Challenging A Claim Denial

You don't have to sit passively by when faced with a denied claim for Social Security disability (SSD) benefits or supplemental security income (SSI). You can appeal a claim denial — and in practice you may have to do so in order to get benefits.

So don't get discouraged. Instead, get help from a law firm with the experience to bring successful appeals of claim denials.

At Thiry & Caddell, in Mobile, we have this experience, along with a proven track record of getting results for clients. Give us a call today to discuss your specific situation in a confidential consultation.

What Are The Steps In The Appeals Process For SSD Or SSI?

Appealing a denied claim for Social Security benefits is not only possible. The way the system works, it is sometimes necessary in order to obtain the benefits you are eligible for.

There are very specific rules, however, involved in the appeal process. For starters, you need to make a request for an appeal within 60 days of receiving the letter from the Social Security Administration (SSA) denying your claim.

It's also important to be aware that there are actually four different levels of appeal that are possible. These range from asking the SSA for reconsideration of a denied SSD claim to seeking a review in federal court.

In many cases, what is needed is to gather more documentation — particularly medical records — to support your claim. Our lawyers have challenged many claim denials effectively and can explain what steps make sense for your specific situation.
