The Surprising Statistics Behind Filing For Social Security
If you’ve suffered an injury or illness that makes it impossible for you to work for a living, the Social Security disability program is available to help you receive financial assistance during your time of need. Unfortunately, the process for receiving these benefits can be long and complicated.
In fact, in Kentucky, the approval rate at the initial application step and the reconsideration step (the first level of appeal) are below the national average, with only 25% of those from Kentucky being approved at the initial application step (meaning 75% of applications from Kentucky are initially denied) and 8% being approved at the reconsideration step. For comparison, the national average at the initial step is 32% approval and 11% approval at the reconsideration step.
