You’ve suffered health problems that leave you unable to work. But to win benefits under Social Security Administration (SSA) rules, the SSA has to certify you as officially “disabled.” It’s important to know what you need to do prior to applying for disability.

The agency makes this determination based on how your medical condition is affecting your ability to work. It considers you disabled if:

  • You can no longer do the work you did before;
  • The SSA decides you are unable to adjust to other work because of your medical condition(s); and
  • Your disability has lasted or is likely to last for at least one year or to result in death.

Is Applying For SSDI Difficult?

Yes. You may think it’s as simple as explaining your situation to Social Security and then you get disability benefits. In reality, it’s not that easy.

Applying for Social Security Disability is a complex legal matter. You must prove to Social Security that you are “disabled” according to their legal definition. And you must include thorough medical evidence that can prove your disability clearly.

We often see applications denied for mistakes as small as clerical errors, or even if your medical evidence is presented incorrectly.

We can help.

Hanley Disability has extensive knowledge and experience helping people with their disability applications. We’ve helped people win disability benefits for nearly half a century by focusing on individual care and attention for cases such as yours.

We know the system, the people in it, and most importantly, we can give you the best chance to win the benefits you deserve. Let us help you.

Why are most Initial Applications Denied?

The Social Security Disability system involves thousands of rules, regulations, and procedures.

You can be denied benefits if your doctor doesn’t know the legal definition of disability, or if a Social Security employee fails to obtain medical evidence on your behalf.

The good news? You can appeal.

Social Security features a robust appeals process with multiple opportunities to win benefits. With the right disability representative, you’ll have the best shot at winning the benefits you deserve.
