What are the chances of winning a disability benefits appeal after an SSDI or SSI denial?
Don’t let an initial denial of your SSDI or SSI application discourage you. A denial of an initial claim application is more common than you might think. In 2014, over 70% of initial applications are denied according to Social Security Administration statistics. However, those statistics show that over 50% of denials which entered appeals were reversed at some point in the process. With such a good chance of an appeal reversing your denial, why wouldn’t you file an appeal?
An initial denial may simply indicate that your case requires further evidence and support than similar claims which have been submitted. That is the very reason the SSD appeal process was set in place. If the appeal process seems daunting to you, it doesn’t need to be. Give us a call. We’ll take care of all the paperwork and get to work on having your case approved.
What’s the deadline for filing an appeal?
A disability benefits applicant only has 60 days from their denial date to file their official appeal. Procrastination can lead to missing that deadline and forfeiting your opportunity to have the denial reversed. DO NOT DELAY. If you deadline to file an appeal is nearing, we can file the appeal the same day you hire us. Contact our office immediately. Our attorneys will get your appeal filed right away with no hassle or additional cost to you at all.
