If you have been denied Social Security disability benefits, you may feel overwhelmed and confused. You may be wondering what your options are and how you can get the financial support you need. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Many people face this difficult situation every year.

At Butwinick Injury Law, we understand the frustration and fear that comes with being denied Social Security disability benefits. We are here to help you understand your options and provide you with the legal representation you need to pursue the benefits you deserve.

Appeal Your Denial

The first option you should consider is appealing your denial. You have the right to appeal the decision if you disagree with it. You must file your appeal within 60 days of receiving your denial letter. When you file an appeal, you will need to provide additional evidence that demonstrates why you should be approved for benefits. This can include medical records, doctor’s notes, and other documents that support your case.

Request a Reconsideration

If you are still denied after appealing, you can request a reconsideration. This is a review of your case by a different Social Security representative. During the reconsideration process, you can provide additional evidence and explain why you should be approved for benefits.

Request a Hearing

If the reconsideration process does not result in a favorable decision, you can request a hearing. During a hearing, you will be able to present your case in person before an administrative law judge. This is your opportunity to explain why you should be approved for benefits and provide additional evidence.

Hire an Attorney
