The increasing number of pending applications for Social Security Disability Insurance has left potential applicants wondering if they are qualified for the disability benefits in the first place.
Last month in the United States, over 230,000 individuals filled out applications to earn disability benefits. By the end of the SSA fiscal year, which comes to a close on September 30, 2012, there are expected to be more than 860,000 pending disability applications in the system.
This number is predicted to rise even more by the end of the 2013 fiscal year, with 1.1 million disability claims estimated to be pending. This large number means that people who believe they qualify for these benefits need to make sure they have all the necessary paperwork and medical documents in place.
The application process for disability benefits can be confusing. If you have questions about this process, please contact the initial filing process lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C. by calling 215-238-1130 today.

A branch of the Social Security Administration in Louisville may be consolidated with a nearby office in the downtown area.
Originally, officials with the case stated that the office would close in May 2013, but it was recently discussed in a telephone interview that the closure will be put on hold.
Nearly a dozen offices across the nation have been closed or consolidated within the past year mainly due to constraints with the budget. It has been said that 15 union workers would not be losing their jobs and they would be transferred to the downtown office as a part of the consolidation.
Many think that the closure of the office will be a disservice to the those in the community because it will make the process of discussing benefits much more inconvenient.
