Will I automatically get disability on the third try?
For some reason, many individuals filing for disability are under the assumption that their disability claim will be approved after a certain number of times of filing. This is absolutely not correct; your disability claim will be approved based upon the facts of your disability claim. There is a chance you could be approved for disability benefits the first time you file a claim for disability.
Here are some examples of disability claims that will most certainly guarantee a medical approval the first time you apply for disability benefits.
1. Disability claims that involve terminal conditions are an automatic approval for disability Generally; these claims are processed in 30 days or less provided that the necessary evidence is available in that time frame.
2. Disability claims that involve conditions that are on the compassionate allowance (CAL) list are also an automatic approval for disability benefits.
3. Disability claims that involve a condition that meets or equals an impairment listing.
4. Disability claims that involve a condition or conditions that prevent any of your past work or any other kind of work may result in an approval through a medical vocation allowance.
All of the above mentioned scenarios would result in an approval for disability benefits with the first time you try. If you do not have a disability claim that fits the above you may have to use the appeal process.
By using the appeal process, you can protect your filing date and back payment of benefits. You may be thinking about the appeal process when you say three tries and you are approved. If that is the case, the third level of the disability process is the disability hearing and it does have the highest approval rate. However, it does not guarantee that you will be approved either.
