Social Security & Disability Benefits: When you work, part of your wages are paid into the social security system to pay retirement or disability benefits. Fifteen cents of every dollar you pay into social security is reserved for disability payments through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). You may think that because you have paid money into this insurance-based program, all you have to do to start receiving benefits when you need them is to file a claim. In fact, over one-half – indeed as many as two-thirds – of all social security applications submitted every year are denied.
Many people who have been denied benefits think that the process is over or that it would be pointless to keep pursuing the matter. Actually, there are several steps you can take if your application has been denied, and your chances of eventual success are much improved if you obtain assistance from an experienced social security disability attorney. First of all, you can submit a Request for Reconsideration and have your case heard before the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. If your claim is not approved at that stage, you may launch an appeal before the Appeals Council. From there, it is possible to appeal your case to the United States District Court for the District of Utah and from there to the United States Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. At Nelson, Taylor & Associates, we work to resolve your matter at the earliest possible stage, but we will pursue your case as far as we can to see that you get the benefits that you are entitled to.
