There is nothing more frustrating than when a Pennsylvania resident is hurt or ill and is unable to get the financial assistance to which he or she has a rightful claim. Obtaining needed Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits is a complex process, and many claims are initially denied. Instead of giving up hope, it is important for an applicant to understand how to appeal a denied claim with the help of an experienced lawyer.
Social Security benefits may be available to a person who is unable to work due to an illness or injury. If you paid into the Social Security system, you should be able to claim SSDI benefits if you are unable to work for at least a year or you are not expected to ever recover from the illness or injury. Despite your rightful claim and a complete application, the process of actually getting payments is fraught with complications.
It should be noted that many, if not most, claims are initially denied, but you will have a better chance of a successful appeal with a lawyer’s help. We can thoroughly prepare an appeal, working with doctors and obtaining documentation to further validate your claim. Appealing a denied claim on your own can lead to further frustration and confusion.
Instead of giving up hope when an SSDI claim is denied or assuming that you can handle the appeals alone, find out how we can help you. With our close knowledge of the Social Security system, we can arm you with facts and explain what legal options are available. When your well-being is on the line, turn to a Pennsylvania legal team that knows how to successfully navigate this complex system.
