Overcoming the hurdles in receiving SSDI benefits

On Behalf of | Jan 21, 2016 | Social Security Disability, Social Security Disability

On the road to one’s destination, substantial obstacles can arise seemingly out of nowhere that can threaten the entire journey. It is important for individuals to know how to handle these bumps in the road before they become insurmountable obstacles.

This is certainly the case when it comes to the legal system. Georgia residents who apply for Social Security disability benefits may face hurdles along the way toward receiving those benefits. Questions can arise over the medical evidence supporting the disability, for example, such as when a person does not have a disability that is contained on the established listing of impairments.

In other cases, questions can arise regarding the person’s ability to continue working in spite of the disability. These questions may not only arise at the time the individual applies for benefits but after the person has been receiving benefits for quite some time as well.

For instance, last week, this blog discussed the complexities involved when a person returns to work. The Social Security Administration has a trial work period that allows a person to continue receiving SSDI benefits for the first nine months after they return to work. Individuals may also have an extended period of eligibility after the trial work period ends.However, questions involving the trial work period, the extended period of eligibility or the impact of work on the receipt of benefits in general can be complicated. If individuals do not know how to address these issues when they arise, it can derail their eligibility for benefits.
