Whether you have been permanently injured in a catastrophic accident or you have a disability that affects your ability to work, you may be eligible to receive federal financial assistance. At McGowan & Cecil LLC., we understand that applying for Social Security Disability Insurance in Maryland may seem like a tedious process. However, the more you know about the application process, the better your chances are of being approved for benefits. Avoiding common mistakes that people make during the registration process may help to improve your situation.
One common error people make is that they attempt to fill out the application on their own without any assistance. While some people are able to do so successfully, simple mistakes can complicate the SSDI process and may lead to having your application denied. Furthermore, it is important to include every detail involving your disability. This includes a comprehensive list of your medical providers. If you forget to include a statement or clear details on your application, the SSA may deny your application or it could take longer for your case to be processed.
Once your application is submitted, do not forget to check the status of your case on a regular basis. It is crucial that you don’t forget the deadlines that are set by the SSA. When you have someone who is helping you with the SSDI process, they may be able to ensure you meet those deadlines and expedite your case through the system.
