Getting Approved for Disability Benefits

It's important to check your SSD claim status to find out if it's approved or denied.I’m not sure what you know about getting approved for Disability Benefits, so I’m going to explain things as if this is the first time you are seeing this information.

The first thing you have to keep in mind is that it is not impossible but does require time and patience. The statistics say that over 60% of people who file for disability are disapproved on the first try. This means 40% of you will get approved on the first try and I’m going to do what I can to get you into that 40% group.  Is this possible?  Yes it is!!!  Is it guaranteed?  No.  There are a lot of variables that can turn a case one way or another, that is why you need to take things one step at a time and do things right the first time.

You have a couple different options when filing for disability.  First you can file for free with the SSA.  This option works if you are willing to put in the time to read and understand everything you need to do and supply all the paperwork that is needed the way it is required to be filed.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying not to do this, but be aware of what tasks lay ahead.  You will need to contact the SSA and let them know you want to apply for disability benefits.  They will then send you a packet of information that you have to fill out.  Once you have read through everything and hopefully understand, then you will have to start filling out the paperwork.  If you have problems you can always contact the SSA office to get help.  You know how well government offices work, so this should not be a problem.  You finish up your paperwork and submit it to the SSA and hope for the best.

Option 2, the one I recommend.  Talk to someone who knows what they are doing, talk to an advocate. These people work with the SSA every day and know how the system works.  You can save yourself a lot of time and anguish by talking to an advocate to see if you may qualify for disability benefits.  Just because you have a disability, does not mean the government will pay you benefits.

I know you are wondering what it would cost to talk to an advocate, well your conversation is free.  You can read all day long on disability benefits and come to a conclusion that you may qualify, but how confident are you?  Are you willing to go through all the time and hassle to fill out the government paperwork just to find out that you are not qualified?

This is where an advocate comes in.  They will have a discussion with you and find out what your situation is and if you meet some of the minimum requirements to get approved.  They will let you know if you have a good chance of getting approved or not. You do not have to do business with an advocate just because they talk to you, so why not get the information you need before you apply?

You have nothing to lose talking to an advocate but you may have a better chance of getting disability benefits if you do.
