Clearing up misconceptions about Social Security Disability

Like many areas of the law, Social Security Disability is often fraught with misconceptions. This is not surprising, because untangling all the different aspects of SSD benefits can be extremely confusing. If a resident of Michigan is suffering from a condition that leaves them unable to work, it may be time to get more information about Social Security Disability benefits.

Providing thorough evidence for denied SSDI claims

After applying for Social Security Disability benefits it is not unusual for applicants to initially have their claim denied. A claim may be denied for a variety of reasons, but it's important for disabled applicants not to give up in trying to obtain the benefits to which they may be entitled. One of the primary reasons that a SSDI claim may be denied is due to lack of evidence regarding the applicant's disability.

Is there a Social Security Disability list of impairments?

For someone who is disabled and unable to continue working, obtaining the proper help is essential. Many people in Michigan rely on Social Security Disability benefits for support when they can no longer support themselves. For those who have recently become diagnosed with a disability, one of their first questions might be, does this condition qualify for Social Security Disability?

How long does Social Security Disability reconsideration take?

When people become disabled, it usually becomes vitally important that they find a way to make ends meet financially. This is because, with a disability, working and being self-sufficient may be either extremely difficult or impossible. For disabled people who can no longer support themselves sufficiently, Social Security Disability is a program that offers a lifeline to benefits.

Do family members qualify for SSD benefits?

Becoming disabled is a huge change that can have repercussions in all areas of a person's life. This is true, of course, for a person of any station in life, but it can be particularly overwhelming for a people who have others who depend on them. This could be a parent who suddenly becomes disabled and has children to care for, a breadwinner whose injury could threaten the financial well-being of a spouse or a person who has a disabled child.

What is a Social Security Disability review?

When Michigan residents are receiving Social Security Disability benefits, they must be aware that the Social Security Administration will conduct periodic reviews of the illness, condition or disability that warranted the benefits. This is true whether the person is receiving Social Security Income or Social Security Disability. It is important to understand how this review process works and what to do in the event that the benefits are discontinued. In general, if the claimant has not experienced an improvement in the issue or if the claimant cannot work, the benefits will continue. During the review, the claimant will be afforded the chance to show that the benefits should continue.
