Pushing through the difficult SSD benefits application process

Our readers in Alabama who are familiar with our previous posts know that the process to apply for Social Security Disability benefits can be quite arduous. The Social Security Administration is strict about the eligibility requirements that must be met for disabled workers to receive SSD benefits. At first glance, the requirements and eligibility criteria that must be met can seem pretty daunting. However, if disabled workers believe they are entitled to SSD benefits, it is important to push through what can be a difficult process.

The information sought in Childhood Disability Interviews

As readers in Mobile, Alabama, and the rest of the country know, children with disabilities are entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. In order to determine the eligibility, the Social Security Administration (SSA) conducts Childhood Disability Interview and generates a Child Disability Report. This method is applicable to those children for whom the Child Disability Report is not created online.

Information to be submitted when applying for SSD benefits

One of the most important factors in a successful SSD benefits claim is the documentation that needs to be submitted at the time of applying.

Right to representation for claiming SSD benefits - Part I

Many people in Mobile and nearby areas in Alabama may agree that, despite the guidelines provided by the Social Security Administration, filing a claim for Social Security disability benefits is often challenging, especially for those who are severely disabled. The SSA acknowledges this difficulty and, therefore, it grants SSD benefits claimants the right to representation when it comes to dealings with the SSA.

Can a noncitizen obtain a Social Security number?

Alabama, and the rest of the United States, is home to immigrants from all over the world who come here to make a decent living. As time passes, many of these people may face financial challenges owing to a number of reasons. In due course, they may require financial support in the form of Social Security Retirement income, Social Security Disability income or Supplemental Security income.

How other disability benefits can affect SSD benefits

There are many people here in the Mobile area who receive Social Security Disability benefits for a disabling injury or illness. Many of these people also receive financial benefits from other sources such as the state's workers' compensation program and other state-funded benefits or from private sources such as personal insurance or private pension schemes.

Common terms heard in Social Security Disability hearings

Social Security Disability adjudication hearings contain a great deal of legal jargon that most claimants do not understand. This is why it is never recommended for a claimant to appear before an administrative law judge without legal representation.
