Appealing a Denied Disability Claim

Many people in Alabama file for Social Security Disability or SSI Benefits every month. The majority of these applications are summarily denied, meaning that most disabled persons in Alabama will have to appeal their denied disability claim, but appealing your denied disability claim entails much more than merely filling out the correct paperwork within 60 days of the date you were denied disability benefits.

While the first step in appealing your denied disability claim is filling the correct legal paperwork within 60 days of your denial, the real work starts after the appeal has been filed, and this is where a knowledgeable Alabama Social Security Disability attorney is vital to your appeal. An Alabama disability lawyer will obtain copies of, and pay the up front costs of getting all your relevant medical records (and hospitals and doctors are allowed to charge for copies of your records). The Social Security Administration does not have the resources to ensure that this is done; nor do they have the time to ask your treating physician pertinent questions concerning your condition(s). An experienced Alabama Social Security Disability attorney will be able to do this because of their knowledge of the law concerning claims for Social Security Disability benefits and SSI benefits.

Appealing a denied disability claim can be confusing and frustrating, especially given the laws related to Social Security Disability and SSI benefits. You don't have to go through this process alone. If you live in Alabama, have a denied disability claim and would like the assistance an experienced Alabama Social Security Disability attorney can provide, the attorneys at Powell and Denny would be happy to help.
