What Can I Do If Social Security Disability Is Denied?
If your application for Social Security Disability benefits has been denied, do not give up. The majority of initial applications are denied at first. This is simply how the system works. A denial does not mean you are not eligible, and it does not mean that you will not eventually get benefits. It just means that it is time to move on to the next step in the process. The Social Security Disability lawyers at Morgan & Justice in Columbus can help you take that step.
Why Your Social Security Claim Was Denied
People often wonder why their application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) was denied. There may be any number of reasons. Perhaps a certain piece of documentation was missing. Perhaps the documentation was not specific enough in explaining what your disability is and how it prevents you from working. Perhaps something was overlooked.
We will review your claim. We will determine why it was denied, and we will gather additional medical documentation and other information to support your claim. Our attorneys are skilled at building strong cases and pursuing them through all stages of appealing denied claims.
