Can my SSD benefits be suspended and why?

Oklahomans who believe they meet the requirements to get Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for an illness, condition or injury might feel optimistic about their chances to be approved when making a claim. However, there are situations in which the Social Security Administration (SSA) will stop the benefits prior to a determination.

Do I have recourse if I think the disability judge was unfair?

Oklahomans who have an injury or condition that they believe is of sufficient severity that they should get Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be frustrated when they are denied Social Security. While there are four levels of appeal to seek an overturning of the decision and to be granted SSD benefits, some cases are more complex. It is possible for a case to be denied not on its merits, but because the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) was unfair. For people who believe this has happened in their situation, it is important to understand the process of filing a complaint.

Medical care impact on SSDI claims

For some people, receiving social security disability insurance is essential to their survival. Therefore, it is important that they fully understand the process for receiving and keeping the benefit.

What should I know about exertional limitations for SSD benefits?

When a person in Oklahoma is suffering from an injury or illness that they believe warrants an approval for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, it is important to note that it is not as simple as applying and automatically getting the benefits. The Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to make certain that people who are applying meet the necessary requirements. There are many factors to consider. For those who are limited in how much they can exert themselves because of their impairment, it is imperative to understand how the SSA gauges exertional and non-exertional limitations.

How is chronic liver disease assessed for disability benefits?

Oklahomans who are suffering from chronic illnesses can have their entire lives affected by trying to mitigate the symptoms and get relief. Since these issues can prevent them from being able to hold a job, Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be critical to making ends meet and getting medical care as they try to survive and improve their condition. Chronic liver disease can be debilitating and warrant SSD benefits. Understanding how the Social Security Administration (SSA) evaluates it and what symptoms are present when it manifests is key.
