Denied SSD benefits? 3 tips for a strong appeal

Those who apply for Social Security Disability benefits should not lose heart if they receive a denial. This denial can be appealed and it is not uncommon for an appeal to result in an approval of benefits.

If you are considering moving forward with an appeal, the following tips can help you to better ensure success:

  • Fill out the appeal form accurately and completely. The United States Social Security Administration (SSA) provides a form that generally needs to be completed in order to move forward with an appeal. Make sure that all the information is filled in. Double check that your name, social security number and contact information are all correct. Include the date of the denial decision as well as the representative's information.
  • Gather all the information you need. The SSA also recommends making sure that everything is included in the appeal. Examples provided include a list of all the physicians, hospitals and medical treatments you have received as well as any medicines you are taking. It is also recommended to include an explanation of any changes to your medical condition as well as changes in your daily activities and work abilities.
  • Include supporting documents. In addition to providing the information noted above, also provide supporting documents. This includes medical reports or written statements pertaining to the disability.

These steps can help improve your chances of a successful appeal. However, it is important to note that this is often the last step available to get these benefits. As a result, it is often wise to seek the counsel of an experienced Social Security benefits attorney. This legal professional can help guide you through the process, better ensuring a more favorable outcome.
