SSD FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Are So Many SSD Claims Denied?

More than 50% of Social Security Disability claims are initially denied. The most common reason is that the application forms were not properly filled out or even completed. Another reason is that the applicant did not supply recent medical records to substantiate their current condition. To be sure that you have the best chance of getting your claim approved, you should consult with a Dallas Social Security Disability lawyer at The Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC.

Am I Eligible For Benefits if I Am Not Permanently Disabled?

Yes, but your disability must be expected to impair your ability to earn an income for at least 12 months. It is also possible to be approved for benefits for a period of disability even after you have recovered and returned to work. This past period of disability is referred to as a "closer period."

I Have Very Little Income. How Can I Afford an Attorney?

You pay nothing unless your disability claim is approved. The amount your lawyer is paid is established by the Social Security Administration and is only paid if you win.

What Types of Disabilities Will SSD Pay For?

Almost any medically diagnosed mental or physical disability could qualify for SSD benefits. The determining factor is not necessarily the type of condition you have, but how much it impairs your ability to provide a sufficient income on which to live. Some people who have cancer or back injuries may be approved but others, with the same conditions that possess a different work skill or occupation, may not.

I Provided a Letter From My Doctor, But Was Refused. Why?

Many doctors do not understand the documentation that is necessary to provide the SSA for your claim to be accepted. A letter from your doctor would never be sufficient without documentation of your tests, diagnosis, and treatment visits. Another reason could be that your medical records are not current enough. Medical records from several years ago will not be acceptable.
