The Social Security Disability Approval Guide has been built to help first-time applicants, denied applicants, and recently disabled persons get the care they need. Social Security was established in order to help citizens provide for their own welfare when they are no longer capable of work so that they do not become a burden on society as a whole.

The lengthy application process often frustrates applicants, and they become neglectful of their applications. As a result, the majority of first-time applicants are denied Social Security disability benefits. An appeals process is in place to get you the care you need and the money you have paid into the system for five or more years. If your claim has been denied, you have the right to appeal the denial and get back-pay for each day since you became disabled.

You may be entitled to legal representation for your claim. A lawyer or advocate may be able to get your claim approved faster because they understand the process, the legal requirements, and the legal language surrounding the applications. The vast majority of applicants don’t have that level of Social Security disability information and can’t navigate the process as smoothly.

If you want to give your application or appeal the best chance at getting approved, complete a free evaluation to see if you qualify for a no-obligation discussion with an attorney or advocate in your area to see how to best proceed with your application for Social Security disability benefits.
