Was your application for SSDI benefits denied?

Being unable to work due to a chronic mental or physical illness or permanent disability can be stressful. Many Pennsylvania residents living under these circumstances apply for Social Security Disability benefits only to be told that their claims were denied. What many of those individuals do not realize is that the majority of applications for SSDI benefits are initially denied.

This is in part because the application process is complex, and even one missed piece of documentation can result in a denial. Fortunately, you may still be able to obtain the benefits you need. A Pennsylvania attorney who specializes in this area of law may be invaluable in the appeals process.

In order for an appeal to be successful, it may first be necessary for you to fully understand your medical condition and how it keeps you from earning a living. This will, in turn, help you to effectively communicate what you need from your doctor or doctors to support your claim for benefits. Searching through your medical records for the best evidence that supports the severity of your medical impairment is also vital. All of this investigation and preparation may serve you well at your appeal hearing.

Considering how important SSDI benefits would be to your life, it is most likely not in your best interest to go through this process alone. Like any other insurance program, the Social Security Disability Insurance program tends to lean toward not paying benefits. Therefore, having an attorney advocating for you who understands what is needed in order to obtain those benefits is essential.
