Get Your Disability Evaluation in minutes.
Life shouldn't stop with a career ending disability. Thankfully, the Social Security Administration (SSA) through the Social Security program provides benefits and assistance to retirees, disabled, and to those surviving a death in the family. Through the Social Security taxes we pay, we are assured of benefits and claims in the untimely incident of a disability. The SSA is there to provide monthly benefits to the qualified disabled, their spouses, their children, and other family members. These benefits are taken from the monthly security taxes we all pay.
As great as these benefits may sound, in reality, filing a disability benefits claim can be challenging. The process can take a lot of effort including: interviews, filing paper work, making several trips to hearings, and more. Understanding the entire process can often times be hard for the average person. In the untimely occurrence of a disability in the family, the last thing you probably want is to be burdened by trying to have your application and claim approved on your own.

Social Security Disability Claim Information
Anyone can be disabled. There is no age, race, or gender exemptions for disability. Some get into accidents that render them unable to move and walk while others suffer from debilitating illnesses that slowly hamper their mobility. Whatever the reason, disability can greatly affect a person's life. People with a disability most often need to stop working, and are unable to perform their regular daily routine. Without a job they are also unable to pay bills and provide for themselves and their family.
Upon developing a disability, the person typically files an application to claim benefits with the Social Security Administration. Unfortunately, more often than not, applications are denied by the SSA for various reasons.
With the help of the America Disability Network, thousands of disability claims have been submitted and approved helping the disabled get the benefits they need.
With the help of the America Disability Network, disabled applicants may expect the following:
- An experienced team to liaise for the disabled and take care of processing the application.
- Having the assistance of a team to file for appeals in the event that the claim is rejected.
- A team of people to do your legwork for you, including filing of paper work and other documents.
- Decrease the chances of being denied just by some avoidable technicalities.
Once a claim is successful and the applicant is given the benefit of a claim, it may take anywhere around 6 months for the disabled to receive benefit checks. For applications that are denied, the applicant usually has 30 days to make the appeal. In worst cases, some benefit claims need to go through court hearings for resettlement.
The entire process of filing an application for a disability claim can be long and difficult. Without a team who knows the the process, it could be very hard for the disabled to win a claim. Leverage our Network of SSD professionals.
Find Out if You Qualify for a Disability Claim
If you have a physical or mental condition that prevents you from working you may qualify to receive Social Security Disability benefits. This condition may be a result of an accident or a debilitating illness that renders a person unable to continue work or make an income. Once this happens, the disabled person and their family suffer greatly both emotionally and financially. The disabled person is forced to stop working and can no longer provide income for the family.
An experienced social security disability advocate or attorney can help you determine which program(s) you are most likely eligible for.
The Social Security Administration provides a way for disabled people to file for claims to be able to support their family despite their disability. Depending on an individual’s contribution, claims for disability may be available to them. The process of filing an application for a disability claim can be a challenging process.
The first step in filing for a disability claim is to understand if you qualify for it. Here are some quick points to check if you potentially qualify for a claim:
- The applicant should have completed at least 5 years straight of employment and is now unable to work.
- Your disability should last longer than 12 months.
- You are not an existing recipient of the Social Security benefits.
- You are earning an amount that falls under a given bracket.
- You need to be able to have earned a number of required work credits to qualify for a disability claim.
For others who wish to file for disability claim but cannot produce employment history records, they may opt to file for a Supplemental Security Income claim. They need to prove their disability and must not have over $2,000 in liquid assets; there must be clear financial need for the applicant. The current income of an individual or a couple needs to pass the qualifications to be able to have their claim application approved.
Not every disability application will be approved. Social security services evaluates the claim of the applicant on an individual basis. A disability application claim needs to be backed up by documentation and essential paper work like medical records and employment history.
