Do I Qualify For SSDI Benefits?

The law is clear about who can access SSDI benefits. According to the Social Security Administration, to receive your earned SSDI benefits, you must prove:
  • You are an American citizen who qualifies for Social Security benefits
  • You have a serious medical condition
  • You cannot perform a job as a result of that medical condition
  • The medical condition will last, or has lasted, a minimum of a full calendar year
If you meet all of those requirements, you may qualify for SSDI benefits and can begin the application process.

How Do I Apply For SSDI Benefits?

The application process for SSDI is not easy. The Social Security Administration office is bureaucratic and requires an exhaustive level of detail in the application. This can be a stress-inducing process even for those familiar with the system. There are a lot of documents you will need to collect before you begin the application process, including the following:
  • All the forms from the Social Security Administration office, including the Social Security Statement
  • Birth certificate or other proof of birth and proof of US citizenship
  • Your W-2s or self-employment tax returns in the past year
  • Discharge papers if you are former military
  • Medical reports and records from your physicians
Once you have gathered those documents, you will begin filling out the report. It contains eleven different sections that require information ranging from your education and training to the medications you are taking to manage your condition. Then, you will have to go through a thorough consultative medical exam to confirm your claims. If there is any missing information or minor inconsistencies, your claim could be denied.

What Happens If My Cedar Park, TX SSDI Claim Is Denied?

Receiving a denial for SSDI after going through the lengthy and stressful application process can be extremely disheartening.

Appealing Your SSDI Benefits Denial Requires Expertise

The SSDI appeals process is even more complex than the application process. You will have to submit your appeal to the denial within 60 days, which does not leave much time. Afterward, you may have to go through four different levels of appeal:
  • Reconsideration
  • Hearing by an administrative judge
  • Review by the appeals council
  • Federal Court Review
During this process, you will have to provide evidence and documentation for the appeal, and you may even have to attend in-person hearings. The experience can be stressful because those handling your appeal will question your claims and make you feel as though they are not taking your medical condition seriously. What’s more, the hearings can drag on, placing your financial security in jeopardy. Fortunately, you do not have to face the entire process alone.
