It can be very disappointing and frustrating to put all of your effort into applying for Social Security disability benefits, only to have your application denied. In fact, the majority of individuals in Pennsylvania, and nationwide, who apply for SSD benefits may find that their initial applications are not approved. However, do not lose hope. There is an appeals process that individuals seeking benefits can pursue in such situations.
Many Pennsylvania residents rely on Social Security disability benefits, but will they always need to? While the Social Security Administration has a process to review a recipient's case periodically to ensure they still qualify for benefits, some legislators feel this is not enough.
