Social Security Disability Advice from Rob Levine & Associates
“I already tried to file on my own, but I was turned down.” It’s one of the most common things we hear from people contacting us for help with their Social Security disability claim. Social Security claimants routinely receive denials at the early levels of their claim. And when they receive a denial, many of them give up and go away.
At Rob Levine and Associates, we don’t let the denials stop us. We appeal those decisions until we have an opportunity to present your case at a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. Most cases are approved at the levels leading up and through the hearing level.
Why does Social Security deny so many people at the early levels? It saves money. Every time a legitimately disabled claimant accepts the determination that they do not meet the criteria for disability, it saves money. Don’t make the mistake of believing that you don’t qualify for Social Security disability benefits just because you receive a denial of your application.
The 57 year-old woman on the telephone worried that she was wasting our time discussing her Social Security case. She had filed a claim on her own last year and was advised in her denial letter that she was capable of work. She explained that her husband was encouraging her to call because he knew she could no longer work, but she didn’t think there was anything we could do because she had given Social Security a copy of all of her medical records.
We agreed to represent her and filed a new application for her. Within three months, a check arrived and our client was approved for benefits.
