The Appeals Process – Appealing a Denial of Social Security Disability Benefits | St. Petersburg Social Security Disability Lawyer

Over 1,675,000 initial claims for Social Security disability benefits are denied each year!

What should you do? Appeal the denial immediately by filing a Request For Reconsideration! What’s going to happen next? You’re going to get denied again! And what are you going to do after the second denial?  Appeal again and asked for a hearing!

If you don’t appeal, the initial denial or the denial at the Request for Reconsideration stage you lose!

Why appeal when you keep on getting denied? Because eventually you will get your case in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) at a local disability hearing office where you get to present your case to a real live judge.

If you don’t stay in the race, you don’t even have a chance to win. This is a marathon and victory usually comes to those who outlast the appeals process.

Individuals who are represented at a hearing have a better chance of being awarded benefits. There’s a significant difference in the number of applicants who are awarded benefits after hearing who are represented then those applicants who choose not to have representation.

Never, never give up! If you want to obtain the Social Security disability benefits you’re entitled to and you are denied, appeal and hire a Social Security Disability attorney like Nancy cavey or Sharon Barret.
