Appealing SSD Claim Denials
Understanding the SSD Claim Denial Appeals Process
It's no secret that social security disability claims are denied far more often than they are accepted. While appeals and hearings provide a formal and organized means of challenging the denial of an SSD claim, more still are denied in this second and final attempt.
A claim may be denied for any reason, even potentially as a deterrent to keep the level of SSD benefits recipients on the lower end of the spectrum. If your SSD claim has been denied, enlist the services of a hard-hitting lawyer who knows how to get the best results possible.
Taking the First Necessary Step
The first step in any appeal to a SSD claim denial is to move for reconsideration, which is a process whereby your claim will be decided upon by a party previously not associated with the case. If this method fails, a disability hearing may be requested within 60 days. This process allows new evidence to be brought to the forefront, and a new chance at a compelling pursuit of benefits. Your lawyer can use this opportunity to formulate a sound strategy designed to get the most favorable results possible.
