Pursue the Social Security Disability Benefits You Deserve

When a disability prevents Mississippi employees such as yourself from going to work, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. However, do be aware that many applicants face an uphill battle when trying to obtain these critical benefits. If your medical condition is terminal or is expected to last more than one year, you may be entitled to these benefits. But, without the help of an attorney, it typically takes far too long to receive the funds you need.

Federal bureaucracy, application denials, and delays prevent the injured from receiving financial support when work is not possible. A Jackson Social Security disability attorney can cut through the red tape to get families the financial support they need, and our team at ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP has the skill and experience to make a real difference for SSDI applicants and their families.

SSA Disability Definition

To qualify for SSDI benefits, an applicant must meet specific disability requirements:

  • The applicant must not be engaged in a substantial gainful activity (paid employment)
  • The applicant’s inability to work must be caused by a determinable physical/mental impairment
  • The applicant’s condition must be expected to last for at least one year or result in death

If you’re unsure of whether you meet disability requirements, a qualified Social Security disability lawyer at ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP in Jackson, MS can talk to you about your situation and whether your condition and SSDI application meet this standard.

The Unfortunate Reality of SSDI Application Denials

Take one look at the data of SSDI application outcomes, and the high rate of denials can be disheartening. An analysis of the numbers reveals that the Social Security Administration (SSA) approves approximately one out of every four SSDI applications. Additionally, about half of all applications are ultimately approved, and this number includes approvals during the reconsideration and appeal phases of the application process. Simply put, SSDI approval is notoriously difficult.

The SSA is legally permitted to deny an application for technical reasons or medical reasons. A technical denial is issued to applicants who earn more money than is allowed under the substantial gainful employment limit. This limit is used to deny applications of those who are still physically able to engage in paid employment. Other technical denial reasons include failing to qualify for the SSDI program and benefits due to a lack of recent work history or a lack of years worked.

Medical denials are issued if the medical condition is not likely to last for longer than one year, and the condition is not terminal. Further, if the medical condition at issue does not meet the SSA’s definition of a disability, the application may be denied.

Getting Past the Hurdles of SSDI Approval

At ‘Maggio | Thompson, LLP, our team of lawyers uses our experience to give our clients the best chance of having their SSDI applications approved on the first attempt. If your application is denied for any reason, our attorneys can promptly pursue all appeal options to seek the SSDI benefits you need.
