After you receive a paycheck at work, your eye is drawn to the overall amount and the amount that is taken out of it. This amount accounts for Social Security. Through this system, we are contributing to our future by currently supporting those who need to collect Social Security benefits. Those who collect Social Security may do so for a variety of reasons. These reasons may include those who are retired, disabled, survivors of deceased workers and dependents of beneficiaries. Social Security is put in place to help all those people out during their time of need. If you find yourself in need of collecting Social Security benefits, contact our helpful attorneys for advice. We can consult on your qualifications and guide you through the process.
Can I be denied Social Security benefits?
Applicants face the possibility of being denied Social Security benefits. Our attorneys can help applicants who are denied due to physical or mental disabilities, including spine disorders, back problems, mental illness, heart disease, liver disease, lung disease, uncontrolled diabetes, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines and more. If you are denied, you should take legal action to protect your future. You have the right to request an appeal through the Social Security Appeals Council.
A written request for an appeal must be submitted 60 days from the date of denial. Some appeals may have to go through the process of a hearing while others can be approved by a third party before attending a hearing. If you are denied again at a hearing, you can file a lawsuit with the federal court. If your appeal then gets denied by the federal court, you will not have any more opportunities to appeal the decision about your application.
