If you have been denied Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and are seeking help for appealing the decision, you’ve come to the right place. DisabilityUnited is here to help you get the benefits you deserve. Our services are absolutely free and you are under no obligation at any time.
If you have been denied a disability claim, here’s what you should do:
- Understand your denial notice. The Social Security Administration will give you the reason your claim has been denied. It could be because under your medical conditions, there are jobs that you could be engaged in or they may give you a technical rationale explaining why your social security disability claim was denied.
- Appeal immediately within the 60-day deadline set for requesting an appeal. The mistake that many people make is to re-apply with a fresh application for the claim. Studies have shown that there is a much better chance for approval if you go through the disability appeals process than filling out another initial claim.
If you have already applied for SSD benefits, were denied, and you did not appeal, you can still re-apply or appeal the denial with the help of a qualified Social Security disability advocate. “Reconsideration” is the first step of the appeals process. To start, you will need to fill out two forms:
- Reconsideration Report
- Request for Reconsideration
It is important to submit a Request for Reconsideration within the 60 day stipulated time period because after that date, you will need to start right from scratch by making an initial claim. An advocate knows all this and this is why it is best to have assistance like that which DisabilityUnited offers to help you get through this process.
