“Look before you leap” is a common expression our readers have likely heard before. This concept is perhaps never truer than when it comes to applying for Social Security Disability benefits. As many Cincinnati residents probably know, applying for SSD benefits can oftentimes be a complex initiative to undergo, requiring hours of research and careful attention to detail when filling out the application itself.

So, what do you do if you run into problems with the SSD benefits application process? What if you don’t know which documents to include with your application? Or you don’t know if your medical condition meets the federal definition of disability? What if you are unsure of how many work credits you have earned?

Like many other problems we encounter in life, it can be important to get help when you are beginning the process of applying for SSD benefits. With the right approach, you can work toward submitting an application to the Social Security Administration that clearly demonstrates your eligibility for SSD benefits.

The unfortunate fact is that most SSD applications are denied the first time around. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration provides a robust appeals process. With help from a skilled attorney, you can improve your chances the first time around, and navigate your way through the appeals process, if necessary.
