When one suffers an injury or is diagnosed with an illness, many things run through a person's mind. While the initial focus is likely on recovery and getting better, so he or she can return to their normal life, income and the ability to work are also a likely concern. When an injury or illness causes the inability to work for individuals in our state and elsewhere, a person is likely to search for options to address this financial concern. This is where Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits could come into play.
According to recent reports, the state of Mississippi outranks its neighboring states when it comes to denying disability claims. The state has the lowest rate in the area when it comes to allowances for initial applications and filings for reconsideration. This conclusion is based on data collected by the regional Social Security Administration (SSA) office located in Atlanta.
