Know your rights when you are filing for disability

Most people want to work at their job and eventually retire. Unfortunately, there are times when an injury means that you aren't able to keep on working. Instead, you will likely have to file for disability coverage so that you can still get the money that you need to survive.

We understand that this is a difficult time for you, because the application process isn't exactly easy to work through. When you are ready to file for disability, you should make sure that you are as detailed as possible. There are some very strict guidelines for who is able to get disability. If your case isn't perceived to meet these guidelines, you will likely be denied.

In fact, don't let it surprise you if you are denied the first time around. This is very possible, but it doesn't mean that you won't get the benefits eventually. The initial decision isn't final and can be appealed if you don't agree with it.

There is a good chance that you will have to appeal the initial decision that is made in your case. If you do need to do this, you need to act quickly. There are very strict timelines when you are filing an appeal. The procedures are also very stringent, so make sure that you understand what you need to do.

We are here to help you with your disability claim. Whether you are filing the initial claim or working on an appeal, we can help you to learn about your rights and get your case moving forward. You don't have to navigate all the red tape on your own.
