Figuring out SS benefits after TBI

January 29, 2017


I was injured in a car accident two years ago and sustained a serious traumatic brain injury. Now, I’m not able to work and my doctors tell me I’m permanently disabled. I applied for Supplemental Security Income through Social Security and was just denied. What am I supposed to do now?


Unfortunately, your situation is not unusual. But here are some suggestions and ideas that may help.

Don’t take “no” for an answer
People who have sustained a brain injury often face a great deal of frustration when applying for Social Security benefits, but they should never give up if their first claim is denied. Never take the denial by the Social Security administration as the final answer. In many instances, the applicant is granted benefits after reconsideration or after an appeal, so it is important to pursue your rights in a timely fashion.
