An important thing to keep in mind when applying for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits is how complex the rules of the SSDI program are. There are numerous strict eligibility requirements regarding who can be granted benefits. Given this complexity, the issue of whether or not a person qualifies for benefits is often not a simple one, but one that is dependent on many different factors.

Thus, the specific details of a person’s SSDI application, even the little ones, can be very impactful. Given this, there are many potential pitfalls a person could fall into when it comes to their SSDI application. Little oversights during the process of application preparation can result in mistakes being made regarding the application. Application mistakes, even small ones, can have significant negative implications for an SSDI applicant. They could lead to a delay in a decision being made on a claim or could potentially result in a person receiving a denial on a claim that otherwise would have been approved.
