Overcoming Social Security Disability Denials
If you have received a denial letter from the U.S. Social Security Administration after you applied for Social Security Disability benefits, you may want to appeal. You should be aware that, in most cases, you must appeal the decision within 60 days of the date of the letter notifying you that your claim was denied. At Nix & Kirkland, P.A., we provide competent, professional assistance with all aspects of the SSD application process.
Your denial letter from the Social Security Administration may be called “Notice of Disapproved Claim,” “Notice of Reconsideration” or “Notice of Federal Reviewing Official Decision.”
Our attorneys can help you appeal your denial or partial or total disability benefits. We can request a rehearing, request reconsideration, submit another application with supplemental medical records, and even appeal the denial before an administrative law judge. Keep in mind, though, that the process is not a speedy one: Some SSD applicants wait as long as two years before their application is finally approved.
No Legal Fees Due Upfront
If we represent you in your SSD appeal, we will do so on a contingency basis. You will not owe lawyers’ fees until your case is successful and you receive a retroactive lump-sum payment of past-due benefits. Our fee will be a percentage of that total and all future monthly payments will be yours alone.
