You Have Options When Your SSD Claim Is Denied

Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) is a difficult process. A denial can be disheartening, especially when you put a great deal of time and effort into your application. Fortunately, a denial at the initial application stage is not the end of the road.

What Can I Do Next?

If your initial application gets denied (as more than 50 percent do, according to the Social Security Administration), you can initiate the appeals process.

Your next – and most important – opportunity to receive benefits is during an SSD hearing before an administrative law judge. According to the Social Security Administration, more than half of those who present their cases before an administrative law judge are awarded benefits – perhaps because many wisely choose to hire an attorney at this stage.

However, even if you are not successful, you may still continue to appeal your case to the Social Security Administration’s Appeals Council.

We Can Help Turn Your Case Around

Don’t be discouraged if your SSD claim was denied. You still have multiple opportunities to pursue a favorable decision. However, if you have not yet involved an experienced SSD attorney, you should do so as soon as possible. Short deadlines may apply, and you do not want to miss out on months or years of benefits simply because you missed the deadline.

For a free consultation to discuss your options for overcoming a denial, contact the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC in Westbury, New York.
