Let’s play through to the worst-case scenario when you file a Social Security disability application that is denied the first time. The worst that happens after your first denial is that you appeal. That doesn’t sound so bad, but when you consider that you waited months to find out about the denial and that you may wait many more months to find out about an appeal then things may become more difficult. Then you may be left wondering how to pay your Omaha mortgage or rent and how to put food on the table for your family.

Is This Really a Big Deal?

Yes. Approximately two out of every three initial Social Security disability applications are denied. Just one mistake can lead to a denial. One mistake can lead to months of financial hardship and stress during what is already a difficult time for you and your family—and often these mistakes are avoidable.

What You Can Do About It

You can avoid the consequences of a denied application by making sure you qualify for Social Security disability before you begin to fill out the application, and by completing the application accurately and completely. The important question, of course, is how you do that.
