4 FAQs About The Social Security Disability Appeal Process

If you have a disability or medical condition, you may be able to receive Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits provide income supplements if you can’t work because of your medical condition. In order to qualify for Social Security Disability, certain criteria must be met.

Unfortunately, 70 percent of those who apply for Social Security Disability are denied. The good news is that a denial is not always the final answer. If you have applied for Social Security Disability but were denied, you can go through the appeal process.

When you go through this process, you are asking the Social Security Administration (SSA) to take another look at your case. To help you better understand, here are the answers to four frequently asked questions about the Social Security Disability appeal process.

Can VA Disability Benefits Affect Social Security Disability?

Written by BooAdmin. Posted in Blogs

Veterans with disabilities can obtain both VA and Social Security Disability Insurance. However, these two types of insurance have vastly different procedures and considerations. The different systems involved can create confusion for veterans who don’t fully understand how to go about seeking both types of disability insurance. Here is a look at how Social Security Disability and VA disability can work together.

VA Disability Does Not Define Disability Like the SSA Does

You can receive your VA Disability benefits without having a total disability. This can become an important consideration when applying for Social Security Disability Insurance.

A high compensable rating from the VA can mean your condition severely limits your ability to work or quality of life. Nevertheless, this will all depend on your circumstances.
