For many applicants, the pursuit of Social Security Disability benefits might require more than one application for benefits, an appeal of a decision. Some cases might even require both.
Whether you are dealing with the mild symptoms of your first stroke or trying to cope with multiple severe attacks, you might be eligible for receiving Social Security disability benefits.
Although strokes negatively affect the health of older Americans, roughly 25 percent of all cases impact Americans that are younger than 65 years.
If you suffered a stroke before you reached retirement age, applying for Social Security disability benefits can be the answer to your financial distress.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) looks at several things when determining if you qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, and if you do, how much your monthly benefit payments should be.
They say the proof is in the pudding and for receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), the proof is in the form of medical and non-medical documents. When you apply for SSDI, you need to include evidence of your medical condition, as well as proof of income and earned work credits.
SSDI applications without the proper documentation come back denied by the SSA.
To be awarded Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you must meet both the medical and non-medical requirements as outlined by the Social Security Administration (SSA). While you might be quite ill and meet the medical criteria to be considered disabled, you still might be denied disability benefits. A technical denial occurs when an applicant does not meet the non-medical requirements for disability benefits.
