Addressing the growing SSDI backlog

It is not easy to start the Social Security disability application process. While these benefits might be necessary, it can be overwhelming to compile all this information. Even when an applicant believes and is confident that they can evidence that they have an eligible disability, it is possible to still be denied benefits. Missing information, incomplete information and gaps in an application can cause it to be a lengthy process to recover disability benefits. In some cases, this means going through the appeals process, which is even more overwhelming that the initial application process.

Determining SSDI eligibility can be challenging

Knowing that you are under the legal age of retirement but are unable to work due to injury or illness may cause you to worry about your future, especially if you happen to be the sole breadwinner in your family. The U.S. government understands the need to help workers who are no longer able to carry out their duties or earn income because of physical or mental disability. The Social Security Disability Insurance program works to provide benefits to sick or injured workers who satisfy qualification requirements. 

What are the different types of disabilities?

When people in New Jersey and elsewhere hear the word disability, they often have a specific image in their mind. This might be a person in a wheel chair or one that is noticeably disabled by the naked eye. The truth of the matter is that disabilities can take on many forms, impacting a person in a wide variety of ways. Some disabilities are manageable, allowing a person to lead a normal life. On the other hand, others find it challenging to carry out the day-to-day activities, making it even impossible to hold down a job.

Work credits and Social Security disability

Let's face it. Suffering an injury is painful. Even something minor can cause very noticeable and distracting pain for weeks at a time. Thus, when an individual in New Jersey or elsewhere suffers a serious injury, he or she is likely to endure much pain that impacts many facets of his or her life. In some cases, an injury could be so severe that it is difficult to lead a normal life and impossible to hold down a job. This can present many financial challenges.

A sudden disability caused by a serious illness can shake up our world, making it challenging to navigate.
