If you’ve been rendered unable to work as a result of a disability, you might be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. You don’t want to apply for them without an retaining a qualified attorney, though. That’s because the majority of all SSD benefits applications are denied. Most of those denials involve applications from people with no experience whatsoever in the SSD application process who are unable to obtain and develop the evidence necessary to prove their disability.
If your application for SSD benefits has already been denied, you have 60 days to start the appeal process. It consists of four levels, with each level being increasingly complex. These levels are reconsideration, a hearing before an SSD judge, a hearing before the Appeals Council and an actual lawsuit in federal court. Having experienced disability lawyers in Chicago representing you can greatly enhance your chances of being approved for the benefits that you need.
The Importance of a Complete Application Package
Your disability must have lasted for a year, or it must be expected to last a year. Your application is prepared based on the information contained in your medical records and reports. It’s a tedious process. All appropriate information must be contained in the application. Missing information or documentation can be the basis for a denial.
