SSDI Help: Don’t Worry if You’ve Been Denied
Being denied SSDI benefits doesn’t mean it’s over. In fact, it’s not even unusual: More than 60% of SSDI claims are denied the first time they’re filed. Don’t let this discourage you from pursuing your claim – you can file an appeal within 60 days. But since this is such a critical stage in the process, the best thing to do is get professional help from a Social Security disability lawyer.
The benefits of hiring a Social Security disability lawyer far outweigh the do-it-yourself route. SSDI appeals must be handled very carefully: the right evidence must be gathered and strict deadlines must be met. Social Security disability lawyers are the professionals who know what the Social Security Administration is looking for, what evidence to collect, and how to expedite the process. This kind of help and expertise can greatly increase your chances of securing benefits.
Our lawyers are experienced helping people at every stage of the SSDI process whether you need help filing your claim, need someone to handle your appeal or need legal representation at a hearing. They work on a contingency basis, so you don’t have to worry about payment because either you get paid, or you don’t pay at all!
Remember: You only have 60 days after receiving notice of a denial to file an appeal! Call now for your free consultation: 1-800-THE-LAW2.
How SSDI Benefits Are Evaluated
Becoming disabled is not something to be ashamed about, and it’s more common than you might realize. The Social Security Administration reports “a 20-year-old worker has a 3-in-10 chance of becoming disabled before reaching retirement age.” SSDI provides a safety net for disabled workers who have worked long enough and recently enough to qualify.
Claiming SSDI benefits can be complicated, though. That’s why a Social Security disability lawyer is so vital – a lawyer knows what information to present, how to present it, and how to apply the law so that it works in your favor.
Once your claim is filed, SSA evaluates your disability against five major criteria: 1) If you’re recently working; 2) The severity of your condition; 3) If your condition is on their list of “disabling conditions”; 4) Whether you can do the work you did in the past; and 5) If you can do any type of work at all.
Our Social Security disability lawyers have helped people with a variety of impairments, including:
- Mental disorders, such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia
- Immune system disorders, such as HIV, systemic vacuities and sclerosis
- Hematological disorders, such as chronic anemia and sickle cell disease
- Musculoskeletal disabilities, such as chronic joint pain and stiffness
- Digestive disorders, such as hepatitis C and hepatitis B
There are many other types of disabilities that qualify for SSDI. Call now to find an attorney who will do what it takes to secure your benefits: 1-800-THE-LAW2.
