatically accepted to receive benefits. Some of the conditions from the outlined list include but are not limited to cardiovascular conditions, cancer, musculoskeletal disorders, autism, and immune system disorders.

If you have any questions on if you qualify or which route to take, meet with a Hoglund Law attorney.

Why Are People Denied Social Security Disability

Because of the SSA strict guidelines, denials can happen often. Sometimes this can be because of a minor tweak in the file, other times this can be because of a disqualifying factor.

Partaking in fraud, continual use of drugs and alcohol, and a condition lasting for less than a year can automatically result in a denial. To better understand how the SSA will evaluate your case, contact Hoglund Law. An attorney can help you build a stronger case and avoid denials.

Have You Been Denied SSDI / SSI?

During a denial from your initial claim, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. There’s always a plan B: applying for an appeal. Getting a hearing is where a lot of people succeed in the SSD process. This hearing lets you submit new evidence and make arguments on exactly how your condition hinders your ability to work.

At this point, it’s vital to get proper representation if you haven’t already. An SSD attorney has mastered cross-examining witnesses, providing legal arguments, and disproving false assumptions. Statistically, you are more likely to win your case with a qualified attorney at your side. To get in contact with a Social Security Disability attorney, call Hoglund Law today.
