Tips for Successful Social Security Disability Applications

As we mentioned in a previous blog entry, workers’ compensation claimants in Pennsylvania are often eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits as well as workers’ comp benefits. Any increase in income to an injured worker can be the difference between financial survival and ruin.

The Social Security Disability application process can be very difficult and intimidating. Approximately two-thirds of all SSD applications will be denied at the initial level. A recent article on the internet described seven helpful tips. We thought this article may be of benefit to our readers.

While we at Brilliant & Neiman LLC limit our entire practice to Pennsylvania workers’ compensation cases, and do not handle SSD matters, we have relationships with other attorneys throughout PA, providing our clients access to quality legal representation for any legal matter, including SSD.
