As we have said before on our blog, many disabling conditions require costly medical treatments and multiple trips to doctors and specialists. In a lot of cases, a disabling condition can even force an individual out of work; or in cases of disabled children, prevent them from ever joining the workforce.
It's because of these facts that many people become concerned after receiving a diagnosis for a disabling condition. They know that their financial stability may suffer as they will likely be spending more than they are earning. In many cases such as this, people with disabilities seek financial aid from government agencies, such as the Social Security Administration.
But as so many have learned, applying for disability benefits through SSA programs can be challenging. Not only do programs like SSDI and SSI have strict requirements for eligibility, applicants must also provide copious amounts of medical information that supports their claim. In the case of SSI applications, an individual must also submit considerable financial information as well that shows how limited their income and resources are.
For many applicants, gathering all of this information can be a challenge, especially if they don't know what information will most help their application get approval.
