You’ve worked for the same company for many years. You’ve poured your heart and soul into your work, and you’ve done an excellent job. In fact, you’ve lost count of how many times your boss has praised you over a job well done. For decades, you have gone above and beyond because of your loyalty to the company, and because you wanted to maintain your excellent reputation.
However, recently the unthinkable happened. You were injured, and the injury was so severe, you were forced to go on temporary disability. Although your doctors were optimistic that your injury wouldn’t cause any permanent damage, it soon became clear that you were going to have to start thinking about applying for social security disability. The day your doctor made the suggestion was a difficult one for you, but you filled out the application because you wanted to do what was best for you and for your family.
Unfortunately, like many social security applications, you waited for months for a response, only to be denied.
If that scenario sounds familiar to you, please take heart in the fact that you’re not alone. Each year, thousands of people apply for social security disability in South Carolina because of their inability to continue working. They apply at the request of their doctors, sometimes even when they are reluctant at first. Many of those people are turned down. They quickly become frustrated and worried about their future for good reason. In the wake of a debilitating accident there are a lot of new factors to consider and that is stressful. Coupled with the fact that the prospects of future employment may seem dim, and it is inevitable that one would fret about their situation. But a claim denial is not always the end of the story, or the end of your options.
