How to Get Approved for Disability Insurance
Posted in: Benefits on April 1st, 2013

Many people who need the benefits of disability insurance get denied after their first application. This creates a serious situation, as they are unable to work yet have no income to sustain the cost of living. With an estimated 64% of applicants being rejected at the initial stage of their disability insurance application, it’s no wonder that many are seeking the assistance of advocates or learning how they can properly file on their own.

Making Your Case for Disability

Remember, the biggest key to being approved for disability insurance is being able to prove the case that you cannot work due to a disability. Stringent checks are in place to ensure that people don’t try to take advantage of the system. To make your disability case effective, highlight facts that showcase the inability or hardship of working. These include:

· Age. The Social Security Administration has created a grid that measures residual functional capacity. In other words, they have the ability to predict the productivity of a person based on certain conditions such as age. Since the body is frailer at an older age, emphasizing older age can help in a disability case. Those who are 55 years old or older benefit the most from the residual functional capacity grid and have the greatest chance of being approved for disability insurance based on age.
· Education. The less education one has, the less opportunities they have to work. Thus, someone with a high school or less than high school level education has a greater chance of being approved for disability insurance than someone with a college degree. Of course, education isn’t a deciding factor, as disability is the key, but it is certainly a dynamic influence.
· Physician reports. Be sure to go to your doctor regularly for check ups. The more documentation you can have on your disability, the stronger the application will be. For any extra guidance throughout the process, there are attorneys and other advocates dedicated to helping people get the disability insurance benefits that they deserve.
