Each year, millions of Americans are left unable to work due to a debilitating mental or physical condition. This often leaves these individuals struggling to make ends meet and dependent on others for a source of income.

Luckily, the federal government’s Social Security Administration (SSA) has a program that offers Social Security Disability Benefits to these needy individuals; however, in order to receive these benefits, a disabled person must first apply.

In the past, this meant the disabled person had to leave their home and visit a local SSA office in order to fill out the required application; however, the agency recently introduced a new program that allows citizens to apply for benefits online. According to an article from Frost Illustrated, the new digital application system is working to speed up the claims process by filtering claims into appropriate expediting programs. For example, an individual suffering from a condition listed as one of the hundreds of the SSA’s Compassionate Allowances eligible diseases can have their claim processed much quicker than the average claim. The Quick Disability Determination program is also working to cut wait times for claimants by streamlining the application and approval process.

The Social Security Disability Attorneys with Newlin Disability recognize the complexities of the Social Security Disability application process. The firm urges anyone considering applying for benefits to first discuss their legal options with a qualified attorney to help ensure they get the compensation they deserve.
