Social Security Disability Archives

What can an attorney do to speed up my disability appeal?

Many Detroit residents, particularly those who are either applying for disability or thinking about doing so, have probably heard the news about notoriously long waiting times should they need to take an appeal of their application for disability to an Administrative Law Judge.

Social Security disability and compassionate allowances

Individuals who suffer from a disabling injury or illness may be able to recover Social Security disability benefits to help them cover their medical expenses and lost wages. This is no small thing, as treating a disabling condition can be quite expensive, and it could leave an individual out of work for a significant period of time. That being said, successfully obtaining these benefits isn't always as easy as it may seem. In fact, many SSD claims are denied on the basis that the claimant does not meet a medical condition's requirements to be considered "disabling."

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?
