The Social Security Administration (SSA) awards presumptive disability to those who may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Now, you may be wondering, what exactly is presumptive disability? Presumptive disability are benefits designed to offer financial assistance and support for individuals that, based on the information in their SSI application, the SSA sees as having a high likelihood of ultimately being approved for SSI.
Applying for disability benefits can be a challenging experience. The Social Security Administration (SSA), which is the federal agency administering the assessment and distribution of benefits, has exacting criteria for eligibility.
The whole process of applying for disability benefits can take at least six months. If your application is denied initially and you are forced to appeal, the process can take much longer.
State governments are not the ones to administer social security benefits. This includes disability benefits.
Instead, all disability benefits applications are assessed and administered by the federal government body, specifically the Social Security Administration (SSA).
With the Social Security Administration (SSA) denying a majority of disability claims, do applicants with denied disability claims have a second chance to make a positive first impression?
The answer is yes because applicants with denied disability claims can go through the appeals process established by the SSA. With the legal support of a Social Security disability attorney, you start the appeals process by filing a reconsideration appeal.
An SSDI reconsideration involves resubmitting your original claim for Social Security disability benefits.
The Social Security disability caregiver application involves a caregiver(s) of a friend or family member with a serious illness applying for Social Security disability benefits on their behalf.
