Social Security Disability Benefits Denied? Our Atlanta Attorneys Can Help

Social Security is essential to many Americans. The Social Security Administration (SSA) reported that over 69 million people received benefits in 2019. Nearly 90% of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) received payments because of blindness or other disability. 

 

The unfortunate truth is that the Social Security system can be complicated, and benefits are often difficult to obtain. An estimated 60% of first-time Social Security Disability applicants receive rejections, even though they qualify for payments.

 

Being denied Social Security Disability Income (SSDDI) can be devastating for injured or disabled workers. On top of financial stress and physical pain, you may find the application process is a never-ending nightmare of paperwork and bureaucratic obstacles.

Working with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney in Atlanta can increase your chances of being approved. Call Farah & Farah today at (470) 410-5838 to schedule a free, no-obligation case review.

Details About SSD Eligibility in Georgia

There are specific criteria used to determine your eligibility for SSDI benefits. Your attorney will work with you to demonstrate your status. These include:

 

Disability status: You must have a medically diagnosed condition that prevents you from working. The condition must have been present, or be estimated to be present, for at least 12 months.


Earnings: The condition must prevent you from doing the kind of work you did before the injury or disability and prevent you from starting a new line of work. 

Past work experience: You may need to demonstrate that you have worked consistently for 5–10 years and paid Social Security taxes.

What To Do if Your SSD Claim is Denied

If your SSD application is denied, the response typically includes the following information:

A denial of benefits does not mean you will never be approved. There may be many reasons your application was denied, such as a lack of medical evidence or an incomplete employment record.
