Benefits:What Are My Chances?
Posted in: Benefits on August 18th, 2011

chances of benefitsIf you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance, you might wonder what your overall chances are of getting approved for benefits.  After all, with all the dire news about long wait times and the fact that having poor medical documentation can stagnate your application, you might be feeling a little bit negative about the entire process.  It is important to go into the application process with as much knowledge as you can, and that includes understanding what your chances are of coming out with disability benefits on the other side.

The Stats

In 2005, it was shown that about 39% of all applicants for Social Security Disability Insurance end up being approved and awarded benefits.  These statistics are a little bit out of date, and the fact that they were taken before the economic collapse and the sudden influx of applications for Social Security Disability Insurance indicates that the overall statistics are a little less cheery in the present – not that the number 39% implies ease of application in the first place.

If you want to up your chances of being approved for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, you might want to consider hiring representation.  This is not to say that there is no chance for you if you apply without help, but having a disability lawyer can make the process of claims and appeal go much smoother.  It has been shown that nearly 90% of applicants for Social Security Disability Insurance end up hiring representation should their case get to the appeals process.  If you have applied for Social Security Disability Insurance and been denied, this might be a good choice for you too – the appeals process can be even more confusing and convoluted than the initial application!
