Few things are more devastating than suffering from a serious injury, medical or mental illness that leaves you unable to work? If you are unable to work for 12 months or more, you may qualify for benefits under the Social Security Disability program. If you think you might qualify, you should apply online or at a local Social Security office. The rules followed by the Social Security Administration are very specific. Generally, you must be unable to do any kind of work as a result of severe medical or mental impairment.
You should not be discouraged if you are not successful with your initial application. It is very common for Social Security to deny the initial application for benefits. If Social Security denies the initial application, you should request a reconsideration as soon as possible and definitely within 60 days of your denial. If Social Security upholds the denial of the claim after reconsideration, you should contact our law office as soon as possible so we can request a hearing before an administrative law judge on your behalf. You only have 60 days from the date of the denial of your request for reconsideration to request a hearing before an administrative judge. Therefore, it is important that you contact our office immediately upon receipt of the denial of your request for reconsideration
