The majority of Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) applications are initially denied. If your claim is denied, you have only 60 days to apply for reconsideration, so you need to begin working on it immediately.
An experienced SSDI lawyer can help you present a strong argument.
You must apply for reconsideration in order to get a disability hearing, so it is imperative that you speak with an attorney soon after you are denied. At Pruitt & Pruitt, we represent people in South Carolina who are filing for Social Security disability insurance benefits. To make an appointment, please call 864-224-3121 or send us an e-mail.
After your initial application for Social Security disability insurance benefits is denied, you need to gather any new information that strengthens your case. We can help you with the documents and medical information you need. We can also explain why your initial application was denied and correct the problem. This often involves listing all of your doctors, making sure the doctors specify all limitations and providing the correct dates.
You must be able to prove that you cannot perform gainful employment to receive Social Security disability insurance. Judges have become harder to convince, so it is beneficial to have the help of an attorney to present your case.
Because of a backlog of cases within Social Security, you can wait up to two years for an appeal hearing. We can ask for your case to be expedited if the situation is dire.
Contact us after you receive the first denial and we will help. Please call our Anderson office at 864-224-3121.
