Life can be challenging, especially if you suffer from a disability that impairs your ability to work. Unfortunately, the high housing expenses and utility bills that a Michigan resident incurs don't exempt people on the basis of their ability to work, often making it very difficult for disabled individuals to make ends meet. Federal programs such as Social Security Disability Insurance were established to help address these situations.
Like most legal claims, disability claims require approval. Individuals pursuing Social Security Disability claims need to undergo the painstaking task of providing proof that their health and employment prospects are being compromised due to their disabilities. This can be quite a tedious task. The general rule of thumb here is that the applicant needs to establish that their disabilities hinder them from attaining regular work, and that their annual income is lower than the minimum wage.
If at first you were denied a Social Security Disability claim, it may be wise to see if you have other options.
