Social Security Disability

Many people who are denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) don’t really understand why. Many times it’s a medical reason; sometimes it’s a technical or legal reason.  The younger you are, the harder it generally will be to qualify for SSDI. This is partly because you don’t just have to prove that you are medically prevented from working. You must also prove that you’ve paid into the system long enough to earn the right to receive payments.

Sleep apnea is a very common medical condition, with roughly 22 million Americans suffering from some form of the condition. This is according to the American Sleep Apnea Association. However, there is a broad range of severity, and no two cases are exactly the same. The U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) no longer recognizes sleep apnea, which was previously listed under Section 3.10 of the SSA Regulations. However, SSA does still allow a potential claimant to receive disability for respiratory conditions under the same Section of the regulations, provided the condition is severe enough to warrant such a disability finding. Here is what you need to know about sleep apnea and social security disability.

Many veterans receive Social Security benefits. But it’s important to understand the fundamental differences between the two programs, because there are different types of “benefits” available under both systems (VA and SSA). Since VA disability compensation is an earned benefit and is nontaxable, it is not generally used to offset your SSDI benefits. But other benefits may have an influence on each other. Here’s what you need to know about social security and VA disability benefits.

Getting your application for Social Security disability benefits approved can be a long, difficult, and frustrating process. While the Social Security Administration denies about three-quarters of SSD applications upon initial review, the majority of applicants that seek help from a disability lawyers are eventually approved. Sometimes, those seeking disability benefits are tempted to exaggerate or even falsify information to increase their chances of approval. Others that had to fight to receive disability compensation are hesitant to report information that may put their benefits in jeopardy, such as an improved medical condition or supplementary income. The Social Security Administration has strict rules and consequences for SSD fraud and abuse. Learn more about what constitutes Social Security disability fraud and how you can avoid it.

SSDI is reserved for people with impairments severe enough to keep them from performing any kind of meaningful work. It is not intended for partial or short term disability. Any disability that qualifies you for SSDI benefits is a serious condition. However, the Social Security Administration (SSA) recognizes some medical conditions as so debilitating that there is little doubt that the affected individual will be approved for disability benefits. These are referred to as automatic disability impairments, and the SSA may offer automatic approval for those diagnosed.

If you are unable to work due to disability but your initial application for Social Security Disability Insurance was denied, you are not alone.

Social Security Disability Insurance is a program that provides medical coverage and cash payment assistance for those who are unable to support themselves due to a permanent disability. Because it is intended for those who cannot work, the amount of work you are allowed to do while receiving disability benefits is very limited.

It often takes time, effort,legal assistance, and some hoop-jumping to get your SSDI application approved. So when your health improves, the choice to return to work (and forfeit disability payments) can be a tough decision.

If you are a disabled veteran, you may already know it is possible to qualify for bothveterans’ disability benefits andsocial security disability. The rules and qualifications for each program are unique. You might qualify for one program but not the other, or you may be able to receive payments from both programs concurrently. Disabled veterans are encouraged to apply forall disability programs for which they may qualify. The Veterans Benefits Administration (VA) is usually the first stop for veterans in need of disability assistance. When you apply for veterans’ disability compensation for your service-connected disability, the VA will assign you a disability rating of 0-100%. Your VA compensation rating affects whether you are entitled to benefits and how much you will receive. When you apply for social security disability, the Social Security Administration will consider your VA compensation rating when making decisions on your application.
