About Denied SSD Benefits
Appealing the Denial of Your Claim
If your claim for
Social Security Disability (SSD) has been denied, you can appeal and have your case reviewed. You have
sixty days from receipt of the denial to request an
appeal. At The Law Office of Mike Angel, my 20 years of experience has proven
that the appeals process can be long and complex. Frequently, it can take
up to a year or more to successfully navigate through the various levels
of appeals. With the help of a diligentArkansas social security disability benefits lawyer, the appeals process can be made easier and more successful.
The first step of your appeal is simply called "reconsideration".
As with each level, the reconsideration will review all of your information
plus any additional information that is supplied. Many times claims have
been filed by an individual without the assistance of a qualified attorney.
Unfortunately, the result can be incomplete or incorrect information being
filed resulting in a claim being denied. There are three other levels
of appeal of your case that I can pursue if reconsideration by the Social
Security Administration is not successful.
Arkansas Social Security Disability Benefits Attorney
It is important to know that in some cases, benefits you were receiving
before the denial can be continued. I can explain what those situations
are and how benefits may be paid while your appeal is ongoing. I also
want you to know that if your appeal is successful at any level, you can
get paid the past-due benefits you had been denied.
Appeals can be won by carefully reviewing what has been submitted thus
far in close comparison to the requirements of the Social Security Administration
guidelines for claims. At times, it can be as simple as insufficient medical
documentation to prove the disability that you have. I work with each
client as an individual who deserves my best efforts. I know that your
benefits are important to you and keep this foremost in mind as I work
on your behalf.
