Social Security disability benefits are available to those that have a disabling condition that prevents them from working. The process begins as the claimant applies for benefits by filling out an application at their local Social Security Office or by applying online. Unfortunately, many if not most first time applicants are denied benefits. If your claim has been denied, you will be notified by a letter that will explain the reason for the denial and the letter will explain the process and time limit for filing an appeal.
My law firm handles disability claims that are at this appeal stage. Many claims are initially denied simply because the claimant did not provide enough documentation of their disabling medical conditions. Other times, claims may be denied because the claimant did not convince the review panel that their medical conditions impose a significant limitation on the claimant’s ability to work.
The benefits appeal process is a technical and overwhelming task for many. Let my law firm carry the burden to assist you through the process. Call today for a consultation.
