Was Your Initial Claim For SSD Benefits Denied?
Too many people do not stop to ask themselves, “Do I need an attorney to secure disability benefits?” before applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. Many people believe they can craft a successful application for SSD benefits without any assistance. This is often not the case.
Approximately two out of three initial applications are rejected by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
Why Is The Rate Of Rejection So High For Initial Applications?
The SSA has very specific requirements for the medical evidence that they need to support a claim for SSD benefits. It is not just that you need to show evidence that lines up with how they view different disabilities, it is that the medical records and other evidence should be presented in such a way that it makes sense to the staff who are reviewing your initial application.
Our experienced attorneys understand what the SSA is looking for and how to present evidence in a format and manner that they will recognize.
A Denial Is Not The End Of The Road
With so many initial applications being denied, it is easy to see how people can lose hope. But, a denied application is just the first step. There are a number of other steps we can take after your initial application has been denied.
