Why Was My Social Security Disability Claim Denied?
Did Social Security Deny Your Claim for Disability Benefits?
If so, the most important thing you should know is that shouldn’t give up!
It’s incredibly frustrating when you can’t work due to your physical or mental condition and your claim for disability benefits is denied. Appealing a denial can be long and time-consuming process, but winning your appeal is possible. However, you only have 60 days to appeal from the time you receive your denial letter. If you were denied, call disability attorney Merryl Jones to appeal.
Receiving a denial letter doesn’t mean your case is over. Our Social Security appeals lawyer Merryl Jones knows the process. She’ll file an appeal to an Administrative Law Judge on your behalf.
If an Administrative Law Judge denies your claim, we can appeal to the Appeals Council. Even if the Appeals Council denies your claim, it’s possible to appeal your case in Federal Court.
