What to do after a disability claim has been assigned

When an Indiana resident submits an application for disability benefits, it will be assigned to an examiner. It is possible that an application could be approved on the first try, but it is also possible that a person will be asked for more information. In some cases, it will be necessary to go for a consultative examination, or CE. This is done to create a recent record or to verify information that might have been left out of an application.

SSD decisions dependent on medical records

Indiana residents who are struggling with disabling diseases or injuries often wait weeks, months or even a year before receiving initial decisions regarding their applications for Social Security Disability benefits. Although the examiners reviewing applications strive to process cases in a timely matter, difficulty getting current or complete medical records often stymies their efforts.

3 reasons long-term disability claims get denied

If you want to apply for long-term disability benefits from your employer, you probably want to do it right away. You may want to rush through the process because it is so difficult to manage without the benefits. While you certainly want to apply for benefits before the deadline, you should not do so fast that you make mistakes.
