What Must be Done After Social Security Benefits are Denied
The most important thing to do if your Social Security Disability benefits have been denied is to speak to a Raleigh injury attorney.
The Whitley Law Firm understands Social Security law and the ways in which a person can correctly file their application. In many unfortunate cases, an individual who is too injured or ill to remain in the working world will file their application correctly, only to find out later it has been denied. Sometimes, having an attorney at your side will make all the difference.
Your lawyer can provide you with all of the detailed information you need to know about filing your original Social Security Disability claim, including whether you will have a better chance of obtaining financial resources with Supplemental Security Income instead.
According to the Social Security Administration’s Annual Statistical Report on the Social Security Disability Insurance Program in 2010, benefits were paid to just under 9.4 million people, and disabled workers accounted for over 89% of all awards.
By December of 2010, payments to disabled beneficiaries equaled approximately $9.6 billion. Benefits were terminated for 640,678 workers during this year.
Benefits are not awarded to every disabled, injured or ill worker, and are awarded for many different reasons. They are applied on a basis of need, and many applications are denied each year.
If your application has been denied, our law firm can help you compile an appeal that may lead to the decision by the SSA to give you Social Security Disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income.
