Denied SSDI Benefits
In South Carolina, up to 60 percent of Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) claims are denied at the initial application. A denial does not, however, mean that you are ineligible for SSDI. Often, an experienced and strategic lawyer can help you with the reconsideration petition and get you the maximum benefits including back pay of benefits you qualify for.

How to Appeal Social Security Disability Denied Claims
There are several stages of the process of appealing denied Social Security disability claims:
Request for Reconsideration: If your claim has been denied, you must file a request for reconsideration within 60 days of the date on your denial letter. Therefore, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as you are denied.
The Hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, then we will request a hearing on your behalf. At the SSDI hearing, a hearing officer will listen to live testimony and make a decision about whether you should get SSDI benefits. Your lawyer will work closely with you to prepare you to tell your side of the story. We will also work with your doctors to submit all the necessary and relevant medical information.
Appeals Council: If the hearing officer denies your SSDI claim, we will discuss with you the option of appealing your case to the Social Security Appeals Council.
