Dealing with a SSD benefits application – and an initial denial

On Behalf of | Aug 4, 2021 | Social Security Disability Benefits

Throughout the country millions of people receive Social Security Disability benefits – including many people in California. This program is setup to help workers who become disabled and who are unable to return to the workforce for the foreseeable future. However, if you have been injured or have developed a health condition that will prevent you from returning to work, you likely have many pressing concerns on your mind – including how to apply for SSD benefits to begin with.

At our law firm, we do our best to help California residents who are going through the initial application stage of the SSD benefits process. But, we don’t stop there. As many of our readers may know, a high percentage of applications for SSD benefits are denied. At our law firm, we also try to help those who face this dilemma.

As a recent news article noted, an application for SSD benefits can be resubmitted. However, a denial can also be appealed, as the recent article also noted. But, there are strict deadlines to follow if you are appealing an initial denial of a SSD benefits application. It is crucial to keep those deadlines in mind and, with the right approach, hopefully have success in asking the Social Security Administration to take a second look at your initial application.
