THE CHANCES OF GETTING APPROVED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY IN WV
The DDS approves only 25% of applicants for disability benefits at the first stage of application. The national approval rate is 32%, which means that you are less likely to be approved for Social Security Disability in West Virginia than you are in most other states. Another eight percent of applicants are approved at the reconsideration stage, instead of 11% nationally. However, the approval rating after the hearing stage for West Virginia is the same as the national rate, which is 58%. If you are interested in finding out more about your chances of being approved for Social Security Disability, or if you believe you have been wrongfully denied, Todd Houck and his legal staff are here to help!

ENSURING YOUR RIGHTS WHEN APPLYING FOR SSD IN WEST VIRGINIA
Previously, when applying for SSD, a medical professional would have to review your medical history and other records before the Disability Determination Section could finalize their decision. However, with the single decision-maker process, a medical professional is no longer required as long as the claim is not for a child or someone with a mental disability. With only one office making the decision to approve benefits or not, having a trusted and experienced attorney on your side can make all the difference. Ensuring your rights is our top priority in any SSD case.
