SSDI (Social Security disability insurance) helps people who can't maintain employment because of a medical condition. Successfully applying for SSDI isn't easy though. In fact, it can be downright discouraging. Below, you'll find several facts that can help you not only pursue a successful claim, but prepare your for the legal process ahead.

1) The SSDI process is complicated and difficult to navigate alone.

Filing for SSD isn't easy. Many – if not most – claims are denied the first time. You can file an appeal, but without new information regarding your case, getting the financial assistance you need can be difficult. With the help of a social security disability lawyer, you stand a better chance of obtaining the case outcome you need and deserve.

2) Many claims are denied, but your case isn't hopeless.

For many, a successful claim seems too good to be true, so why bother trying in the first place? The SSA (Social Security Administration) requires rigorous vetting before your claim, but as many as one third of all cases are accepted without appeals.

3) You can be denied SSDI if your doctor says your disabled.

Your doctor doesn't have the authority to make this decision. A medical professional may deem you “disabled,” but can't guarantee SSDI. In fact, SSDI decisions are technically legal, which can only be made by the SSA.

4) Disabilities are common and many people file for SSDI.

The SSA estimates that one in four 20-year-old workers with disability insurance will suffer a disability of some kind before retirement. In other words, 25% of workers will suffer a disability.
