If you have recently been denied Social Security Disability benefits, you are not alone. In fact, as many as 80% of those who initially apply for Social Security Disability are initially denied by the federal government, and are left needing to appeal the decision.
If you are denied, first you should take another look at why you are applying for benefits. To receive Social Security Disability benefits from the US government, you must have a physical problem, a mental health problem, or some combination of both that prevents you from working on a regular basis.
If you fit these criteria, you should be eligible to receive your disability benefits under the law. That does not mean, however, that the process will be easy. From the time you receive your social security disability denial letter, you have 60 days to file an appeal of the decision, otherwise you have to start by applying again right away.
Once you receive your denial letter, we highly recommend you contact a Social Security Disability attorney for a free, no obligation consultation of your case. The disability attorneys at Rutter Mills offer these consultations, and will gladly sit down with you and discuss the prospects of your case. After this consultation, many of your questions should be answered and you can begin the appeals process.
Our Social Security Disability attorneys are available at any time for a free consultation by calling 1-800-515-3000 or by filling out the contact form on this page.
