To be considered a disability by the SSA, your condition must interfere with work-related activities and either be included on the administration’s listing of impairments or prevent you from performing the work you did previously. In addition, you must show that you cannot adjust to other types of occupations because of your age, education, work history and skill set.
Denials are very common, but can often be resolved on appeal.
Yes, you can request that the SSA reconsider your claim. If the claim is denied at the reconsideration stage, you can file for a hearing before an administrative law judge, then a review by the Social Security Appeals Council, and ultimately a federal court review, if necessary.
You should promptly file your appeal. A qualified Social Security Administration lawyer can assist you in presenting the best appeal possible.
The deadline for filing an appeal is usually 60 days from the date you receive your notice of denial.
You may be eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), survivor benefits, family benefits or Medicare.
An SSA lawyer can help you file a thorough, well-documented claim, appeal a denial and file a lawsuit in federal court, if necessary.
