Was Your Initial SSD Benefits Application Denied?
Most people are not aware of this, but approximately two out of three initial applications for Social Security Disability benefits are denied. There are many reasons for this ranging from people applying without the benefit of legal assistance to insufficient documentation.
If your initial application for SSD benefits has been denied, you may fear that is the final word on the matter and you are not able to receive the help those benefits could mean to you.
A Denied Application Is Only Another Step In The Process
After having your application denied, there are many other steps that can lead to you securing SSD benefits. Each of those steps is a chance to successfully show the Social Security Administration (SSA) why you deserve disability benefits.
Make The Most Of Each Chance To Secure Benefits
However, there are a limited number of additional steps beyond the initial application. Each one is a valuable opportunity that you need to make the most out of. That is why it is good to secure the representation of an experienced SSD lawyer. Every step in the process where you present less than the strongest case puts you closer to not being able to receive any benefits at all.
