SSD Dos & Don'ts
Trusted Reno Social Security Disability Firm
The number of applications received by the
SSA has escalated disproportionately to the amount of money available to pay
benefits. As a result, it’s becoming more difficult to get approval
for benefits by those truly qualified. Over 60% of SSD claims will be
denied on the initial application. After a
denial of SSD benefits is received, an applicant has 60 days in which to file an appeal. The
SSA rejects 85% of these appeals.
With the odds stacked against you, it’s important to take every necessary
step to ensure you have the best chance at an approved application. Below
are a list of "Do's and Don'ts" recommended by an experienced
lawyer or representative from
Disability Action Advocates (DAA). After 20 years of winning thousands of claims, we have extensive experience
with what claims are approved and what claims are denied.
