In the End, an Appeal is the Best Solution for a Massachusetts Disability Denial

There is no greater frustration than suffering a disability and being denied by the Social Security Administration disability program when you desperately need help to keep a roof over your head and food on the table.

This is exactly the situation a 54-year-old Arizona woman is facing. Gayle DeVilbis was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2007. She was denied SSA disability. Then it was discovered that her actual health issue was Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a serious cancer.

She became very ill from the chemotherapy, was put on oxygen and remains unable to work. She applied again for disability and was again denied because the "regimen of treatment" for her impairment was not expected to last 12 months.

In the end, Ms. DeVilbis made the local news when she uploaded a You Tube video for President Barrack Obama in which she tells him, "I just don't understand what [diagnosis] you have to get to get Social Security disability . . . "

While making a video for the President of the United States is a strong gesture and helps publicize the plight of the disabled, one hopes DeVilbis will also appeal the SSA decision.

Because at least 60% of disability claims are initially denied, it makes sense to take the next step and ask for a review. Keefe Disability Law works to help every Massachusetts client who has been denied benefits get a second chance. Please take the time to call us toll free at 888-904-6847 for a free case review.
