Denied Social Security Disability Benefits in Birmingham

You live in the metro Birmingham, Alabama area* and your claim for Social Security Disability Benefits has been denied; now what? Appeal the decision. Many people believe that their initial application was reviewed in detail and that a denial of benefits means that they are not entitled to benefits, so they forgo taking any steps to appeal the denial; this is a mistake. The majority of persons who apply for Social Security Disability benefits are denied after their initial application. Often the Social Security Administration makes their initial decision without receiving all your medical records and the Administration simply does not have the resources to contact your main treating physicians to ask the detailed questions needed concerning your condition(s). The fact is that your best chance at being awarded disability benefits is after your appeal.

You have sixty (60) days from the date of your denial of benefits in which to appeal the decision. Sixty days may sound like a long time, but it runs extremely quickly. If you have received a denial, the time to appeal is as soon as possible.  If you have questions about your social security disability claim, then call an experienced Birmingham Disability attorney Contact Powell and Denny
