Appealing Your Social Security Disability Denial

Should you appeal your Social Security Disability decision?

Many people who are disabled make the decision to apply for Social Security Disability benefits, only to have their claims denied. If you're one of them, you may be wondering if you should appeal the decision.

Here are a few guidelines that may help you decide whether you should appeal:

  • If you are currently working, it is very difficult to qualify for disability. The reasoning is that if you're able to work at all, why should you be approved for Social Security Disability benefits?
  • If your disability is only temporary (less than one year), then you most likely won't qualify for disability.
  • In order to qualify for disability, your impairment must be severe enough to prevent you from working at almost any job in order to qualify. This is especially true if you're under 50 years of age.
If you believe you have a strong disability claim, then you should consult an attorney who specializes in helping people get their Social Security Disability benefits. He/she can help you decide whether your case is strong enough to appeal the denial.

Choose your attorney with care! It's very difficult getting approved for disability without the help of competent and experienced legal help.
