Social Security Disability (SSD) is a kind of benefit that helps those who have become disabled at work or as a result of other causes. This form of benefit requires you to qualify for it before it can be paid out to you.
This is the hard part about seeking Social Security Disability. Even with all the medical documents you have, a thorough application and other information, the application you fill out could still be denied.
If you filed for SSD and were denied the benefits you think you deserve, it can be heartbreaking and frustrating. Fortunately, there are things you can do to correct this error.
What can you do if your claim is denied?
If your claim is denied, one of the best things to do is to speak with your attorney about appealing that denial. Your attorney is familiar with working with those who have had their claims denied, so they are able to look into the reason for the denial and give you advice on how to appeal the decision.
Sometimes, denials are made because an application isn’t filled out correctly. Other times, the Social Security Administration (SSA) wants to get more information about your injuries or illness. Whatever the issue is, your attorney will be able to talk to you about making an appeal that has the correct evidence of your disability for the SSA.
