More than 60 percent of all initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied, according to the Social Security Administration (www.SSA.gov). In 2007, that number reached nearly 65 percent.
When so many applications are denied at the initial level, it can be discouraging—but don’t give up. At Lundy Law, we have skilled Social Security Disability lawyers who will guide you through the appeals process and ensure you get the money you need.
The SSA defines “disability” by the following qualifiers:
You cannot do work you did before
You cannot adjust to other work because of your medical conditions
Your disability has lasted or is expected to last for at least one year or to result in death
If you have been denied SSD benefits in Pennsylvania, Delaware, or New Jersey—we can help. Our Social Security attorneys know the claims process and will fight to make sure you get the money you need for medical bills and lost wages. Get serious help—get Lundy Law.
