The financial ramifications of a denied disability claim can be overwhelming. Without a way to generate an income, disability applicants who do not plan properly may face a serious financial crisis before the appeal process can be completed. If you plan on applying for Social Security Disability benefits, it is important that you plan ahead to prevent undue financial stress should you need to wait months or years while pursuing your claim through the SSA's Social Security Disability appeal process. Be sure to also check out the Disability Resources page.
The Social Security and Disability Resource Center website (SSDRC.com) provides a detailed overview of how the federal disability system works (social security disability and SSI) and also provides answers to many questions that applicants typically have, but often have trouble finding answers to. For the most part, the site is based on the author's personal experience as a former disability-medicaid caseworker, and also as a former disability examiner for the social security administration.
Written by the National MS Society for people living with MS, this guidebook was developed to assist people in deciding whether applying for disability benefits is right for them and, if so, to help them navigate the complex application process. While some aspects of the application and application process will, of course, be different for those with PD, but much of the information in this guidebook is relevant and helpful regardless of diagnosis.
