Social Security Disability Process Not Always Easy To Navigate

Though many people often think of older individuals as becoming disabled and needing benefits from the government, disability could affect anyone of any age. Whether having a condition since birth or developing a disability due to injury or illness applies, a person who cannot work due to his or her condition may need Social Security disability benefits. If a person has not yet applied for benefits, understanding the process is key.

How Many Credits Qualify A Person For Social Security Disability?

When qualifying for a government benefits program like Social Security, there are often many hoops to jump through in terms of qualifying. For example, credits are needed in order to qualify for Social Security, and even then, the number of credits can depend on the specific type of benefits a person is trying to obtain. As a result, many Minnesota residents may wonder how credits work and how many they will need for Social Security Disability.

Medical Evidence Is A Vital Part Of SSDI Application Process

Needing Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can feel overwhelming. Many people have legitimate claims to these benefits due to a serious illness or injury that prevents them from working, but the application process can be long and complicated. Unfortunately, many first-time applicants are met with denials, which can feel disheartening. Luckily, Minnesota residents hoping to obtain SSDI benefits can set themselves up for approval as well as possible by providing important evidence during the application process.

Hearing loss doesn't automatically qualify as a disability

People who have hearing loss often find that doing even basic tasks is difficult. The challenges that they experience will often become more pronounced as the hearing loss becomes greater. For some, this might lead to them having significant trouble earning a living.

There are a wide range of potential disabilities

Disabilities can look vastly different from one person to the next. A common assumption is that a disabled person has some sort of injury or condition that limits mobility, like a spinal cord injury that means they're confined to a wheelchair. These issues do happen and they are serious, of course, but it's never wise to assume that all cases look even remotely the same.
