Securing disability benefits can be difficult, but you're not alone
It's no secret that trying to secure Social Security disability benefits on your own can prove to be an arduous, confusing and ultimately disappointing endeavor.
While some of this can certainly be attributed to the need to complete and submit the all-important and all-perplexing application for disability benefits, at least some of it can also be attributed to the need to navigate the various bureaucratic channels of the Social Security Administration.
Indeed, interactions with SSA officials can often leave people with little information or sometimes the wrong information. Even worse, thanks to staff and budget cuts, an otherwise disabled person might encounter trouble even locating an official with which to speak.
Indeed, the issue has gotten so bad, that some experts have now offered tips for how to ensure people are able to speak with an SSA official:
- Don't call on the first week of the month, or Mondays and Tuesdays, in general, as these are high-traffic periods.
- Make an appointment to meet face-to-face with an SSA official to discuss your issues.
- Be willing to "office shop," meaning that if the service at one SSA field office is not satisfactory, consider going to another office in a nearby area.
As helpful as these tips may be, they are still of little help to those suffering from serious injuries or illnesses given that their condition might leave them with limited mobility or energy.
