Am I Eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits?

Are you disabled and no longer able to work? Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits is the next logical step to take, but the application process is far from easy. In fact, the average final award rate for disabled workers from 2001 through 2010 was only 45%. According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), an average of only 28% of initial worker Social Security Disability claims were approved during that same time period. This means, statistically, that you have about a 1 in 5 chance of having your initial application approved and less than a 1 in 2 chance that your final result will be a positive one.

An Allentown Social Security Disability lawyer at Knafo Law Offices can help if you need to pursue disability benefits. We understand these proceedings and can help to turn the tables in your favor. The above statistics are disheartening, but properly filing your SSD application with all necessary medical documentation will greatly increase your chances of an approval.
