Every year in Salt Lake City, more than 15,000 residents apply for Social Security disability (known as SSD) benefits because of disabilities or diseases.
According to the Social Security Administration, less than 37 percent of these applicants are approved for disability benefits the first time they apply.
That means more than 60 percent of applicants are denied, and chances of success are even lower for those who apply on their own.
In fact, more than <strong<70 percent<=”” strong=””>of Salt Lake City residents who apply on their own are denied SSD benefits. The reasons for being denied SSD benefits vary, but the fact remains that it’s difficult to succeed while going it alone.</strong<70>
