Social Security Disability is a wide-ranging program that provides relief to many individuals and families across Missouri. As was discussed in a previous post here, there are multiple categories into which an individual's disability may fit. Each of the broad categories is broken down into more specific conditions, and in order to qualify for benefits an individual must be able to show that certain requirements are met and spelled out to qualify for that particular disability.
It may sound simple, but it can actually be quite difficult to meet the federal guidelines for SSD benefits. Typically, an applicant must be able to provide medical documentation and articulate why the disability qualifies for Social Security disability. This means that applicants need to be prepared before filing a claim and have a clear understanding of how the system works. Failing to do so could mean the claim will be denied and applicants will then likely have to go a longer period of time without much needed financial assistance.
