The Social Security Administration (SSA) deducts money from every paycheck you earn. That money is supposed to be paid back when you retire or if you become disabled and can no longer work. Around 60 million Americans receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, but many of those recipients had their initial claims denied.
The SSA denies claims for a variety of reasons, including lack of evidence that an applicant is disabled and can’t work or the belief that the applicant’s condition will improve and that they will be able to return to work soon.
It’s difficult to successfully file or appeal an SSD benefits claim on your own. At Ponce Law, our Nashville Social Security Disability lawyers help people like you by:
- Taking care of technicalities that can jeopardize your application or appeal – To prevent abuse or false claims, the SSA puts a heavy burden of proof on applicants and people who appeal their decisions. Unfortunately, the extra red tape means that valid claims fall through the cracks and get rejected. We’ll make sure the SSA gets all the evidence and paperwork it needs on time.
- Streamlining the application or appeal process – Our legal team has handled many SSD benefits applications and appeals over the years, and we know how to get the results our clients want in as little time as possible. We know you need benefits right away, and we know how to get your claim in the hands of people who can help.
