Denied Social Security Benefits? Work with an Experienced Spring Hill Social Security Lawyer to Appeal


Committed to helping you get the benefits you need

Social Security disability benefits offer the financial support you need when you are unable to work due to a serious injury or long-term health condition. So long as you worked at a job where you paid into Social Security for a certain amount of time, you are eligible for benefits. You must then show proof of your disability and how it undermines your ability to work.

Though the requirements for Social Security disability benefits seem relatively straight forward, the majority of applications are initially rejected. In fact, national statistics show that about 65 percent of applications are initially rejected, as are about 85 percent of reconsideration appeals. There are many reasons for this, including paperwork errors and insufficient documentation. By working with a Spring Hill Social Security lawyer at Carlson, Meissner, Hart and Hayslett, P.A. you can significantly improve your chances of getting the benefits you need on appeal.

Why your Social Security disability application may be denied

It is notoriously difficult to get approved for Social Security disability benefits. In Florida, the rate of denial for Social Security disability benefits is even higher than the national average. Reports estimate that only about 27 percent of all applications are approved — at any stage of the application or appeals process. Only about 9 percent are approved on the initial application.

When you apply for Social Security disability benefits, you have to supply a lot of information — about your work history, about your income, and about your injury or illness. You have to include medical records, statements from your doctor, past pay stubs or income tax returns, education records, and much more.

If you make any mistake in filling out the paperwork, your application can be denied. If you don’t include the right information, your application can be denied. If you don’t have sufficient evidence to show that you injury or illness causes you to be unable to work, your application can be denied.
