SSDI benefits and the inability to ambulate effectively

Residents of Chattanooga and throughout Tennessee who have suffered an injury that has resulted in an inability to work need to understand how the Social Security Administration defines and assesses certain issues when the person applies for Social Security disability benefits. It is these federal requirements and the failure to fully grasp how they work that can frequently lead to a denied claim of Social Security disability benefits for injury when providing the proper information could have led to an approval.

Continuing eligibility and reviews for SSD benefits

Tennesseans who are approved for benefits from Social Security disability need to know that in most cases, the benefits are not going to continue forever. There are, of course, some situations where the SSD benefits can be relatively assured of being long-term. Most circumstances are not like that, so it is important to know about continuing eligibility for benefits and the protocol for a review of the disability.

What is sequential evaluation for SSI-related benefits?

Supplemental Security Income benefits are part of the Social Security Disability program for those whose income falls under certain levels and are blind, aged or disabled. Tennesseans who believe that they meet the requirements to receive SSI-related benefits must understand certain aspects of the decision-making process. Included is the sequential evaluation for those who are 18 or older. The Social Security Administration will ask: whether the individual is working; if the impairment is severe; if the impairment meets the Listing of Impairments; if the individual can do work he or she did in the past; and if the person can do any other work.
