Denied Social Security Disability Benefits
If you have been denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and you believe the decision was made in error, you need to act quickly in procuring the services of a dedicated attorney from our firm. When you are dealing with a government agency the procedures and paperwork can be confusing and overwhelming. Take the time to safeguard your interests by obtaining the proven and knowledgeable services from Disability Action Advocates.
Approximately 60% of all SSD applications will be denied by the Social Security Administration on the initial application.
According to the Social Security Administration (SSA),
When we make a decision on your claim, we will send you a letter explaining our decision. If you do not agree with our decision, you can appeal—that is, ask us to look at your case again. When you ask for an appeal, we will look at the entire decision, even those parts that were in your favor. If our decision was wrong, we will change it.
If you are one of the 60% who have been denied SSD you will need to act in a timely manner as you only have 60 days in which to file an appeal. This second stage is called the Reconsideration stage. In the Reconsideration stage over 85% of all applications will be rejected.
It is important to not be discouraged but rather to persevere into the third stage of appeal where you can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). This third stage is where you will stand your best chance of success in your application process. It is important to be thoroughly prepared for this hearing. Having an experienced and skilled legal professional from our organization to assist you in your preparations and to advise you on the proper procedure can make a significant difference in the outcome of your hearing.
