Ocala DDS Appeals Attorney

There are three important things to know if your initial application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Social Security Income (SSI) has been denied:

  • A high percentage of initial applications are denied. — Just because your claim was denied does not mean you should give up. More than half of all initial claims are denied.
  • There are opportunities to appeal, but they are limited. — While there are multiple chances to appeal an initial rejection of your application for disability benefits, they are not unlimited. You cannot afford to waste even a single opportunity by presenting a case that is less than the strongest one that can be presented.
  • Working with an experienced attorney can maximize your chances. — Because your chances to appeal are limited, you need to make each attempt at securing benefits count. By working with an attorney who understands the Social Security Administration and how it approaches awarding disability benefits to people, you give yourself the strongest chance of securing the benefits you need.

There are various stages within the SSD process which allow a person to present further evidence to support his or her claim for benefits. Once all of the opportunities within the SSA have been exhausted, a person can begin filing claims in the federal courts, staring with U.S. District Court. As with other civil matters, loss at the District Court level can be appealed at the U.S. Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.
