Medical conditions can set on suddenly or gradually over time. Regardless of how they onset, however, they can sometimes be chronic, leaving an individual unable to live a normal life. As was discussed on the blog a few weeks ago, this can be especially true for those suffering some sort of mental disorder, including those that cause anxiety attacks. These medical conditions can render you unable to work, thus making it extremely difficult to find financial stability.
If you find yourself in this situation, then you may be able to qualify for disability income through the Social Security Disability system. However, in order to qualify for benefits, certain requirements must be met. Proving that they have been met can be a fight in and of itself. The government, in an attempt to ensure that those only truly deserving of benefits receive them, often deny initial claims for a myriad of reasons. Yet, if you find yourself facing an initial claim denial, you should not be disheartened.
If your initial claim is denied, then you have the ability to file an appeal. Here, additional legal arguments can be made to show why you qualify for Social Security Disability. Whether you are looking to file an initial claim or appeal a denial though, you have to put your best foot forward, providing convincing evidence and strong legal arguments. This is where a law firm, like Alan E. Dewoskin PC, may be able to help.
