Bensalem, PA Disability (SSDI) Lawyer

We rely on our jobs to create income so that we can pay for our housing expenses, utility bills, groceries, and other day-to-day costs.  When a person loses his or her ability to work and earn income due to a disability, it can be a frightening time.  When you’re trying to cope with the physical, emotional, and financial effects of your health condition and its treatments, it can seem like an impossible task to fight your way through the grueling social security disability benefits application process.

While disability benefits are a critical form of financial assistance for millions of Americans, the tough reality is that being approved by the SSA (Social Security Administration) is notoriously difficult. Statistically speaking, more people will be denied than accepted at the initial application stage.  During reconsideration after an initial rejection, the likelihood of having your claim approved drops even lower.  In 2007, the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives recorded denial rates of:

  • Initial Application: 65.4%
  • Reconsideration: 87.3%

Being approved to receive monthly benefits is a challenge, and the SSA may deny your claim in spite of detailed medical and employment information.  Fortunately, legal help is on your side when you need it most. To speak confidentially about your case, call the experienced disability benefits attorneys of Young, Marr & Associates at (609) 755-3115 in New Jersey or (215) 701-6519 in Pennsylvania today.

How Do I Get Approved for Disability Benefits in Bensalem, PA?

Some of the SSA’s requirements for benefits approval remain consistent across disabilities.  For example:

  • All disabilities must last (or be expected to last) for at least 12 months.
  • All disabilities must be severe enough to prevent the applicant from working both at their old position, and at a new, alternative position.

However, many of the SSA’s requirements for disability approval vary by condition, and each disability will be evaluated for severity based on its own specific set of points.  For example, diabetes will be evaluated under a different set of requirements than a heart transplant.

The SSA uses its official Listing of Impairments to help determine whether an applicant may be eligible for monthly benefits.  But even if your condition is not included in the Listing, you could still be approved.  Many rare conditions, for example, are not mentioned in the Listing simply because they are uncommon.

The Listing of Impairments is broken down by category (e.g. respiratory system, musculoskeletal system), and each category is broken down further by specific condition.
