Why Was I Turned Down For SSDI/SSI?

Just because you were turned down for disability benefits does not mean that you do not have a good case. The Social Security Administration turns down the majority of people who apply for benefits through SSDI or SSI. In many cases, our lawyers are successful in helping our clients obtain the benefits they deserve through a hearing or an appeal.

Applying for Social Security Disability benefits usually consists of four stages:

  • Initial application: The first step is filing an application for disability benefits online or at your local Social Security Administration office.
  • Reconsideration: If your initial application is denied, you will receive a letter of denial from the Social Security Administration. You have the right to request reconsideration of your claim.
  • Hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, you have the right to request a hearing before a judge. This is your first opportunity to present your case in person.
  • Appeal: If your request for benefits is denied at your hearing, our attorney can file an appeal.

You can contact our lawyers for assistance at any stage of the process. However, it's important to have a lawyer represent you at your hearing with a judge. Our lawyers can present the strongest possible case that you are entitled to benefits.
