Benefits of a Boston Social Security Disability Lawyer After a Denial

The majority of people who apply for Social Security disability are denied benefits after their first application is processed. Many of these people believe that once they are denied benefits for Social Security disability in Boston, there are no other options available to them. However, going through the appeals process can open up numerous new opportunities to receive benefits.

During the appeal process, you may be advised to submit what is called an on-the-record review. This puts your medical evidence, and other critical pieces in front of a judge so that they can overturn your denial, or uphold your denial.

This is understandably a difficult time for many applicants. You worry how another denial may affect your application, and you worry about the time it takes to have your on-the-record review processed.

Benefits of Representation by a Boston Social Security Lawyer After a Denial

Working with a lawyer can alleviate many of your concerns. Here are a few benefits of a Boston Social Security disability lawyer working with you on your on-the-record review:

  • Experience. A lawyer understands what the Social Security Administration is looking for and what your case examiner needs to see in order to approve or deny your application. Having an attorney’s help when writing your brief and information for the on-the-record review can be enormously beneficial.
  • Better Evidence. It is essential that you submit the right evidence to make it easy to approve your application in an on-the-record review. A lawyer knows how to obtain this evidence, and he can help you get more details and information than you may be able to on your own.
  • Peace of Mind. Peace of mind during this trying time is priceless. When you work with a lawyer, you get someone on your side who can answer questions about the process and verify that everything you’re going through is normal. Having this support network is invaluable.

Before you submit your on-the-record review, contact one of our Boston Social Security disability lawyers for help. We will guide you in the right direction and ensure that all of the moving pieces get put in the right place so that you maximize your chances at approval and minimize your risk of having to appear in court to defend your application.

I was denied Social Security disability, and like you said, I thought that was all, and that I didn't have any other options. I had no idea that you can appeal for your case, and hire an attorney to fight for you and your benefits. It is very reassuring knowing that these lawyers are experienced and know what I need to do to get approved. Just filling out the paper for the benefits made me confused, and I didn't understand all of the terms they were using. Lucky for me a lawyer knows the vocabulary for Social Security disabilities, and knows how to use it to his advantage.
