One of the major areas of focus of the Social Security Administration in recent times has been the prevention of Social Security Disability fraud. In connection to these efforts, the agency recently made an announcement regarding Michigan.
It is a situation many an individual from Michigan has found themselves in. They submitted a claim for Social Security Disability benefits after having suffered a disabling injury or developed a disabling condition that has impeded their ability to work, but their claim was denied. While receiving an initial claims denial can be disheartening, it does not mean a person has to end their quest of pursuing SSD benefits. There is an appeals process in place.
