SSDI/SSI Appeals

Initially, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies a majority of the applications it receives for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. While it is easy to get frustrated with the SSA, it is important that you do not give up. Perseverance can pay off, and so can having an experienced Social Security law attorney fighting for you through the appeals process.
