Benefit applications drop in West Virginia

According to a recently released report, the Federal Disability Insurance Trust Funds are now expected to run out in 2032 instead of 2028. This is because applications for benefits dropped by 1.5 million in 2017, and it is believed that the economic upturn is partially responsible for that. A stronger economy means more job opportunities for those who may not be able to do manual labor or other physically strenuous tasks.

Questions at SSDI hearings

West Virginia residents who submit applications to the Social Security Administration for disability benefits will have to answer numerous questions about their medical and work histories as well as their medical treatment sources. The answers they provide will be entered on a disability report form to be filed with their disability claim and application.

Disability benefits claim denied? You still have options.

West Virginia individuals who are unable to work due to a disabling medical condition or serious injury could be eligible for certain types of benefits through the Social Security Administration. However, even if you qualify, you may not actually obtain the benefits you need and deserve. In fact, many first-time applications come back denied.

Disability hearings can be positive for SSDI applicants

Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance can be a lengthy, stressful process, particularly when the financial assistance is desperately needed by an applicant. However, the process often involves several stages of review. The initial application and the reconsideration appeal, the first two stages of the process after a West Virginia claimant files an application, are both decided inside the Social Security Administration by disability examiners.
