What Happens if You're Denied for Social Security Disability?

If you apply for Social Security disability benefits, there is a very good chance that you will be denied initially. If you are denied for your benefits, do not just give up -- these benefits may be the only source of income you have if you cannot work.

You should reach out to a Los Angeles Social Security disability appeals lawyer if you are denied benefits so you can get the help you need to fight for Social Security disability income. 

What Happens After Your Application for Social Security Disability Benefits is Denied?

If your application for Social Security disability benefits is denied, you will not receive benefits if you don't appeal. If you wanted to try again to receive benefits in the future, you would need to begin the process of applying for benefits all over again.

However, you do have the option to appeal the denial and this is generally the best approach to take. When you appeal, the first stage of appeals is a request for reconsideration. During this phase, a new disability claims examiner will review your claim and see if you can be approved based on this secondary review. 

If the request for reconsideration still doesn't result in you getting benefits, you can move on to additional phases of appeal including having a hearing before an administrative law judge.

A Los Angeles Social Security disability appeals attorney can guide you through the entirety of the appeals process and can help you to do everything possible to try to get approved for benefits.  Contact an attorney right away after a benefits denial, as you don't want to miss the deadline for appeals.
