Important points in a disability application

When a worker becomes disabled, they need financial help, and since most lack private disability insurance, it means they must turn to the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD) program to help keep a roof over their heads and food on their table. The application and approval process can be complex and confusing, but there are some things that you can do to improve your chances of your claim being approved.

PDI could help the SSDI program

Social Security Disability (SSD) is essential. The current SSD program is not replicated by anything provided by any other public or private entity. Many of those on the program suffer from conditions that are progressive in their disabling effects. This means that most of those who are approved for benefits will never become healthy enough to return to work.

SSD: an economic or political problem?

Concerns continue to mount in the face of the impending shortfall of the Social Security Disability (SSD) trust fund. The trust fund, which provides a share of the monthly benefit payments to the programs beneficiaries, is expected to go into negative cash flow within the next year or so.
