Don’t Make These Mistakes After Being Denied Social Security Disability Benefits

July 15, 2015

Social Security Disability is there for you when you have a mental or physical disability that prevents you from working. Sometimes, getting the ball rolling with SSD benefits can be difficult. The experienced Philadelphia Social Security Disability attorneys at Larry Pitt & Associates can help you get the money you need.

If you have filed a claim and received a denial notification from the Social Security Administration, that does not mean that you are not eligible. Here are some common mistakes that people make after being denied SSD benefits:

  • They do not appeal the denial. Appealing the denial changes the way your application is processed. If your appeal is denied, you then have the right to request a disability hearing. With an experienced attorney, you have a much better chance of winning your claim.
  • They file a claim all over again. Sometimes this is simply because of confusion based on a response from the SSA. This does not change anything; the best way to push your case through is to appeal, and eventually hold a hearing to prove your case.
  • They miss the deadline to file an appeal. This can happen for a variety of reasons, but an appeal should be filed as soon as possible so that you can start receiving your benefits as quickly as possible. Our offices can file the appeal for you, and handle the necessary paperwork as fast as possible.

Social Security Disability requires documentation, paperwork, and familiarity with the ins and outs of Social Security Administration. When you are unable to work and your life is at stake, having a skilled Social Security Disability Attorney can save your life.
