Applying for social security disability (SSDI) benefits can be complicated and requires meeting deadlines and submitting the right information at the right time. And applicants who don’t understand the complex rules can answer basic questions in a way that reduces, or even eliminates, their chance to qualify for benefits. According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the average acceptance rate of initial applications is only 22 percent, and about 60 percent of SSDI applications are denied. Perhaps that is why about 90 percent of first-time applicants for social security disability benefits seek help at some point in the process.
