According to The Social Security Administration’s most recent report, the percentage of applicants awarded benefits at the initial claims level averaged 23%. This means that almost 77% of all applicants that try to get social security disability benefits on their own, are initially denied.
Mike, a Raleigh resident, was part of that 77% that was denied Social Security Disability benefits after initially applying. Mike felt confused and overwhelmed by the long and complicated process of trying to get disability benefits, which is why he called to Henson Fuerst for help.
We immediately began working on his claim for disability benefits in North Carolina, and after a lot of paperwork, numerous phone calls, and two hearings, we won Mike the Social Security Disability benefits he needed and deserved.
Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income are benefits programs designed to serve as safety nets for people who are unable to work due to injury or illness. If you’re unable to work due to a disease or injury, you may be eligible for SSD benefits regardless of your age.
Applications for SSD claims can be difficult to file, and most initial applications are denied. Even if you have a valid claim, your application could still be rejected. And many times for a small technical error, or paperwork not being filled out correctly.
