We Help with Denied Social Security Disability Benefits
My disability claim has been denied. What do I do now?
According to statistics provided by the Social Security Administration, an average of 53% of applications for Social Security disability was denied between 2000 and 2009. Being denied disability is a common occurrence; however, just because you were denied the first time does not mean that you can never receive benefits. Many denied claims can actually be reversed by appealing the claims. The first step that an applicant should take after his or her claim is denied is to discuss the situation with a Virginia Social Security disability lawyer. An experienced attorney will be able to help you understand why your claim was denied so that you have the best chance of succeeding in your appeal.
Many claims are denied because of a simple mistake made on the application form. It is important to understand the following during the initial claim and appeal process.
- Whether you apply online, in person, or over the phone, you must be sure to provide all of the correct information and to complete every section of the application in order for your claim to be accepted.
- You must also be thorough in providing evidence of your disability and of your eligibility.
- Disability can also be denied because of a mistake made by the person processing your application. If you believe that your claim has been wrongfully denied, make sure you have a lawyer by your side to help you successfully reverse the denial.
