Is It Time To Appeal After An SSDI Denial?
If you have applied for Social Security Disability benefits and have been denied, don’t panic. This is a very common outcome. Many people go through the process of seeking benefits, being denied and then appealing before they succeed.
You no doubt realize that an appeal is best left to an attorney. Morgan, White-Davis & Martinez, P.A., has years of experience and a track record of success. We have helped many Floridians obtain the SSDI benefits that they qualified for after an initial denial or more than one. Our appeal representation extends to numerous clients in Winter Park, Orlando and Orange County.
How The Appeals Process Works
You may have already experienced the first phase: the application and denial. More than 65% of initial SSDI claims are denied after the initial application.
The next phase is referred to as “reconsideration.” The Social Security Administration (SSA) will reconsider your initial application upon request. You may submit additional evidence of your disability at this time.
If the reconsideration still results in a denial, you may request a hearing before an SSA administrative law judge (ALJ).
If the administrative hearing is not successful and you remain convinced that you have a compelling case, you may take it before the Federal District Court of Appeals.
Clients of Morgan, White-Davis & Martinez, P.A., benefit from our experience, dedication and aggressive representation every step of the way. We are prepared to:
- Review your medical records
- Communicate with your health care providers and, if appropriate, enlist your doctors’ assistance as expert witnesses at your hearing or trial
- Gather information about your daily life to demonstrate the truth about your disabilities
- Prepare to present a compelling case before any decision-maker such as a judge
If we represent you, we pledge to do all that we can to expedite the process. We have helped many clients bypass some of the usual waiting time by presenting evidence of hardship.
