Taking the necessary steps to receive SSD benefits

On Behalf of | Dec 28, 2021 | social security disability

Most people in Indiana do quite a bit of research to determine if they meet the eligibility requirements before they apply to receive Social Security Disability benefits. There is no doubt that the entire application process can seem overwhelming at times and the eligibility requirements can be difficult to understand. But, when people submit that application, they are hoping for good results.

Unfortunately, the reality is that many initial applications for SSD benefits are denied. The reasons why this happens can vary, from mistakes on the application to the failure to provide enough verification of the disability in question – among other reasons. So, what can you do if your application for SSD benefits was denied? Well, one option is to appeal that decision.

If you go through the trouble of applying for SSD benefits, and you legitimately qualify, you should receive the benefits you deserve. There are multiple layers to the Social Security Administration’s appeals process when an initial application for SSD benefits is denied. Be determined, be persistent and, hopefully, you will ultimately reach the right result and get approved to receive SSD benefits.
