Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be a complicated process that often ends in frustration.

"How can a lawyer help me apply for Social Security Disability benefits?"

The Social Security Administration has very rigorous standards for applying for Social Security Disability benefits. All the information included in the application must be exactly right. Otherwise, the Administration frequently denies applications deemed incorrect or incomplete.

Some of the most common mistakes people make when applying for Social Security Disability benefits include:

  • Incomplete medical records on their Social Security Disability application
  • Leaving out work details on their Social Security Disability application
  • Reporting income figures that don't match their W-2 tax forms
  • Incorrect employer information

An experienced Social Security Disability lawyer can make sure your application contains all the vital details sought by the Social Security Administration.

What are the guidelines for applying for Social Security Disability benefits?

The Social Security Administration has strict guidelines regarding who is eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits. In order to qualify for SSD benefits, you must:

  • Have or had a job covered by Social Security for 5 out of the last 10 years.
