Social Security Bismarck ND

Applying for disability benefits can be a long, complicated process. At National Disability Benefits, we make the process easier for you by handling the application and giving you a higher chance of qualifying for Social Security in Bismarck, ND. 

Filing for Social Security in Bismarck, ND

When you live in North Dakota, your benefits application goes to a Disability Determination Services office in Bismarck. Here, a claims examiner will go through your application and decide whether or not you qualify for benefits. If the app gets a denial, you will need to file an appeal. From there, the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR), formerly known as the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHAR), will handle the case.

In North Dakota, the chance of the DDS approving your first claim is 43.2%, higher than the national average, which is 31.9%. When it comes to approving disability claims, North Dakota mainly looks at whether you have met all the listing requirements and not on vocational factors. The DDs looks at your medical records, evidence of your medical or psychological condition, a review of the disability, and your own statement to decide on your eligibility.   

What is the work requirements needed to receive benefits in Bismarck?

To qualify for benefits in Bismarck, you must fulfill the current SSA criteria, and you must have been underemployment for an extended period, stopping recently. Your yearly self-employment income or wages dictate how many Social Security credits you get. Depending on how much you earn, you can get up to four credits every year. The amount you need to earn these credits changes every year.

In 2019, for every $1,360 you earn you get one credit and if you earn $5,440, you’ve already received the four credits for the year.  The amount of credits you need to qualify for Social Security benefits depends on your age at the time of the disability. Typically, you will need 40 credits to be eligible for disability, 20 of which you have to have earned within the last ten years up to the year the disability began. Younger workers can, however, qualify with fewer credits.     

How long do benefits take to process?

How long it takes for you to receive benefits depends on various factors. One of these factors is the number of times you will have to go through the process to get approval, i.e., the initial application, denial and reconsideration, and the hearing. Every level of this process takes time, and you do not have a guarantee that after the long wait, your application will go through. With our services, however, chances that your application will go through on the first claim, or reconsidered on the first denial, are higher. 

Are you looking to have a better chance of applying for Social Security in Bismarck, ND?
