Understanding the Disability Application Process

Applying for disability benefits in Harrisonville, Missouri, includes a few important steps:

  • Starting Your Application: You can begin your application on the SSA website or at your local SSA office. Make sure to gather all the necessary documents, like medical and work records.
  • Application Review: The SSA will take a look at your application. This could take several months, and they might ask for more details during this time.
  • Decision Time: After they make a decision, there might be a waiting period before you start getting benefits, if your application is approved.

Unfortunately, waiting for a decision can sometimes take a while. Some people might wait six months or longer.

What to Do if The SSA Might Stop Your Benefits

If there’s a chance the SSA might stop your benefits, it’s important to know why. Reasons might include your health getting better, earning more money, or not following the doctor’s advice. Here’s what you can do:

  • Check the Notice: Make sure you understand why they might stop your benefits.
  • Act Fast: You have 60 days to respond to their decision.
  • Ask to Keep Benefits: If you respond within 10 days, you might keep getting benefits while you appeal.
  • Keep Records Updated: Make sure your medical records are up to date.
  • Get Legal Help: A lawyer who knows about disability claims can help.
  • Get Ready for a Hearing: If you need a hearing, be prepared to explain why you still need your benefits.

If Your Disability is Denied, Here’s What to Do Next

It’s not unusual to get denied at first. Our lawyers at Grundy Disability Group can figure out why and help you with an appeal. This might take some time, but it’s often successful.

The appeal process involves:

  • Asking for Another Look: You have 60 days after a denial to ask for a new review.
  • Hearing with a Judge: If they still say no, you can have a hearing with a judge.
  • More Appeals: If needed, you can take your case to the Appeals Council or even a federal court.

Client Testimonials

What Clients are Saying

Find out how the clients who trusted us feel about our firm.

I cannot say enough
good about Matthew Grundy and
ALL of his staff.

I contacted his office October 2020, because I had and still am, fighting breast cancer. I had numerous surgeries, still doing chemo, finished radiation and still fighting the fight. They took care of everything and that was such a blessing because I was too sick and weak to do it myself. I would absolutely recommend them and I am so grateful that a friend referred them to me. They were always polite and punctual returning my calls and emails. Don’t go it alone, let them take care of it, reserve your strength to fight for your health.”

Dear Matt

I want to take a moment to say I appreciate all you do for clients (me) throughout the SSD process. You provided me top-shelf representation, case knowledge and follow up. Thank you!”

— A.S. Leawood, KS

A friend referred
me to Matt Grundy.
He was amazing!

I felt the weight lift off my shoulders. He was caring and efficient and took over the whole process. He handled all correspondence and was my voice in my hearing. I was ecstatic when Matt got my disability approved. I wish I had started with Matt before I ever filed.”

— W.T. Kansas City

After being denied trying to file on my own
I was fortunate to have Grundy Disability Group
recommended to me.

A short survey and a visit then they took control of my case. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Matt answered all my questions without hesitation and gave me confidence about my case. I’ve already recommended them to others and will do so gladly. Thank you Matt and his team!”

— W.S. Kansas City

I had a great experience
working with this office.

They are thorough, and get the job done with the least amount of stress on the client as possible. I would recommend them to anyone I know who needs help navigating their SSDI claim. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

— W.W. Kansas City

I’m epileptic and you recently
just helped me get disability.

I just wanted to email you guys and say thank you guys so much! I appreciate your hard work and dedication.! you guys have helped me get my income back since I haven’t been able to work. Now I can pay my bills again and get caught up again that is a relief. thank you guys again so much god bless you and all your families.”

— A.D. Kansas City

Thanks again for
your help on all this.

From the first conversation I had with Susan Frank, whose advice set me on a course to lay the groundwork of a successful claim – months before I hired you. I spoke to a couple of other places before I spoke to her and there was no comparison. The difference between my initial contact with Susan VS the others was a personal connection and actual value in the phone call. It was informative, connected and extremely helpful. This built trust and made my decision to choose your organization easy. My ongoing dealings with you only confirmed my choice. Matt is extremely connected with his clients and communicates promptly and thoughtfully.”
