My Social Security Disability Claim Was Denied, Now What?
How to file a Social Security Disability appeal and what to expect
People are denied Social Security Disability in Michigan every day. This happens because Social Security does not have the resources to fully develop each and every claim.
But many denials can be reversed on appeal with the help of an experienced attorney. Call (855) 221-2667 for help from one of our Social Security Disability lawyers today. We’ve been helping people receive their benefits for more than 35 years, and we can help you too.
What to do if your Social Security Disability Claim is denied
If your claim has been denied, try not to take it personally. You must file an appeal to have the denial reconsidered. Far too many people suffer in silence when they get denied. Failure to file an appeal could result in the loss of substantial disability benefits.
Your appeal will be heard by a judge who will make an independent decision on your claim. You will have the opportunity to present evidence and testify about your condition and how it affects your ability to work.
We recommend that you hire an attorney for your appeal because a strong advocate is needed to build your case and focus the legal issues for the judge. Do not attempt to proceed without an experienced Social Security Disability lawyer. If you lose your appeal, you could be forever barred from receiving disability benefits for that period of time.
If your insured status has expired, you may also be forever barred from receiving any disability benefits for life.
