A denial doesn’t mean the end of the road.
Receiving a notice of denial of a Social Security Disability or long term disability benefits can be discouraging. Most likely, you were counting on benefits to replace a portion of the income you are no longer able to earn due to an accident or illness. A denial of benefits is actually more common than you might think. The Social Security Administration reports that approximately 65% percent of initial applications are denied, and many insurance companies seem to turn down the majority of disability claims the first time. If your claim for long term disability insurance benefits or Social Security Disability has been denied, don’t give up hope. With persistence and the help of experienced attorneys like those at Andalman & Flynn, you’ll greatly increase your chances for a successful appeal.
You don’t have to go it alone.
Fortunately, you have the right to appeal a denial of benefits, but your window of time is short. While you can attempt to navigate the complex appeals process on your own, many people find that it’s better to seek the aid of a qualified disability appeal attorney. These cases are inherently complicated, and each one is unique. Even a minor error can damage your appeal, causing yet another denial of benefits. At Andalman & Flynn, our lawyers are trained and experienced in handling challenging disability cases and appeals. We can perform a variety of critical functions such as obtaining medical records and collecting key evidence to support your claim. We may even be able to strengthen your case and develop an appeal that gets results. Put our experience to work for you to get the benefits you deserve.

Client Testimonial – What A Breeze
“From: Bob, Santa Fe, NM Elliott Andalman and staff, particularly Ms. Haamid, expertly handled my applications for disability retirement from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). Their painstaking attention to detail made it possible for my applications to be approved in near-record time (6 months for OPM and 2… months for SSA). More importantly, Elliott’s sensitive but powerful gift of persuasion made personal contacts with my supervisor and physicians into positive experiences. He made these necessary exchanges easy for the participants so that application responses were handled efficiently, effectively, and painlessly. My supervisor even complimented me on Elliott’s adept handling of the application process. My kudos to Elliott and Ms. Haamid.” Read more “Client Testimonial – What A Breeze”
