Helping Those Seeking Social Security Disability Benefits
On average, more than 1 million people every year are denied Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits. The arrival of a denial letter can be frustrating and even heartbreaking—especially after what may have already been a long and complicated application or appeals process.
The Social Security Disability lawyers at Lundy Law want you to know that hope isn’t lost. We know the ins and outs of the disability program, and we want to help if you’ve been denied benefits in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware.
What You Can Do to Improve Your Chances of Approval
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has strict guidelines that determine whether or not to deny your application. They’ll evaluate a number of factors, including the severity of your disability, your work history, and your earnings.
When you file your application or appeal, follow these tips to help improve your chances of approval:
- Complete your application in detail.Fill out your application or appeal form as completely as you can the first time, explaining your situation in great detail. Providing the SSA with a thoroughly documented application or appeal may improve your chances of approval.
- Provide a complete medical history and work history.Don’t trust that your doctors’ reports are complete; review them to make sure they include information the SSA will be looking for. We can help you document your claim.
- Don’t give up, and don’t delay.If you’re denied at the initial application level, file your appeal as soon as you can. The faster you file an appeal, the sooner your hearing may be scheduled.
