Social Security Disability – Who, What, and Why?

Social Security Disability can be a real help when you are disabled and can’t work. It can also help you if your disability only prevents you from working as much, as in working a part-time job. We refer to Social Security Disability as America’s safety net before because it is exactly that. It consists of monthly cash benefits you can receive during your time of dire need. However, with this in mind, who gets it, what does it take to apply for it and why do these applicants get this benefit? Our social security disability lawyers at the Lake of the Ozarks are here to answer that. If you find yourself needing assistance when applying for Social Security Disability, call Deputy and Mizell today at 573-346-9990.

What?

There is a process to applying for Social Security Disability. Once you apply, it typically takes 90 to 120 days for the Social Security Administration to review your claim and either approve or deny your application. It is extremely vital that you fill the application out completely and often applicants will have questions. Our Social Security Disability lawyers in Camdenton have helped several applicants throughout this process and you can call 573-346-9990 for a free consultation.

 

Why?

These applicants get this benefit because they have went through the extensive process and their claim for Social Security Disability has been approved. It is important to remember that approximately only 30 percent of Social Security disability applications are approved at the first stage. If you are approved, you will begin receiving disability benefits.
