For Most, Your Initial SSD Application Will Be Denied

Those who are in need of Social Security Disability benefits deserve the financial security and better livelihood that comes with them. Individuals who are unable to work because of something that cannot control should not be left to suffer at a disadvantage. Thus, applying for Social Security Disability benefits is one of the most important and necessary steps a person can take to help themselves and their families.

Unfortunately, being denied benefits is a common occurrence. Indeed, the vast majority of initial Social Security Disability claims are denied. Thankfully, there are options for those who have been denied SSI or SSDI benefits. The Law Offices of Sandra Serra in Leominster, Massachusetts, is here to help.

Appeal, Appeal, Appeal

If your initial claim is denied, do not lose hope: It is possible to appeal the initial decision for reconsideration. If the reconsideration is denied, you can appeal and request a hearing in front of a judge. Even if benefits are denied then, you can appeal to an appeals council. The journey may be lengthy and complicated, but there a lot of options.
