After Your Application Is Denied: Social Security Disability Appeals

You spent years diligently paying into Social Security. Now, when a serious injury or illness means you need to use those funds, the Social Security Administration has denied your application.

You're not just a name on a spreadsheet; you're a person facing a difficult time, and we want to help.

Most SSD Applications Are Denied. A Denial Is Not "Case Closed."

Most Social Security Disability applications are denied. The Social Security Administration has a strict set of requirements that applicants must meet in order to get approved for SSD benefits. Unfortunately, even when it is physically obvious that a person meets those requirements, many applications do not provide enough evidence and information to prove it. Less obvious disabilities, such as mental disorders, can require substantial evidence.

We'll ensure that your appeal contains adequate information about your medical condition, inability to work and other factors that can help your case. We have experience helping clients get benefits at all levels of appeals, including:

  • Reconsideration
  • Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearings
  • SSA Appeals Council review
  • Federal court appeal
