The Social Security disability process isn't straightforward


When Pennsylvania residents find themselves suddenly disabled, it can be extremely difficult. When an individual has spent the person's entire life working suddenly being unable to hold a job can be jarring. People need to adjust their expectations for their future and for their present. But it can be emotionally and physically difficult to come to terms with this new reality.

Do you have the right to representation in the SSD process?


When an individual is living with a disability, the individual may have many concerns. While an individual's health is likely at the forefront of the person's mind, other considerations come into play. For example, if the disability keeps a person from working, financial concerns may be important to the individual. When people are unable to work because of disability, it can be difficult to know where they are going to get the financial resources they need to pay for their basic expenses.

SSDI benefits are not a given for every applicant


For individuals in Pennsylvania who are living with a disability, earning money can be a concern. The person's disability can make it difficult or impossible for the person to work. With an inability to work, individuals may not have the income they need to support themselves. In these situations, many individuals may hope to rely on Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.

Pennsylvania residents can suffer from a variety of medical conditions. Some of these medical conditions may be physical while others may impact the person's mental health. People who struggle with drugs and alcohol sometimes fall into both categories. They may have health-related issues and struggle with mental illness. People in the situation may be unable to hold a job or to work at all.
