Delays or rejections in Social Security disability applications can create immense hardships for individuals who are already dealing with sickness, injury, or other challenges.
The process of applying for disability benefits can be lengthy and complex, leaving applicants in a state of uncertainty and financial strain. The prolonged wait times or denials can result in a lack of necessary medical care, increased financial burdens, and emotional distress.
Without the vital support provided by Social Security disability benefits, individuals facing health-related struggles may find it difficult to access essential resources and maintain a basic quality of life. Swift and fair evaluation of disability claims is crucial to ensure that those in need receive the assistance they require in a timely manner.
These cases are becoming more common. Check out CBS News highlighting the story of an applicant. Despite being unable to hold a glass of water or write at times due to pain, this former office worker is only eligible for about $100 of assistance per week.
