Likewise, we can help individuals obtain approval after having their claim denied. Our experienced attorneys are here to provide the legal guidance and support you need for a successful outcome.

Social Security Attorney in Kingsport, TN

Initial Application for Disability Benefits

The Social Security Administration (SSA) only approves about one-third of all initial disability benefit applications. With 70% of first-time applicants being denied, it’s crucial to complete the application thoroughly and correctly.

Having your claim denied doesn’t necessarily mean you are ineligible or that the SSA is dismissing your disability. Often claims are rejected for administrative reasons or lacking support.

If you can show you are unable to work for at least 12 months or may die due to your condition, properly filling out the forms and including what’s needed will increase your odds of approval. Some of the most common reasons for denial include

  • Blank fields
  • Insufficient medical records
  • Missed deadlines
  • Typos

The Social Security disability attorneys at Miller Disability Law, P.C. can help ensure you fully understand the application process, requirements, and supporting documentation needed.

Disability Claim Appeal

Disability Claim Appeal Process

Initial claim denial is not the end of the road. The appeal process includes several steps, and we recommend you take them with an experienced disability attorney.

  • Request reconsideration
  • Hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ)
  • Review with the Appeals Council
  • Federal district court action

At any point during this process a claim can be approved, but if it continues to be denied Miller Disability Law, P.C. will not hesitate to take it to the U.S. District Court. Throughout the process, we will answer all your questions and concerns, and keep you informed every step of the way. We will advocate for you, and fight for your right to Social Security disability benefits.
