Using Social Security Disability benefits properly

Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) are important for thousands of people every year in California. These benefits are paid to people who are unable to work for at least 12 months because of an illness or an injury. Once the benefit checks begin arriving, it's up to you what you do with them. Today, we will discuss the best ways for you to use the benefits you receive from a disability claim.

How to prepare for a Social Security hearing

Having to file for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is a difficult time in your life. You were likely injured on the job, or were diagnosed with an illness that prevents you from working. What can make matters worse is when your initial claim is denied. You do have the right to appeal and will need to attend a hearing. Here are some tips on how to prepare for the hearing.

What do you need to apply for Social Security Disability?

If a physical or mental disability limits your ability to work, you may qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. To receive benefits, you must have a condition that has lasted for a minimum of 12 months or is likely to result in your passing.

Could your Social Security disability claim be denied?

If you file a Social Security disability claim, you hope that you begin to receive benefits in the immediate future. Unfortunately, the exact opposite may happen. You could receive a denial letter, thus forcing you to learn more about your legal rights and the next steps to take.

Understanding the Compassionate Allowance program

One thing you should understand as a person looking into obtaining Social Security Disability (SSD) is what a compassionate allowance is. The Compassionate Allowances program is designed to help quickly identify a disease or illness, making it faster for a person with a specified disease or illness to obtain SSD.

Disability benefits: The reality of disability in the USA

Social Security Disability is sometimes talked about as if it's something people don't deserve or that costs others money, but the reality is that it has a very important place in the United States' benefit programs for workers. Like any other part of the Social Security system, it is meant to provide a safety net for workers who get hurt before they reach the age of retirement. As of April 2013, 8.9 million workers and 2.1 million dependents relied on disability income in some way.

Dealing with Social Security denials is a difficult task

If you get denied for Social Security Disability, one of the things you may want to know is what you can do to get approved. If this isn't your first denial, then it's already a reality that you don't have many options.

You have the right to appeal if denied Social Security Disability

People find themselves in need of Social Security Disability benefits for many different reasons. Perhaps you got hurt at work, suffering a traumatic or repetitive stress injury. Maybe you experienced a motor vehicle collision that resulted in permanent injury. Perhaps a progressive illness has left you unable to work or care for yourself. Whatever the reason, you believe that Social Security Disability will help you survive, only to find your application denied.

Obtaining Social Security Disability is possible with good help

Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits are meant to be there for the people who need them. If you're hurt and unable to work for a long period of time, you may qualify for these benefits depending on your work history.
