What To Do If Your Claim Is Denied
If your application for Social Security Disability benefits was denied, you are not alone. Most initial applications are denied.
Your next step should be to contact an experienced lawyer like me, Gary Jones, at The Law Center for Social Security Disability in Oklahoma City. I will work to help you overcome a denied Social Security claim and get the benefits you need.
Why Was Your Claim Rejected?
A claim may be denied for many reasons. Your denial letter from the Social Security Administration may offer some clues.
Perhaps at the bottom of the page where it lists medical records, there is something missing such as a specific doctor or hospital. On the second page, where it addresses the specified disabilities, perhaps there is inaccurate information.
I will review this denial document with you to determine what, if anything, was missing or overlooked by the Social Security Administration.
What You Can Do
Many people give up after receiving notice that their claim was denied. They think they must not be eligible, but that is not necessarily the case.
I will help you determine whether you are truly eligible and, if you are, I will guide you through the appeals process to help you get Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
