13 Jan What To Do After A SSDI Denial
Receiving a denial notice when filing a Social Security Disability claim is never what you want to see. When this happens to any claimant, the key is to stay persistent and never give up. There are a few things that are extremely helpful to do after receiving a denial notice. Let’s dive into these choices you have.
One of the most effective tips to use is appealing your previously denied claim. The chance of approval increases during the disability appeals process. Claims will be reviewed and re-evaluated with the addition of new or more thorough evidence. Applicants who wish to appeal the decision must do so quickly. The SSA requires a request for appeal be submitted within 60 days of the denial. Applicants may file an appeal on their own.
Another tool would be to acquire the proper representation in the form of an SSDI attorney. With the proper representation, it may speed up the process and will help simplify all the work required. Filing a claim on your own and having no professional legal help can be very intimidating and difficult for you to handle. With specific dates and timing that are present within the claims process, having a professional lead you through the process helps to nearly guarantee a smooth transition throughout each stage of your claim.
With that in mind, Victory Disability lawyers can help you in your claim effectively. The only way you pay is if you win your claim! Since most of the time you will not win on your first claim and will need to appeal the denied claim, you might as well already have an attorney from the beginning since you will need one afterwards if you do not win initially. If you are to not appeal a denied claim in the allotted time of 60 days, you must start from the beginning and file a brand new claim. Restarting will only take your disability claim a longer time to be processed and reviewed, so we strongly suggest sticking with the initial claim and appealing it if you are to receive a denial notice.
Another reason it is so beneficial to have an attorney on your side is for documentation records and paperwork that is required. Our attorneys have years of experience with tracking down and helping find the correct medical paperwork and obtaining the perfect evidence you will need to win your case and receive those benefits you deserve. Somethings you will not be able to acquire on your own and these things are easily traceable by attorneys so, why not hire one?
