Almost all disability applications are initially denied, and over 75 percent are denied again on a second review known as “reconsideration.”
The Social Security Disability programs provide a safety net for millions of disabled Americans. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays benefits to qualified workers who have become disabled. Meanwhile, the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program provides benefits to severely disabled individuals with very limited income and resources who are ineligible for SSDI or who are only eligible for a small amount of disability insurance (SSDI) benefits.
The Social Security Administration’s SSDI and SSI programs have become overburdened by need and regulation. Benefit applications require numerous documents, and any omission or discrepancy of the proper information can hurt a claim. Almost all disability applications are initially denied, and over 75 percent are denied again on a second review known as “reconsideration.”
Although you are not required to have an attorney to file for SSDI or SSI benefits, statistics show that retaining a capable attorney greatly increases the likelihood that you will be successful with your SSDI or SSI claim. If the administration resists approving your claim, an experienced disability attorney should be able to make sure that your case moves through the social security system as quickly and efficiently as possible.
