Why SSDI Applicants Need A Lawyer

disabledAt first when you end up in the position where you need SSDI benefits it looks like a pretty simple process. In your opinion you have incurred a disability and you need financial help, and you assume that you meet the criteria so it is just a matter of applying for it. That is when the first reality that this is no easy task sets in.

The Power Of Representation

Even in your initial attempts to get the ball rolling which is filling out your application has proven to be quite a challenge. You have tried repeatedly to get through to your SSDI office to no avail, and the long line ups at a local office are just too much to endure. If you are one of the fortunate ones that do manage to get past this level and go through all the procedures and believe that you have proven that you have met the criteria for SSDI you are anxiously awaiting your first payment. Then you receive a notice that your application has not been accepted. This is virtually mind shocking. There could be a whole gambit of reasons why your claim has been denied, and this is extremely common.

Whatever the reason is if you feel that the decision is unjust you would do well to utilize the services of a disability lawyer. This expert will be able to discern the reasons for denial and help you provide the supporting evidence of your case that may be lacking. Trying to get your claim approved could take months and in the meantime you are depending on that money. In cases like this you simply cannot afford not to get some legal help on your side.

What Can I do if I am denied SSDI?

applicationThe  first thing you have to do if you are denied your SSDI is not give up. There could be one or several reasons why your application for SSDI was denied. You may not have applied properly or you did not have enough supporting evidence for your disability. It is not uncommon for individuals to be denied on their first application.

Why Reapply?

Technically you should have been given some type of explanation as to why you weren’t accepted but this can often be vague and confusing. You do have an option to apply for reconsideration, and if this is granted then it is highly important that you understand why you were denied the first time and you aptly address these issues. It could be that your file is lacking pertinent medical information and you have the right to see what your file contains and what material the decision was based on. If reconsideration is denied that doesn’t mean that’s the end of your chances to be eligible. You now have the right to request a hearing, but there is a time limit for doing this. If you have any doubts that your SSI may be denied initially you might want to have a consultation with a SSDI lawyer, who can advise you as to whether you would benefit from legal counsel throughout the application process. If you are going to a hearing you will certainly benefit from having a SSDI attorney who specializes in SSDI represent you.
