Appealing Denied Social Security Disability Claims

When you’re already in a position that leaves you unable to work, trying to get your Social Security benefits on your own can lead to additional stress for you and your family. Although there are certain laws that entitle you to these benefits when you are dealing with particular mental or physical conditions, this does not mean that Social Security is easy to deal with. In fact, because of the complex legal procedures involved with applying for benefits, approximately 65% of claims are rejected on the first attempt.

At Cornell Injury Law, we help people like yourself apply for an appeal to the denial of benefits. We represent individuals and families all over southeast Iowa, including Burlington, Fairfield, Washington, Ottumwa, and Mt. Pleasant, helping to secure Social Security benefits.

Our firm is here to help you get through this stressful time. Call or Text Us today to learn more about the CIL difference.

Eligibility for Social Security Disability

There are many different physical and mental disabilities that are covered under Social Security Disability. It is important to understand not only the criteria of eligibility but the type of proof and evidence which will be required by Social Security to gain benefits. Typically, SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) benefits are given to people who have worked at least 5 out of the past 10 years and have an impairment that keeps them from working and is expected to last for a year or more.

A few examples of disabilities that are covered include:

  • Mental impairments
  • Neurological conditions
  • Muscle problems
  • Bone disease
  • Back disorders
  • Hearing impairment
  • Vision impairment

Fighting for Your Social Security Disability

At Cornell Injury Law, we understand that applying for benefits can be a difficult process, especially if you are unable to earn any type of income. It can often take quite a bit of time for Social Security to make a decision, leaving you with the possibility of a claim being denied after waiting so long. Whether your claim has already been denied and you are feeling like giving up, or you are applying for benefits for the first time, we can help.
