You've Been Denied Social Security Disability Benefits - Now What?

Calling our Brandon Social Security disability lawyer should be your first step  

About a third of applications for Social Security disability benefits are rejected, which means there is a high likelihood that your application will be denied as well. Many applications are rejected for errors in the way the application was filed, such as missing information or providing the wrong documentation. Many applications are rejected because they don't have the proper medical support or because they don't meet the disability guidelines set by the administration. 

If your application for Social Security disability benefits has been denied, don't give up. The first thing you should do is call The Golden Law Group and work with one of our experienced Brandon Social Security disability lawyers. With more than two decades of knowledge and experience, our Social Security attorneys know the ins-and-outs of the SSD system and work hard to ensure you receive the SSD benefits you deserve.  

We help you with the appeals process 

The first stage in the appeals process is filing a Request for Reconsideration within 60 days of your rejection. That's why it is so important to contact one of our Brandon SSD attorneys as quickly as possible. The sooner you act, the more time we have to review the details of your case and put together the strongest application possible. 

Request for reconsideration 

If your Request for Reconsideration is also denied, you then move forward by requesting a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge. If you have not worked with an attorney on the Request for Reconsideration, you should absolutely contact our office at this stage. One of our skilled Social Security attorneys help you understand what to expect at the hearing and help you put together the strongest case possible to obtain the benefits you need, including gathering all required medical evidence and expert opinions from doctors who specialize in your disability. If you are denied by the Administrative Law Judge, the next step is filing a review by the Appeals Council.  

Our attorneys do everything possible at each stage of the appeals process to make your case as strong as possible. We may call witnesses or medical experts, we may ask you to be examined by new doctors, and gather extensive information about your medical and job history. 

The worst thing you can do if your disability application is denied is to do nothing. Many people also make the mistake of just filing a new application. That application will almost certainly be denied because it will include the same information and be reviewed using the same acceptance criteria.
