SSD Benefits Denied in Florida | Social Security Disability Appeal
logo

Q: I was denied Florida Social Security Disability benefits. Is there a way to appeal?

A: Yes, and it’s a good idea to do so. Of all the claims sent to the Social Security Administration for consideration, over 60% are denied. Many people who are rejected after the initial filing will stop trying-which saves the government a considerable amount of money.

Social Security Disability Appeal

If you appeal the decision, you actually have a greater chance of receiving benefits, since this will qualify you for a disability hearing. At the hearing, you have an opportunity to testify in person about your disability, and give the committee a chance to see the particulars of your case. This is much more effective than the initial filing stage, as reading about a disability on paper is never as moving as witnessing it firsthand.

It is even more effective if you have an experienced West Palm Beach social security disability lawyer on your side at the hearing, since the court may ask for your work history and medical records as further evidence of your disability. Most importantly, you only have 60 days from the date of denial to submit an appeal-so don’t wait!
