When facing illness fight for your right to SSD benefits

People are often suddenly hit with illnesses and injuries that can make their life difficult. Some of these conditions can happen naturally, while others may be the consequence of a work-related illness. In either case, the condition can leave people unable to work and without the means to support themselves.

In these cases, you have the option of filing for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits can help you pay for your medical expenses and everyday needs. If your illness, occupational disease or other injury will keep you from working for at least one year, then you may qualify.

However, our firm knows that qualifying for SSD benefits for an illness can be difficult. In many cases, there are federal regulations that must be met in order for a person to have a severe enough ailment to qualify. It is important that you understand what must be shown in order to qualify from the beginning of your SSD application.

On your initial application, you will be asked to provide details about your symptoms, illness and diagnosis. These details will become the basis for determining if you are eligible for SSD. If details are missing or poorly explained, then your case could be denied. Further appeals can also be complicated with the missing information.

Our firm knows the importance of this initial application. We can help Pennsylvania residents understand what they need in order to file a successful SSD application. With our help, people can focus on their recovery instead of the paperwork involved in applying for benefits.

Please see our website for more information about how our firm can help people fight for their right to SSD benefits.
