A Quick Disability Determination (QDD) is similar to a compassionate allowance. However, there are some important differences that North Carolina residents should understand that exist between the two programs. This post will address what makes QDD unique, but as with all of the other information contained on this site, readers should not take the contents of this post to be legal advice.
If a Charlotte resident cannot work due to a mental or physical disability stemming from an injury or illness they should be able to receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. However, only a qualifying disability may get the applicant the support they need in the form of benefits. A disability is not the only requirement a person must satisfy in order to get help from the Social Security Administration. An applicant for disability benefits must also have enough work credits from their past employment to qualify them for help.
Individuals who have looked into applying for Social Security Disability benefits may believe that once they are approved for benefits that those benefits will not be terminated. While this is sometimes true, in other situations recipients of disability benefits may have their benefits stopped if the Social Security Administration finds that they are no longer disabled. There is a review process for disabilities that North Carolina residents can expect to face if they are approved to receive disability benefits.
Many North Carolina residents wear glasses or contact lenses to improve the quality of their eye sight. It is possible for people with significant near or far-sightedness to improve their vision to the point that they are able to engage in the careers and activities of their choosing. However, not all individuals with vision problems are able to find this level relief through corrective measures.
Not long ago this Charlotte-based Social Security disability benefits law blog offered its readers a post on the reconsideration hearing process for disability benefits applicants. An applicant's claim may be given a reconsideration hearing if it is initially denied. A process is in place to make sure that the claim receives a new review in the reconsideration hearing and in some cases an applicant may receive a positive outcome at the conclusion of the process.
Not long ago this Charlotte Social Security disability legal blog discussed the incredibly long waits that some Americans must face when their disability benefits' applications are initially denied. The first step in having one's denial reviewed is to request a reconsideration hearing. A reconsideration hearing must be requested within 60 days of when an applicant receives notice that their SSD benefits application has been denied; this post will briefly explain what happens during a reconsideration hearing.
It is not uncommon for an applicant for Social Security disability benefits to have their initial application denied. A denial is not necessarily a permanently closed door for someone who is unable to work, but rather another hurdle they must overcome in order to get the help they need and deserve. After receiving a denial of benefits letter a North Carolina resident may choose to have their matter reviewed and submit an appeal.
Disability benefits are often available for men and women who suffer from physical and mental disabilities that keep them from working. All throughout North Carolina individuals rely on these benefits to ensure that they can live their lives and meet the financial commitments that they are responsible for. However, not all readers may know that individuals who receive disability benefits from the Social Security Administration can have those benefits extended to certain members of their families.
It is an unfortunate fact that many valid applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied at the initial application stage. This is because the applicants may have not provided enough information about their conditions to prove that they are unable to work or because their documentation regarding their disabilities is otherwise lacking. This post will share some of the other reasons that Charlotte residents may see their disability benefits applications denied.
Applying for Social Security Disability benefits can be an important step in the life of a Charlotte resident. After experiencing the devastation of not being able to work for one's own income, preparing an application for Social Security Disability benefits can give a person hope that their future will have some financial security. However, not every application that is submitted to the Social Security Administration is approved on its first pass and unfortunately those that are initially denied and then appealed can take a very long time to resolve.
