What should you do if you're denied Social Security Disability?

If your application for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) has been denied, then know that you're not alone. Many applicants have their requests for benefits rejected at first pass. Some individuals have their applications denied multiple times. There are ways that you can appeal the Social Security Administration's (SSA's) decision though.

What medical conditions qualify for Social Security Disability?

Many applicants diagnosed with a condition that falls on the Social Security Administration's (SSA's) "Listing of Medical Impairments" will generally qualify to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). Individuals who've been diagnosed with other illnesses or impairments that aren't listed there may also be eligible for these benefits if they meet certain additional requirements.

What is Supplemental Security Income, and are you eligible?

If you are unable to work because of a medical condition, you may be wondering what this means for your financial health. It can be difficult to pay for things you need, get medical care and simply make ends meet when you do not have sufficient income. If you find yourself in this position, you may be eligible for disability income from the Social Security Administration.

How do your living arrangements impact your SSI benefits?

If you're considering applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, it's essential to understand what factors affect your eligibility and the amount you're able to receive under the program's regulations.

Can a person return to work and still collect benefits?

They can help a person continue to provide for their family but, if a person wants to return to work, will they lose these benefits?
