Social Security Disability Lawyers
Social Security Disability benefits such as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) provide a monthly cash payment to people who are disabled and unable to work. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies more than 60 percent of initial claims. If you are in this difficult position, do not give up hope. Devinney Law Firm, P.C., is here to help.
With more than 50 years of combined experience, our lawyers are well equipped to help you navigate the complex appeals process.
SSDI Benefits Attorneys
Both SSDI and SSI require a claimant to meet the statutory definition of disability. To qualify for SSDI, you must also have worked and paid into the system for a certain period of time. Most SSI and SSDI claims are denied because the applicant did not provide sufficient documentation proving that he or she is totally disabled.
If your initial claim has been denied, you have 60 days from the date of the denial letter to file a written appeal with the SSA. Working with a lawyer to file your appeal can greatly increase the chances your claim will be accepted.
Our attorneys will review your claim and determine why it was denied. If you did not provide sufficient proof of your disability, we will work with your medical providers to ensure you have the appropriate documentation and medical records. We will represent you throughout every step of the appeals process, including reconsideration, hearing by an administrative law judge (ALJ), review by the appeals counsel and, if necessary, in federal court.
