It is easy to lose hope when
you receive notification that your application for Social Security Disability benefits was
denied. However, most applications for Social Security Disability benefits are
denied at this initial stage. A Jackson Social Security
Disability Lawyer can
explain each step of the process and the obstacles that are likely to arise
throughout the process. Many applications are initially denied because they
were not completed correctly. After an application is denied, the applicant has
sixty days to appeal the decision. This period is called the Reconsideration
stage. During this stage, over 85% of reconsidered applications are denied. If
your application is one of the many that is denied during this stage, you can
request a hearing in front of an Administrative Law Judge for your last chance
to have your application approved.
How Can a Jackson Social Security Disability Lawyer Help?
A Jackson Social Security
Disability Lawyer can assist in every step of the process. He or
she can help you fill out the application correctly and supply the necessary
documentation. The lawyers staff can assemble employment records, medical
records and a Residual Functional Capacity form into a comprehensive timeline.
Having a Jackson Social Security Disability Lawyer at the
initial stage of filing your application can dramatically increase your chances
of approval. A disability lawyer is familiar with the documentation that you
need to include and the manner in which you must complete your claim. If your
application has already been denied, your lawyer can explain the reasons that
the Social Security Administration denied your claim and explain the steps that
you can take to strengthen your claim. Your lawyer will attend your hearing and
will argue your case in front of a judge. Attempting to argue your case
yourself with limited experience with the law and the program may cause you to
lose your case and can cause you to be denied benefits that you rightly
deserve. Most Social Security Disability lawyers accept these types of cases on
a contingency basis, so if you do not win, you will not owe the lawyer any
money. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain by contacting a Social
Security Disability Lawyer.
