Denied Social Security Disability Benefits claim

First of all, if you’ve been denied social security disability benefits, you are not alone.  In fact, most claims are denied (again and again and again before they are successful). In short, the answer to the “denial, what’s next?” question is “appeal.”

The social security disability attorneys at the Law Offices of d’Oliveira & Associates are highly skilled and experienced in social security disability cases.We have helped hundreds of people just like you. If you have any questions or concerns, call us at 1-800-992-6878. We answer 24/7, for your convenience.

Again, if your social security disability claim has been denied, you are not alone. Denial is commonplace and many successful claims were denied up to three times before approval. Nationwide, about 70% of all claims are denied at the first level. Don’t give up.

  • It is important to note that denial does not mean that your case is without merit or that you are not legally disabled. Denial just means that you will have to jump through another legal hoop.
  • Appeal and appeal in a timely manner. You have only 60 days to appeal your case from the date of the denial. This deadline is strictly enforced.  However, you may be able to obtain a waiver of the time limit if you can show that neither you nor your attorney received notification of the denial.
  • Call our offices as soon as possible so we can investigate your case, represent your best interests, file all legally required paperwork, and represent you before the social security administration and the administrative law judge if a hearing is necessary. We are only paid if we get money for you. You will have absolutely no out of pocket legal fees or expenses for our legal representation.
  • Your best chance of being awarded disability benefits is to appeal your case all the way to an administrative law judge. This judge is a special judge who only hears social security cases. The highest percentage of cases that are successful are, in fact, successful at this level.
