Appealing Denied Social Security Disability Claims

More than half of all Social Security disability (SSD) claims are denied, even for those who should otherwise qualify for SSD benefits. Denial is often attributable to minor errors in the application itself, insufficient medical evidence of a condition or a simple mistake in the application process.

Anyone who has had their SSD application denied has the right to appeal the decision. However, success is much more likely when an experienced attorney is on your side. If you have been denied Social Security disability benefits, you must appeal within 60 days. At Berman & Asbel, LLP, we help guide clients through the complex SSD appeals process so they can obtain the benefits to which they are entitled.

Please discuss your SSD denial with one of our Greater Philadelphia lawyers today — you should not be without the benefits you need any longer than necessary. Schedule an initial consultation by calling 484-842-0276 or contact us online.

How to File a Successful Appeal

A successful appeal requires medical proof of your disabling condition. Many people who were initially denied are tempted to forego treatment due to being discouraged, but this could be a big mistake. Discontinuing medical treatment decreases your chances of success on appeal dramatically.

Our attorneys will review the status of your medical records and the reason you were denied. We will then gather anything that is missing and submit to the Social Security Administration on your behalf. We will also work with you closely before your hearing to prepare you on how to respond to questions that may be asked throughout the appeals hearing.

Our Help Is Affordable

Do not be afraid to seek help due to financial worries — fees are set by statute. We are only paid a small percentage of recovered SSDI and SSI benefits, as well as a limited amount of out-of-pocket expenses.

In addition to filing Social Security disability claim appeals on your behalf, we can also assist with:

  • SSDI applications
  • SSI applications

The fee structure is the same for filing an original application as for appealing a Social Security disability claim.
