You should appeal a disability denial

Living with a disability, especially when it's new, can be a major adjustment. You may not longer be able to do the things you enjoy or be able to work in any substantial amount. You may be worried about how you're going to support yourself and your family, which is a fair concern.

When you initially applied for Social Security Disability, you included all the medical documentation you could find and did your best to fill out the application correctly. Unfortunately, your recently received a denial letter stating that information was missing and that your disability couldn't be confirmed. Now what?

Appealing is a good option after a disability denial

After you're denied disability, one of the better things to do is to talk to your attorney about appealing. Most people who apply for Social Security Disability to receive a rejection letter first, but they are often able to receive benefits after appeal. If you have received a denial, make sure you look closely at the reason that was given.

Your attorney will go over the denial with you and help you get more documentation to support your claim. They can help you file the appeal as well so that you are able to do so within the correct time frame and make sure that you don't have to start the entire process over again.
