Social Security Disability benefits are a lifeline for many Pennsylvania families. Disabled adults and children count on this income to help meet all the financial obligations they have while they are unable to work. For many people SSD benefits are one of the sole ways that they support themselves. Without this income, some people literally cannot afford basic necessities including housing or food.
However, SSD benefits can be difficult to obtain. People often need to provide specific documentation with their application in order to get approval for benefits from the Social Security Administration. Often, these initial applications can be denied by the SSA for a variety of reasons.
