Many disability applicants mistakenly believe they can complete their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) application and thirty days later the disability check will be in their mailbox or the disability check will be deposited in their checking account.
If you are disabled with a severe health condition and are not able to work for at least 12 continuous months you may qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI). SSDI benefits are a governmental disability program managed by the Social Security Administration (SSA) for workers who are disabled and have earned enough work credits to be insured for benefits.
It is not unusual for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to deny a disability case. In fact, reports indicate your chances of receiving a denial the first time you apply for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income benefits could be as high as 70%. So what do you do when you receive a SSI or SSDI denial? You have three options.
