SSDI benefits claims for debilitating brain injuries often denied

When a California resident suffers a brain injury, he or she may be unable to earn an income. While the fact that Social Security Disability Benefits might be available can provide comfort, the navigation of the application for benefits could be a nightmare. Reportedly, many SSDI claims are rejected at the application stage.

With tenacity and legal guidance, SSDI claims can be successful

The financial threats that sudden disability can bring could be devastating, but that is only one part of the struggle. Knowing that a significant percentage of applications for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits in California are rejected could be discouraging. However, SSDI rejection often results from simple errors made by the applicants, such as providing inaccurate or insufficient information or explanations. An applicant can improve his or her chances of receiving benefits by gaining knowledge of the claims process.

SSDI: Backlog causes hardship for applicants waiting for approval

A news report recently drew attention to the number of people nationwide, including in California, who are waiting for the Social Security Administration to process applications for assistance. Reportedly, about 1 million people are waiting to find out whether they qualify for SSDI, and many have died while waiting for a response. A former truck driver explained the effect this situation has on those who have to go on living while waiting for approval by the association.

Claiming SSDI for rare diseases can be challenging

Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance is a complicated process to navigate. If the claim is based upon contracting a rare disease, it could be even more challenging. There are thousands of rare diseases, and disability benefits may be a great help for individuals with rare disorders. SSDI is a program offered by the federal government, providing financial assistance for families or individuals in need.
