CDGDR is an independent contractor supporting the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) mission to Assist Eligible Children and Adults in Securing Social Security Disability Benefits. In 2021, the number of SSDI applications was 1,800,400. The number of claimants receiving SSDI benefit awards was 572,000 or 32%. The number of claimants being denied was 1,228,400 or 68%.
The 3 reasons that 1,228,400 claimants were denied SSDI benefit awards include applications missing data and incomplete medical information, including forms. The third reason is that most claimants filed on line.
On May 16, 2022, the CDC stated that recent estimates in the United States show that about one in six, or about 17%, of children aged 3 through 17 years have a one or more developmental disabilities. Developmental disabilities are a group of conditions because of an impairment in physical, learning, language, or behavior areas. These conditions begin during the developmental period, may affect day-to-day functioning, and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.
CDGDR also works with insurance company claimants who have Long Term Disability Insurance (LTDI) policies. LTDI is an insurance policy (not part of Social Security) that pays you, the policyholder, direct monthly benefits that replace a portion of your income if you become too sick or hurt to work. Social Security requires insurance company claimants who receive LTDI benefits to file for SSDI benefits.
CDGDR’s mission is to assist claimants in collecting, organizing and presenting the medical and other information necessary for being awarded the Social Security benefits for which they are applying. Our case management system has all the current versions of all SSA forms. It monitors and informs CDGDR of critical dates with times associated with the progress of the claimant’s case. We offer our claimants, whose disability claims are awarded, the following complimentary services:
Fees received for filing for disability benefits are set by the Social Security Administration. If you do not qualify for a disability benefit award, there is no charge for our services.
