It is easy to think of the Social Security Administration (SSA) as your enemy. It is the SSA that is responsible for making a determination about your disability claim and paying you the benefits to which you are legally entitled. The agency may seem slow in making the determination or, worse, deny your application. You may have to file an appeal all while you are struggling to pay your basic living expenses at home in Sarpy County.
Even Then, the SSA Is Not Your Enemy
Believe it or not, the agency is not out to get you, nor does it want to work against you. It is the agency’s mission to provide benefits to those who qualify. However, like other government agencies, the SSA:
- May not have the staff or resources to respond to your questions in a timely manner. There can be a significant wait if you contact the SSA for assistance.
- Has exact rules to follow. If your application is incomplete then the SSA must deny it, for example.
As an individual, there isn’t much you can do to change these problems on a large scale, but there is something that you can do to minimize the impact of these problems on your own life.
