Surprise, Arizona is a fast growing city in the Phoenix metro area which reported a population of 117,517 in 2010 – up from 30,848 in 2000. The rapid growth and expansion in the area has brought many new businesses to the city and key industrial sectors contributing to the local economy include education, healthcare, retail trade, finance and insurance.
Surprise is serviced by the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) Region 9 district office in San Francisco, CA. That office sees around 15,000 new claims each year from the State of Arizona and distributes Social Security Disability benefits to more than 172,700 beneficiaries annually.
Social Security Disability Insurance benefits are provided to individuals who have no employment income as a result of total or complete disability. To qualify for SSDI, you must not only meet the SSA’s medical requirements, you must also have accumulated sufficient work credits throughout the course of your employment, specifically during the previous decade before you submit a disability claim. If you do not meet the work credit stipulations but do satisfy medical requirements for SSDI, you may still be eligible to receive Suppemental Security Income benefits.
Apply for Surprise Social Security Disability Benefits
The Surprise SSD benefits application process is long and complicated. For this reason, and because financial concerns related to disability benefits are so important for disabled workers, many applications choose to seek legal assistance. Getting help from a Surprise disability attorney early in the application process can result in a more favorable outcome.
The SSA only approves 28.4 percent of initial claims reviewed from Arizona applicants, leaving all others to additional reviews if they wish to continue trying for SSD benefits. With only about 12 percent of those who receive a second review of their claim being found eligible for benefits, the majority of people who are initially denied must proceed through the appeals process, sending their cases in front of an administrative law judge for a final decision.
Most initial Surprise Social Security Disability benefit claims are denied because they lack sufficient medical documentation or because disabled individuals have not received the specific tests or treatments the SSA required with their particular disabilities. It is in your best interest to hire a Surprise SSD attorney to assist you in compiling documentation and filing your application.
Familiarity with the SSDI and SSI process makes it possible for a Surprise disability attorney to help you get the appropriate medical care for meeting SSA disability requirements. This increases your chances of being found eligible for benefits during the initial review process and reduces the likelihood that you’ll need to go through a second review and an appeal hearing.
