Giving yourself a winning chance at being approved for SSD benefits

On Behalf of | Nov 18, 2019 | Social Security Disability | 0 comments

When you decide to pursue the process of applying for social security disability benefits in Georgia, the whole ordeal may appear overwhelming at first. However, if you take your time and make sure you are including all of the required details, you may find that the application process is much more efficient and clearer. At the Law Office of Ellene Welsh, we are experienced in helping people to understand the process of applying for SSD benefits. 

Your commitment to filling out the application in its entirety, even if certain parts do not appear to apply to your situation, can give yourself a much better shot at being approved. The chances that your application is denied are much higher if you leave out certain documents, are dishonest in the information you supply, do not provide enough detail about your situation or overlook important aspects. Experts recommend that you read through your application before you even begin to fill it out. Once you begin filling in the information, reread the document in its entirety another time to make sure you did not miss anything important. 

The Social Security Administration says that if your application is denied, you have the option to appeal the decision that was made. When you receive the news that your application has been denied, you should be provided a brief explanation about why your application was denied. It would serve you well to reassess your situation and see what other supportive information you can add to your application before you file an appeal. If you are able to collect new evidence make sure you do not forget to include it in your submission. 

When you understand what steps you can take to better your chances of being approved for social security disability benefits, you may be more confident about being approved. For more information, if you need help applying for SSD, visit our web page.
