Why Was My Application Denied?
You probably feel bewildered if the Social Security Administration denied your application. The SSA has many valid reasons for denying an application. For example:
- Incomplete applications
- Lack of documentation
- Errors on the application
- Lack of medical evidence
Sometimes, the SSA denies perfectly valid claims. Even if the SSA had a valid reason for denying your claim, you should not give up. You can still work with Willis Spangler Starling to appeal the decision.
What Are The Steps Of An Appeal?
Appealing a denied claim usually has a better chance of success than simply reapplying for SSD. Appealing a claim involving the following:
- You should file a request for reconsideration with the Social Security Administration.
- You should attend a disability hearing at which you can present your reason for appeal.
- An administrative judge will issue a decision on whether to uphold the denial or overturn it and award you benefits.
At every step, you can benefit from working with a lawyer who understands Social Security procedures. The attorneys at Willis Spangler Starling know how to guide you through this process.
