Social security disability benefits basically comprise of monthly payments and Medicare benefits that serve as a form of compensation to individuals who are entirely disabled from performing any form of substantial and gainful work.
One of the problems with this government program, however, is the trouble you must undergo to begin receiving social security disability. An individual must not only prove that he or she is disabled but that this disability prevents him or her from earning income or gaining employment.
If you believe that you are eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits, you may apply in person at your local Social Security office or apply by mail or phone. However, it is highly recommended that you apply in person if possible. Save receipts and copies of all relevant documents. The initial processing of these claims takes anywhere from 60 to 90 days.
Unfortunately, the application process presents some difficulties as well. Individuals are oftentimes rejected initially and must appeal the decision numerous times before being accepted. This process may take several years to complete and may even require a review of the person’s medical records.
If your application is denied, an experienced, knowledgeable social security disability lawyer can help appeal the decision and may be able to help prove that you are in need of social security disability.
