Omaha Social Security Disability Resources

When you submit an application for Social Security Disability benefits in Omaha, NE, it’s quite common for there to be several months which pass before a final determination on your eligibility is made. The initial application may take up to six months to go through review, and the majority of claims (57%) are denied at this stage.

A second review can be requested; however, the approval rate is not much higher the second time around. The last stage in the process is to appeal. This will put your application before an administrative law judge. You should anticipate a year or longer before your claim goes through the entire application process, including all reviews and appeals.

The guidelines of the Social Security Administration for disability require an individual to be completely unable to work as a result of long term or permanent disability for a period of one year or longer before they apply for benefits. To complete an application for Omaha disability benefits, you can call the SSA at (800) 772-1213, contact your nearest SSA field office, or use the SSA’s online application forms.

If you need assistance finding your local field office, call the SSA phone line listed above, or utilize the online SSA Office Locator service.

Your Omaha Social Security Disability Claim

The medical documentation in your application for Omaha disability benefits must be extensive in order to be found eligible. Even with exceptional medical detail; however, there is no guarantee you’ll be approved for SSD. An Omaha Social Security lawyer can increase your odds.

As a person with limited finances, you may be worried about how you’ll pay for legal services, but an Omaha Social Security attorney charges no upfront fees for their services. In fact, they are only paid if you are found eligible for SSD.
