Lessen Your Chances of Being Denied Benefits
The first two steps of the Social Security Disability process have extremely high rates of denial. Initial claims are denied approximately 65% of the time, and those who choose to take the first appeal step, reconsideration, they can expect an 85% denial rate. For these reasons and more, we strongly advise anyone applying for disability benefits or
SSI benefits to use the services of an experienced attorney from Disability Action Advocates.
Our firm specializes in helping individuals fight for their rightful benefits. We have been handling these cases for nearly two decades and have helped thousands and thousands of individuals with disabilities during that time. Our professional legal team can guide you smoothly through the complex process of application, appeals and hearings. To make the process more efficient, we recommend that you enlist our services from the outset of your case. For those of you who are already mired in the government process, we can help there also.
Benefits of Hiring a Qualified Lawyer
Why are there extremely high denial rates for disability claims? The reasons for why claims are denied vary, but it is true that many more people today are applying for benefits than have in the past and the number of staff servicing those claims has not risen proportionately. There is also some controversy over the wide variation in denial rates between some hearing judges. This seems to indicate there is no real standard or guideline used in determining eligibility.
When you know all of this, it is easy to see why it is worth it to have an experienced legal representative fighting for your rights. Here at DAA, we know the system and we know it well.
