Countless SSDI Claims Are Denied

Countless Social Security Disability Insurance claims are denied every year. 

Being disabled and off work is difficult enough and a denied SSDI claim is frustrating and discouraging.  However, a denial does not mean that you are ineligible for SSDI.

Often, an experienced attorney can help you appeal the denial and get you the maximum benefits including back-pay of benefits you qualify for.

Do I Qualify for SSDI?

To qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, you must have worked a job where Social Security tax was paid.  You must also have a medical issue that meets the SSA’s definition of disability – “The law defines disability as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity (SGA) by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment(s) which can be expected to result in death or which has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.”

If you meet the requirements above and have been unable to work for 12 months or more, you may be eligible to receive social security disability monthly cash payments. 

The Process of Appealing SSDI Denials

  • Request for ReconsiderationA reconsideration is a complete review of your claim by someone who did not take part in the first determination. If your claim has been denied, you need to file a “request for reconsideration” within 60 days of the date ON your denial letter. It is important to act fast.
  • The Hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, then request a hearing will be the next crucial step.  A hearing is conducted by an administrative law judge who had no part in the original determination or the reconsideration of your case.  
  • Appeals Council: If the hearing is denied, we will discuss with you the option of appealing your case to the Social Security Appeals Council.
