Has Your SSD Claim Been Denied?
After going through the process of applying for Social Security disability benefits, it can be extremely discouraging to get a letter indicating a denied claim. Don't be discouraged. This is not the end of the process.
The reality of the situation is that most people are initially denied for Social Security disability benefits. That's simply the way the system works. At Abes Baumann, we know the system. We know the steps to take to overcome a denied disability claim and help you get the benefits you need.
Taking Denied Claims to the Next Level
In Pennsylvania, the next step after receiving a denial is to request an SSD hearing before a federal administrative law judge. This is basically an appeal.
To prepare for the hearing, our attorneys will gather all of the necessary evidence. Primarily, this will be medical evidence to prove your disability. The Social Security Administration has a file on your case, but there is a good chance that it is incomplete and poorly assembled. We fill in the gaps to provide a complete picture when we present your case in front of the judge.
Typically, we achieve success at this level. If not, there are additional steps that can be taken. The next step is an appeal to the Appeals Council. If that doesn't work, we can take the matter to United States District Court. We will keep moving forward to see that you get the results you deserve.
