A Denial Isn’t The End Of Your Social Security Disability Claim

Applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a big step that requires a lot of effort. It’s incredibly disheartening to learn that your claim has been denied. Fortunately, claim denials aren’t the end of the road.

At the Law Offices of Daniel Berger in New York City, we devote our practice entirely to disability law. A major part of our practice involves helping people with disabilities overturn claim denials and get the full benefits they deserve. We can pursue the right avenue for getting your case back on track. You can benefit from our lawyers’ many decades of disability law experience – including extensive experience handling denied claims.

Why You Need A Lawyer After An SSI Or SSD Claim Denial

Many people pursue disability benefits or SSI by filing an application on their own, only to get a denial. Unfortunately, denials are exceedingly common at this stage of the process. In fact, according to the Social Security Administration’s own data, more than 60 percent of SSD applications are initially denied.

Some people make the mistake of continuing to handle the case on their own, thinking they can convince the administrative law judge to overturn the denial. Often, that strategy results in further setbacks.

The best thing you can do to maximize your chances of success is to work with a knowledgeable SSI and SSD attorney. Our lawyers can represent you in the all-important hearing before an administrative law judge. We understand what kind of evidence these judges are looking for. We can help you put your strongest foot forward to avoid further denials.

Frequently Asked Questions About SSI And SSD Claim Denials

Below you will find answers to common questions about SSI and SSD claim denials. Talk with our team to get answers to your specific questions.

My claim was denied; can I just file a new application?

No. The Social Security Administration will already have your information and access to your initial application, so you can’t simply start over.

I have a disabling condition on the list of impairments and still was denied. Does that mean my impairment is not really disabling?

No. There are many reasons for claim denials. One of the most common is insufficient evidence. Our lawyers can investigate your medical records and present the compelling evidence needed to show that you are sufficiently impaired to qualify for disability benefits.

Can I supplement the medical evidence after my claim has been denied?

Yes, but because you have limited opportunities to do so, it’s important to work with a qualified lawyer. Our attorneys know what kind of medical evidence is needed. We will take a thorough approach in preparing the strong evidence necessary to prevent further denials.
