What You Can Do Next

As stressed as you may feel at the moment, you are not alone in your denial, and it is important that you act quickly. Many claims are initially denied, and are followed by a small window of time to file an appeal. Upon your denial, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible in order to meet this deadline.

To begin the process of appealing, you will have to file a request for reconsideration, which is typically done within 60 days from your initial denial.

Appealing Is Worth It Even If There Are No Guarantees

While it may be tempting to give up seeking benefits, your illnesses or injuries are worth fighting for. When you file an appeal, you fight to keep your application in the system of the agency that denied you — the Disability Determination Services (DDS). Because the DDS is known for sending out initial denials, having them review your application a second time may work out in your favor. Our attorneys will help you prepare your appeal with strategy, keep you informed of all your options, and answer any questions you may have along the way.
