Social Security disability benefits can provide a financial life raft to those who are unable to work on account of a debilitating injury or illness. That being said, not everyone who thinks they are disabled will be deemed worthy of benefits. This is because the Social Security Administration strictly scrutinizes all SSD claims it receives, looking for any reason to give a denial. So, disabled individuals need to know the evidence the SSA is looking for and how best to present it in an attempt to meet federal requirements.
Although an individual can certainly choose to pursue their claim on their own, many find the assistance of an experienced legal professional to be extremely valuable. After all, attorneys in this field know the process, how to satisfy certain disability requirements and how to aggressive appeal adverse decisions.
