Why is your work history relevant to SSD?

When you are injured in an accident that is going to take time to recover from, there are lots of areas in your life that could be affected by the injury itself and the time it will take you to heal. At your home in Mississippi, you may need to modify aspects to make daily tasks easier. At work, you may need to request that modifications be made to your job responsibilities so you can safely and comfortably complete them. In some cases, your injury may require you to stop working altogether for a temporary period of time. 

Understanding the value of a disability planner to you

When you recognize the need to apply for social security disability benefits in Mississippi, there are many valuable resources available to you. Utilizing these resources can help you to be more effective and efficient in your efforts to qualify for and begin receiving benefits. At Davis-Morris Law Firm, we have been able to provide guidance to many people who are working through the process of applying for social security disability. 

How much does a social security lawyer cost?

If you have ever wondered how people on social security disability benefits manage to pay for attorneys to represent them, you are not alone. After all, one of the reasons many people have SSD in Mississippi is to manage unexpected increases in bills or inordinate costs of their disabilities.

Submitting another SSD application

When people are turned down for Social Security Disability benefits, they may be devastated. Sometimes, a rejected application can leave applicants feeling as if they wasted their time and many have a great deal of uncertainty with respect to their financial future. However, it is important to note that people can apply for SSD benefits again if they have been turned down in the past. For those who decided not to file an appeal, or whose physical or mental circumstances have changed considerably, applying for SSD a second or even third time may be the right move.

Are there time limits with regard to the appeals process?

When someone applies for Social Security Disability and they are rejected, the impact can be devastating. Some people may feel hopeless, and they may give up or come to the conclusion that there are no resources available. However, many people who have been denied disability benefits were able to successfully receive SSD after filing an appeal. With that said, it is important to keep in mind that there are time limits in place when it comes to the appeals process and that those whose SSD application was denied should not wait to file an appeal.
