Having to rely on Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments isn’t something that most people think they will ever have to do. If the time for you to need these payments does come up, you need to understand that you might be facing a long road toward approval. We can help you work through the process of applying for benefits and appealing a decision if one isn’t made in your favor.
There are several things that you need to know when you are applying for disability benefits. One of these is that there are time limits and certain time requirements that must be present. For example, your disability can’t be a short-term one. It must be expected to impact your ability to work for a certain amount of time in order for the claim to be valid.
Another thing to remember is that you might have to appeal the decision made for your case. Many disability claims are denied at first. Preparing yourself for this possibility might help you decide how you are going to handle the situation.
If you do have to appeal a decision, you only have a specific amount of time. This information is found on your decision letter. You have to comply with the time limit and instructions exactly because failing to do so could mean that you have to apply again, which would start the process over.
We are here to help you with all aspects of your disability claim. Make sure that you are working on the case from the start so that you aren’t trying to rush around to make the deadline for various aspects of your case.
