DENIED A DISABILITY CLAIM? WE CAN HELP!
When you are unable to be gainfully employed as a result of a physical or mental disability, Social Security is there to protect you. And when your Social Security disability application is denied, it is normal to feel helpless and lost. But with the help of an experienced Social Security disability appeal attorney, you can still fight for the benefits you deserve. At the Law Offices of Alan L. Siegel, we protect the rights of disabled workers throughout the Inland Empire and Desert Communities.
The Social Security Appeals Process
Statistically, almost two-thirds of all Social Security disability applications are denied. Yet most of these denials are ultimately reversed when they go through the appeals process. It is easy to feel angry when your initial application is denied. But you must remember that you can still get the benefits you deserve and we can guide you through the appeals process.
The most important thing you must remember when you get your denial letter is that you only have 60 days to file an appeal. As such, it is very important to immediately contact a disability lawyer to start the appeals process.
There are four levels of administrative appeal that we will aggressively push through to get you the Social Security disability benefits you deserve:
- Disability reconsiderations
- Disability hearings before an administrative law judge
- Appeals council reviews
- Judicial reviews before the U.S. District Court
Although all four levels of appeal are available, our goal is to get you the disability benefits that you need as early in the appeals process as possible.
