Social Security Disability Insurance can help to provide the financial stability that disabled parties cannot provide for themselves. Unfortunately, parties who are in need of the benefits may face denials for various reasons.
Thankfully there are a few different options that parties may choose from to reach the best possible outcome. In order to select the right choice, it is important to know the available options in regards to next steps after an SSDI denial.
Submit an appeal
For those looking to challenge a denial, it may be beneficial to pursue an appeal. The appeal process allows filers to not only challenge the denial but also to present additional information that may support the filer’s eligibility for the benefits. It allows the filer to be more involved with the review process, as well, as a local court handles the appeal and the filer may attend the court proceedings.
File a new claim
In some cases, it may be best for parties to begin the process fresh with a new claim. Submitting a new claim allows parties to ensure that they provide all necessary paperwork and information at once. For those who realize they may have had errors in their initial application, a new claim may be quite beneficial.
The right option
Determining the reason for the initial denial can be quite helpful in figuring out the right option for further SSDI pursuits. If a party is not sure of this answer, it can help to seek the opinion of a professional. Doing so can help to pinpoint the issues and aid in creating a strong appeal or claim that hopefully garners different results.
Ultimately, it is up to the filer to select the best option for him or her. However, having an understanding of the process and requirements can aid in reaching the intended goal.
