    How the Appeals Process Gives You Another Chance

    A lot of people give up when they’re denied for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

    You deserve better.

    You worked hard and paid Social Security taxes. You got an illness or injury. You had to stop working, so you’re running out of money.

    Social Security Disability would provide reassurance and greater well-being through monthly income and Medicare health coverage. Still, they turned you down.

    It might seem hopeless, but you need to know: This is what happens to most people. About 79% of initial applications for disability benefits have been denied in recent years.

    You can get another chance. In fact, appealing a denial may be your best chance of winning benefits. The Tulsa disability lawyers at Troutman & Troutman are here to help you through it:

    How Our Tulsa Disability Lawyers Help when You’re Appealing a Disability Denial

    Appealing a Social Security Disability denial is more complicated than the process of applying in the first place.

    It becomes much more like a legal case, addressing finer points of the law, presenting new evidence, going to hearings before judges, giving testimony and more.

    When you’re appealing your denial of disability benefits, the Tulsa disability attorneys at Troutman & Troutman take care of all of this for you, and more:

    • Analyzing why you were denied
    • Identifying mistakes by Social Security
    • Keeping you on top of deadlines for filing appeals forms
    • Updating your Social Security file with new medical records
    • Building legal arguments before your disability hearing
    • Preparing you to testify to an administrative law judge
    • Supporting you during your hearing
    • Questioning vocational or medical experts who testify
    • Appealing your case to higher levels if the judge denies you
    • Taking your case to the final step—federal court—if needed

    It can make a real difference to have a lawyer when you’re appealing a denial of disability benefits.

    A U.S. Government Accountability Office report found that people who had representatives like attorneys with them in their disability hearings had their benefits approved almost three times more often than people who went alone.

    They put a lot of hurdles between you and the more secure life you can have with disability benefits.

    Troutman & Troutman’s Oklahoma disability lawyers have made it their life’s work to lift up you and your family during difficult times.
