Prepare For Long Waits For An SSDI Decision

The wait for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is longer than ever. According to reporting by the Washington Post, the number of people who have died while waiting for a SSDI decision increased 15 percent between 2016 and 2017, from 8,699 deaths to 10,002. Waiting is hard, and it seems that for those waiting for the lifeline of SSDI benefits, it just got a lot harder.

Do You Qualify For A Compassionate Allowance?

The Compassionate Allowance Initiative is a program intended to hasten the process of applying for Social Security Disability claims for people who have conditions that are likely to be fatal. Initially, only 50 conditions were covered under the program. This included those suffering from aggressive types of cancer and conditions related to dementia. However, the list has since been expanded.

I am unable to work. Am I eligible for benefits?

This is a common question asked by individuals who are unable to work due to a physical or mental condition. If you have a diagnosis of a condition that precludes you from holding steady employment, you must take the appropriate steps to ensure that you have financial stability. It is possible that you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits, but you may require legal assistance to secure the support you need.

Applying for SSDI? Here's why you shouldn't miss your doctors' appointments.

Nationwide, nearly two-and-a-half million people applied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) in 2015. But two-thirds of those applicants were denied benefits, mostly for technical or medical reasons.
