Social Security Disability – DENIED!
If this is the response you received from the Social Security Administration, you are not alone – about 40% of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claims are denied the first time they are submitted.
So what do you do? You need to hire an experienced attorney to help you.
Contact Andalman & Flynn now to set up a free consultation to prepare your SSDI appeal.
The Social Security Administration (SSA) receives a massive number of requests for SSDI each year, and operates under the old precept of “deny first, apologize later.” While this approach is designed to weed out SSDI applications that have no merit, many legitimate cases also get lost in this initial shuffle. Those with serious and legitimate disabilities who are denied the first time around often feel discouraged about appealing. They shouldn’t.
At Andalman & Flynn, we have the knowledge and experience to be a valuable ally in your battle to get the SSDI benefits you deserve. Our attorneys:
- Have worked on SSDI claims at all stages – from initial application to appeals to federal court
- Are well-versed in details of the Social Security Act and the hundreds of pages of regulations implementing the Act, and
- Have more than 30 years experience successfully helping clients get the benefits they deserve.
The process is one of details. While you may think that simply telling the SSA that you have multiple sclerosis or depression is enough to be considered disabled and eligible for benefits, they will likely deny your claim and request more information, a lot more information.
Having a competent Disability Law attorney to help you navigate the complex application and appeal process allows you to focus on your own health. At Andalman & Flynn, our attorneys can help you anticipate the many questions your case may present to the SSA, and can assist you in answering those questions to the satisfaction of the SSA.
Remember, Social Security wasn’t designed to care only for the elderly of America. It was created with the wisdom that many workers are struck by the misfortune of severe disability and that as a compassionate society we should provide assistance for those of us unable to work and support ourselves as a result of a major disability.
