How to Prevent an Unfair Denial of Social Security Disability Benefits in Lincoln, Nebraska

It is one thing to have a Social Security disability claim denied for valid reasons. If you don’t qualify then you shouldn’t receive benefits. However, it is quite another thing to suffer a denial of Social Security disability benefits when you do qualify. When your claim is denied you will have two choices: you can either appeal the denial and likely wait months for the Social Security Administration to make a determination or you can forget the whole thing and forgo the benefits to which you are legally entitled.

We Have a Better Solution

That solution is to prevent the unfair denial of your Social Security disability benefits in the first place. You can do this by:

  • Having complete medical records. You need the right evidence to present to the Social Security Administration to prove that you are disabled according to its definition of the term.
  • Gathering all of the information you need. You will need to supply personal information such as your daily activities and symptoms—as well as employment history as part of the application.
  • Filling out the application completely and accurately. Even a little mistake can result in your application being denied.

These steps may seem simple. However, approximately two-thirds of initial Social Security disability claims are denied.

Don’t Let This Happen to You

It can be intimidating to be at home in Lincoln, Nebraska, and think that just one little mistake could result in a Social Security Administration employee denying your claim. It doesn’t have to happen, though. You can get it right the first time.
