If you have received a denial of your Social Security Disability Benefits, you are not alone. The vast majority of people who apply for Social Security Disability Benefits are denied initially. Unfortunately, it seems to be part of the process.
If you have received a denial at the initial level, you need to request a reconsideration. If you have received a denial at the reconsideration level, you will need to request a hearing. You have 60 days from the date of the denial to request an appeal. You can request an appeal at your local Social Security Office.
As a Social Security Disability Attorney, I have seen many denials from DDS. You may have received a denial simply because the DDS examiner could not get all your medical records. Or it may be that your doctor was not consulted for his opinion about your condition. No matter the reason, now that you have received a denial, you must appeal.
Having an attorney working with you on your Social Security Disability case ensures that all of your medical evidence is put in your file and that your case is evaluated thoroughly by someone other than the Social Security Administration.
