Home / Blog / Three Options After Social Security Disability Denial

If you’ve been disabled, you might think that Social Security Disability (SSD) is a given. After all, you’re unable to work due to your injury. Why wouldn’t you qualify? That’s an assumption thousands of people every year make when applying for SSD benefits, and more than two-thirds of them are denied.

So what do you do next? Well, you have three choices.

  1. Accept the denial. These folks either aren’t aware of the appeal process or do not feel like their appeal will be any different than their initial application.
  2. Appeal the denial on their own. The unfortunate reality is that appealed SSD applications often contain the same errors or omissions from the initial application, resulting in another denial.
  3. Appeal with a lawyer. Folks who decide that an experienced lawyer is best equipped to handle their appeal more often secure benefits. Social Security Disability firms, like Norris Injury Lawyers, have years of experience turning SSD denials into benefit packages for their clients. We know the system and how to help.
