You’re facing down an application for Social Security Disability benefits. You need these benefits because you can’t work, money stopped coming in and bills are piling up.
The problem is, when you file for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you’re looking at a mountain of forms to fill out. Navigating Social Security’s complex legal process, meeting its deadlines and understanding what’s required is frustrating.
These forms aren’t just formalities. You really have to get them right, and show Social Security how your health problems rule out working, in order to win benefits. Most people get denied when they first apply for disability.
Social Security Disability provides monthly checks and Medicare coverage, helping you reach more stable financial ground, letting you focus on your health and get on with your life. So don’t take chances with your forms.
An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer will know what Social Security is looking for in the information you send them, and how to present your situation to them.
