Appealing a Denied Alabama Social Security Disability Claim

Alabama Disability Attorneys: Appealing a Denied Alabama Social Security Disability Claim

Do you live in Alabama, and the Social Security Administration has denied your claim for Social Security Disability Benefits or SSI benefits? Don’t give up-call and experienced Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyer to assist you with your appeal

Many people believe that their initial application for Social Security Disability Benefits was reviewed in detail and that a denial of benefits means that they are not entitled to benefits, so they forgo taking any steps to appeal the denial; this is a mistake. The majority of persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits are denied after their initial application. Often the Social Security Administration makes their initial decision without receiving all your medical records and the Administration simply does not have the resources to contact your main treating physicians to ask the detailed questions needed concerning your condition(s). The fact is that your best chance at being awarded disability benefits is after your appeal.

The Social Security Disability appeals process allows a denied applicant to request a hearing before an impartial Administrative Law Judge, but all appeals must be made in writing within sixty (60) days of the date you received your denial letter.

While the appeals process can be complicated, the experienced Social Security Disability Attorneys at Powell and Denny can help guide you through it while preparing the strongest case possible. If you have been denied Social Security Disability benefits or SSI benefits and you have questions about appealing your case, please consider contacting Powell and Denny today.
