When considering disability tax benefits, it can be a daunting task. You may ask yourself questions like:
- Am I going to make a mistake on my application?
- Will I be denied coverage?
- What do I need to be sure I’ll qualify?
These are valid questions, as many Americans struggle with the process, which can mean delays with payments, having to appeal an initial denial, and more challenges. Thankfully, our knowledgeable team at BenefitsClaim.com has experience helping thousands of people across the country with the particulars of their applications. Let’s learn more about disability insurance and how our staff can help.
Around 2 million people apply for SSDI benefits each year, but the Social Security Administration (SSA) only approves about 37%. The result is over 700,000 ineligible applicants being denied; most of them after waiting more than two years. At BenefitsClaim.com, we walk you through each step of the disability benefits application process.
