Living with a serious disability -- caused either by a serious illness or injury -- can be very difficult. People can struggle with their health, their independence and their finances. Not only do many people face staggering medical bills to treat a disability, they may also be completely unable to work. Without a job, people can have a hard time supporting themselves.
In these situations, Social Security Disability benefits can be crucial. They can give people the financial resources to be independent and provide for their own basic needs. However, obtaining these benefits is not easy. It requires significant evidence of a person's disability, financial status and inability to work.
Even when people qualify, the Social Security Administration can deny a person's application on technical reasons. They may require more specific information, medical records or a medical exam. An appeals process is available, but has strict deadlines and legal requirements that must be met in order to be successful.
