Tips for Applying for Social Security Disability
Social Security Disability (SSD) can provide much-needed financial support in the wake of a new diagnosis or a life-threatening health condition. If you are new to the SSD program, your application is the first step towards obtaining these benefits, and we have the following tips to increase the likelihood that it will be accepted.
- Make sure you are eligible—The Social Security Administration maintains a tight definition on what is considered a disability. Complete an eligibility screening (many free ones are available online) to familiarize yourself with the rules and requirements of qualifying.
- Start early—Do not wait to file your application for SSD. Depending on the severity of your condition, waiting too long increases your chances of draining your savings and any retirement funds you have. In most cases, the SSA takes between three and six months to review each new application, so it is better not to delay getting your application in.
- Do not cancel your medical insurance—With a tight budget, it may be tempting to forgo your current medical insurance. Try to refrain doing this for as long as possible, since adequate medical evidence can support your claim to benefits.
At Koontz & Smith, Attorneys at Law, we can help you review your claim to SSD benefits to ensure all the information is accurate and your claim is fully supported. If your application is denied, we can also help you with the claims process to ensure your get access to the financial safety net you need during this difficult time.
