hire an attorney to handle your appealApplying for SSDI can be a very confusing process. All of the information requirements must be met, or your chances of getting denied increase.

Some things the board will want to know is if the applicant:

  • has recently been employed and has been paying FICA
  • is still working
  • is gainfully employed ($1220+)

If you have applied for disability and received a denial letter SSA-L443 , it is important that you are proactive right away. The fact is that many applications are denied. Appealing the denial should be done within 60 days of receiving it.

In Florida, only about 27 percent of all disability applications are approved. About 9 % of appeals are approved. So it is important you do it correctly from the start. You will want a professional on your side.

If Your Appeal is Denied

If your appeal is denied then the next step you and your attorney will take is to request an appearance before a administrative law judge. You will need to do this within 60 days of the denial.

It is important to remember two things:

  1. A denial is not the end of the road.
  2. An attorney can significantly increase your chances of success.
