How Strict is the Social Security Administration About Approving Benefits Claims?
Many people who are disabled are dismayed to find out how difficult it is to get benefits approved due to the stringent requirements put in place by the Social Security Administration.
Although disability benefits are meant to help those who cannot work, more than half of all initial claims for benefits are denied. This forces many people with serious physical or mental conditions to go through a complicated appeals process in order to get benefits -- and some never get their claims approved at all.
The Social Security Administration is very strict about approving applications both because it wants to fight fraud and because it is attempting to make sure that only those who truly cannot work get benefits. That's why you need substantial proof you have a covered disability unless you want your claim to be rejected.
A Los Angeles disability benefits attorney will help you to make your case for why you are deserving of benefits from the Social Security Administration. Contact an attorney as soon as you determine you are disabled and need benefits to make certain that you have the best chance of getting your claim approved.
