Warren, Michigan is Detroit’s largest suburb, reporting a population of 134,056 in 2010. Though Detroit and the metropolitan area where hit by recent economic hardships, Warren is still home to several major auto industry centers. Other major players in Warren’s economy include the U.S. military and a number of businesses in the manufacturing and food service sectors.
The Social Security Administrations Region 5 office in Chicago serves residents of the city of Warren. The Chicago regional office sees more than 33,000 new claims for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) annually and handles the distribution of payments to more than 400,000 beneficiaries.
SSDI is for individuals who’ve been unable to hold a job for a period of one year or longer as a result of an extended or permanent disability. In addition to having a disabling condition, you must also have sufficient work credits built up over the last ten years in order to qualify for SSDI under the Social Security Administration’s guidelines. If you do not meet the requirements for SSDI, you may still qualify for SSI.
Apply for Warren Social Security Disability Benefits
Applying for Warren Social Security Disability benefits is a complex process and can take a number of months to complete. The Social Security Administration (SSA) approves about 29.5 percent of the initial claims seen in the Chicago regional office. The remaining claims – those initially denied benefits – must go through a second review, though only 9.8 percent of SSD applicants are found eligible at this juncture in the process.
The next step for those applicants who are denied benefits is to file an appeal. This puts your case in the cue to be reviewed by an administrative law judge for final determination regarding eligibility. Having the assistance of a Warren Social Security Disability attorney throughout this process increases your chances of receiving SSD benefits.
Most Warren disability claims which are initially denied don’t have correct or sufficient medical records. A Warren disability lawyer can review your case file and ensure that you receive the appropriate medical tests and other procedures for documenting your disability under SSA guidelines. He or she can improve your chances of receiving benefits during the initial or reconsideration reviews and can also argue your case at, and help you prepare for, the appeals hearing as well.
