Those who decide on disability applications

When an Indiana resident files for Social Security disability benefits, they may wonder who is responsible for making the decision about their application. The person responsible for determining whether a claim will be approved varies depending on the level of the process involved. People who first apply for benefits enter at the initial disability claim level. If the initial claim is denied, the applicant can then move on to a reconsideration appeal and a hearing before an administrative law judge. After that level, one can still appeal to the Appeal Council and then to a federal district court.

Listing multiple conditions helps when seeking benefits

When filing a disability application, it is essential to establish an inability to do any kind of work. This includes an applicant's current job as well as any former job that he or she held. In most cases, Indiana residents will win a disability case by showing that they have multiple conditions. While it is possible to win benefits by proving a singular condition exists, the goal is to stack the odds in an applicant's favor by any legal means available.
