Accidents can happen to anyone irrespective of age, gender, profession, or income level. Such an unfortunate incident or accident can be dangerous for someone dependent on their work-life for survival in terms of monetary benefits.
Fortunately, if you live in the USA, the Government of the USA runs a program under the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). This program allows workers to pay social security taxes on their earnings and become eligible for compensation or disability benefits if they are severely injured. The program covers people who suffer from a loss of income due to an injury or workplace accident.
Medical Side of Social Security Disability Claims
As with any insurance company or a government organization, there is always an abundance of pending claims and not enough workers to handle them. It is the system, and to successfully navigate it, you need to get things done by an expert to get your application error-free.
A major part of the process in the SSDI disability claims process is verifying the authenticity of the claims that come in. The SSDI takes the claim verification seriously, and any fraud discovered is strictly prosecuted. There are many factors to qualify for disability coverage. Your work term, experience, nature of the injury, income level, and several other factors matter here. Now, while most of it is easy to prove using your financial and employment records, the nature of the injury part is where it gets tricky.
The US government department that processes these claims requires your complete health records, certified by an authorized practicing medical practitioner with details on the injury that impaired your ability to work. If it is a family member applying for disability benefits due to the death of the worker, the cause of death needs to be related to the injury in question. These documents play the most significant role in your SSDI claims application.
