When the residents of Windsor suffer a debilitating injury or illness that prevents them from working, they could be entitled to benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. These benefits replace a person’s wages, and help pay for essentials like food, clothing, and shelter.

Unfortunately, recovering these benefits is not always guaranteed. In fact, initial claims are denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA)more often than they are approved. The Windsor Social Security Disability lawyers at Rutter Mills could help you appeal your denial and fight for the benefits you deserve.

67% of applicants for social security disability benefits are denied. 


For more than 60 years, the Windsor SSD lawyers at Rutter Mills have been helping people get the benefits they deserve.


Improving Your Chances of a Successful Claim

While you can never guarantee success in your SSDI claim, there are certain steps you could take to avoid hurting your claim. First and foremost, always be truthful throughout the process. If you are dishonest in your application or make a contradictory statement, it could result in permanent denial.

Describe your disability accurately. You should never exaggerate, as your medical records could make it clear it is not as serious as you suggest. On the flip side, do not downplay the severity. It is natural for some people to put on a brave face, but SSA could use that against you.

You should continue to see your doctor and follow all treatment modalities. If you are awarded benefits, and you stop treatment for your disability, it could provide SSA grounds for revoking them. If you have not been diagnosed with a specific disability, seek medical treatment immediately. It will be difficult to prove this without extensive medical records backing you up.

Appealing a Social Security Benefits Denial

Despite your best efforts, your initial claim could be denied. The good news is that you have the right to appeal. The appeals process can be complex without the guidance of our team of lawyers for social security disability (SSD) benefits.

There is a strict deadline for appealing your denial. An appeal filed more than 60 days after the initial denial—means you could be barred automatically. Further, waiting too long could forever waive your right to appeal.

The appeals process is similar in every case. First, you must request that your case be reconsidered. Second, you will receive a hearing in front of an administrative law judge. If you are unhappy with the result, your next step could be to file for an Appeals Council review. Your final option during this process is to file an appeal in the appropriate federal district court.
