Denied Social Security Disability?
Pennsylvania & Missouri Social Security Disability Attorneys
Unfortunately, if you find yourself seriously ill or injured and you are forced to stop working, your bills don’t stop. Hopefully, you paid into Social Security while you were working, and now those disability benefits can help keep you afloat.
The federal Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) provides benefits for people with mental or physical health issues that prevent them from working for at least 12 months. Complicated rules determine who qualifies and the monthly payment. Most applications are denied. Some people have a qualifying disability but have not paid enough Social Security taxes to get disability benefits. These low-income applicants may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), instead.
If your application was denied or you’re confused by the whole procedure, our team at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Koehler & Wall can help. Years of working with clients in Pennsylvania and Missouri who’ve been denied benefits give us keen insight into the system, and we know the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies many applications in error.
Reasons the SSA denies SSDI or SSI claims include:
- Illness or injury does not constitute disability
- Applicant has not paid sufficient taxes
- Not enough evidence provided to support claim
While Social Security requirements can be confusing, and denied benefits discouraging, filing an appeal can give you a better chance of being approved. Hiring our experienced Social Security disabilities lawyers improves your odds even more, and gets rid of the headache from dealing with the SSA. We’ll take over the appeal, act on your behalf, and explain the process as we go.
As Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Koehler & Wall disability benefits attorneys in Pennsylvania and Missouri, we have years of experience handling the SSA’s application and appeals processes. We know what supporting evidence is most effective and how to present it. Contact us today and we will fight alongside you to get the benefits that you really deserve.
