WHAT CAN I DO IF MY CLAIM IS DENIED?
Many people get discouraged when they file a claim for the first time and it is denied. However, the truth is that many claims are denied at first, even ones that seem perfectly legitimate.
Fortunately, the SSA gives you 60 days from receiving a denial to file an appeal. Our attorneys can help you file a request for reconsideration. We will review your denial letter to help determine what additional information and evidence to provide to hopefully get your application approved.
If this first appeal is unsuccessful, we can take you through the next step in the appeals process. We are prepared to continue appealing and possibly file a federal lawsuit to obtain the compensation you deserve.
