Social Security Disability Income Benefits provide federal benefits to persons who are injured or sick and are unable to work. Benefits given are determined on an individual basis, based on past wages. It is not uncommon for an initial social security disability claim to be denied. However, if your initial appeal is denied, you can, and many times should, appeal and ask for a hearing where you will have a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
It is critical that all claimants understand that receiving a denial letter from Social Security does not mean that you are not entitled to benefits. It is at this stage where an attorney experienced in Social Security appeals can help. More than half of the social security claims that are denied and appealed are eventually approved at this level. Our firm will help you file all of your appeals claims, obtain medical records that you will need, and Ms. Bullard personally appears with all of our clients on their day in Court to handle their hearing.
