Should I Wait For a Denial?
It can take some time to be approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) benefits. In this time, there can be a number of setbacks along the way. It is not uncommon for the Social Security Administration (SSA) to deny an applicant's initial application. It is estimated that approximately two-thirds of all applications for SSDI benefits are denied in the initial stages.
Many applicants question whether it is a good idea to have a disability lawyer to help fill out the initial application. In fact, many disability lawyers will not take a case until an initial application has been denied. At the law firm of Tim and Sean Cuddigan, based in Omaha and serving people across eastern Nebraska, we do not believe it is a good idea to wait for a denial. You may be able to recover benefits more quickly with an attorney helping to process your claim. In many cases, the SSA denies claims because it does not get a complete picture of the medical condition, or conditions, that prevent you from working.
We will help gather your full medical records and present these records to the SSA. The sooner you hire our law firm, the sooner you will have someone who understands the law and the legal process, effectively presenting your claim for benefits. Since 1994, attorney Tim Cuddigan has concentrated all of his efforts on disability claims. He has helped thousands of people in this time, and can help you as well.
