Dealing With A Denied Disability Claim

Cutter Hall Karlock, LLC May 18, 2019

People file for Social Security Disability as a result of various physical and mental hardships which have disrupted their lives, whether they resulted from workplace accidents or were caused by some other factor. Unfortunately, these disabilities can leave people with a wide-ranging list of challenges, such as those which are financial in nature (losing the ability to pay rent or take care of bills) or emotional (experiencing unbearable anxiety or running into marital problems due to stressors). Many people apply for SSD with the hope that these benefits will turn their lives around. Unfortunately, a lot of applicants are denied, and it is critical to handle a denied claim properly.

SSD claims are denied for many different reasons and every single applicant is in a unique position. Some people can prevent their claim from being denied by taking the correct approach to a difficult application process, but for many, it is already too late. However, there may be other options available to those whose claim has been rejected. For example, some people have been able to successfully file an appeal and gain access to the benefits that they deserve. If you decide to file an appeal, it is especially important to prepare and do everything you can to increase your chances of success.

When a disability claim is denied, some people feel like giving up and develop unbearable anxiety. It is very important to manage your emotions if you are dealing with a denied claim and stay focused on your options.
