Most Social Security disability claims are denied at first
The Social Security Administration sends your disability application to a local Washington State agency that makes initial decisions on disability claims. Unfortunately, your claim is likely to be denied because approximately two-thirds of initial Social Security disability applications are denied.
After this denial you can ask for a reconsideration of your claim. However, only 15% of claimants are awarded Social Security disability benefits after reconsideration.
The important part is to persevere to the next step and appeal the denial because you will have a significantly better chance of success on the appeal of your Social Security disability claim. Over half of Social Security disability claimants who appeal are ultimately awarded disability benefits.
Should I have a Social Security disability lawyer?
Statistics demonstrate that Social Security claimants who are represented by a Social Security disability lawyer at the hearing level are more likely to be awarded disability benefits than claimants who are not represented.
