Getting a denial letter for SSDI in New Hampshire can be an overwhelming and frightening experience. You may suddenly fear for where you will find the money you need to survive. In spite of being denied SSDI, it is important to keep in mind that you have options. In fact, most applicants are denied SSDI initially.

If you received an SSDI denial letter, it may help to know that you are not alone. Here are a few statistics about SSDI denials to help you get a better understanding of the application and appeal process, and why it is so critical to go through.

  • About 31 percent of applicants get a technical denial, which means that a technicality in their applications automatically denies them the ability to apply for benefits.
  • After the evaluation process is completed, over 60 percent of SSDI applications are denied.
  • Of these, 48 percent of people denied go on to appeal.
  • In the first step of the appeal process, the reconsideration step, 90 percent of applications are denied again.
  • Of these, 18 percent continue to appeal
  • After going through several hearings, 81 percent of applicants are approved for SSDI.

The Social Security Administration published these figures. By seeing these numbers, it becomes clear that appealing an SSDI denial is critical. Although many people are denied, in the end, 81 percent of those that continue on with the appeal are able to receive the benefits they need.

One of the best ways to ensure that you increase your opportunity to receive SSDI is to work closely with a New Hampshire Social Security disability lawyer. With help from a lawyer, you can have a better understanding of the complexities of the application process and the confidence that your application will be filled out in the best way possible.
