What to do when you are denied Social Security Disability

Being denied Social Security can be very stressful and may feel like you are getting nowhere.  It is both inconvenient and very time consuming to deal with.  While hiring a legal representative is not required, it is very beneficial and can streamline the process. If you have been denied Social Security, there are a few things to do:

Never resign yourself to giving up on a claim

No matter how many times you have been denied, do not give up. Sometimes it takes multiple times to get approved. Once again, a firm can facilitate this process immensely.

Find out why your claim was denied

If your case is not accepted at first, it is important to find out the reasons and details. Quite frequently, there are deadlines to meet and if you are not proactive, you could miss your window of opportunity. Contacting your case manager and finding out more information is very beneficial and will make the process go more smoothly.

Always appeal your claim

If you were rejected, remember this mantra, persevere, re-apply, and repeat.  If you do not turn in your application in enough time, it may result in it being denied. There are a few rules to take in consideration, so seeking out legal advice is the best route.
