What To Do After A Denial Of Social Security Disability

When residents of Michigan file for Social Security Disability benefits, they do so because they can no longer work and provide for their families. Often, especially for those over 50 who feel that the ability to work is no longer an option, SSD is a last resort.

At Willis Law, our attorneys understand the defeat that our clients feel when they receive denial letters concerning their applications for SSD benefits, and we will not only provide the emotional support they need during this difficult time, but also we will help them fight for the benefits to which they are entitled.

The Keys To Appealing An SSD Denial

If you have received an SSD denial, it is crucial that you follow the correct procedure when appealing the decision. Our attorneys will first examine the information you submitted in your original application to ensure that you have a case solid enough to warrant an appeal. If we determine that an appeal is in your best interest, we will file your appeal on your behalf.

In order to file a successful appeal, we will need to have copies of all of your medical records related to the diagnosis and treatment of your disability. We will also need statements from your doctors explaining your inability to work. Armed with this information, we can then present evidence to the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review that clearly demonstrates your inability to continue working.
