In most cases, people do not like to face the idea that they may no longer be able to work and provide for their families. Social Security Disability, or SSD, is in place to help people cope financially when they lose their ability to provide. Being able to retain their independence and still participate in their family life is an extra bonus of being eligible for the program.
The application process for SSD benefits can make people want to tear out their hair, to say the least. It can be tedious, time consuming and extremely frustrating for applicants. It is not necessarily the SSD application that causes such frustration. For many, it is gathering the documentation required to support the completed application. It is a lot to cope with since some of the required documentation can take applicants rather far back in time. Adding to the frustration, applicants also have to work with their health care providers to collect more current information.
Instead of shrinking away from social security disability simply because the application process can be challenging, you may want to consider seeking professional assistance. Working with someone who fully understands the social security disability laws in Pennsylvania offers many benefits. Some of these benefits include:
— Guidance in determining if you are eligible for the program
— Assistance gathering documentation
— Preparing you for your disability hearing
— Assistance working with your medical professionals
— Appealing a denied disability claim
— Information about workers’ compensation and SSD if you were hurt on the job
Having an experienced Pennsylvania attorney watching your back can prevent devastating delays and put you on the path to financial independence as quickly as possible. We invite you to explore our SSD web page to learn more about the process of applying for the program.
