If you are denied SSI or SSDI benefits, which are pretty standard, there are a few things that you do not want to do but often are common mistakes. First, just because you were denied benefits, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t file an appeal. You absolutely should file an appeal as soon as possible and not doing so is always a mistake.
Most people are denied at first and most who appeal are approved since you will also file a request for a disability hearing in from of an administrative law judge. If your case is properly prepared, you stand a good chance of approval. You stand an even better chance of approval when you retain the services of an experienced Social Security lawyer who will advocate the process for you.
The second mistake is filing a new claim after a denial instead of filing an appeal. This is a common mistake and a costly one too. Almost always, the case will again be denied and the cost is a lot of wasted time. Without the help of an experienced lawyer, it is easy to get lost and confused throughout the complex Social Security process. The wording is sometimes hard to grasp for many.
Another common mistake is missing your appeal deadline and this happens a lot. There are many reasons that this happens and of course, a skilled Los Angeles social security lawyer would never allow this to happen. Missing an appeal deadline will require having to start over with a new claim and this can cost months of your time.
