Tennessee SSI Attorneys Experienced with Claim Denials and Appeals
When people in the United States are unable to work because of injury or illness, we have government systems in place to help pay basic living expenses. Unfortunately, though, Social Security disability benefits can be difficult to get because of a system that is imperfect and overburdened.
A high percentage of Social Security disability applications are initially denied — including those from people with severe illnesses and crippling injuries. If you have received a claim denial letter, you are far from alone. Please contact me, Henderson Social Security disability attorney Lloyd Tatum, to talk about the appeal process and what I may be able to do for you.
Dealing With Disability Claim Denials Under Both Major Federal Programs
Serving all kinds of people in Chester, Madison, Hardin and Decatur counties, my experience extends to appeals of denied claims for both major types of benefits:
- Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) — for people who have worked and paid into the system before becoming disabled
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI) — which is not dependent on work history, but only available to support adults and children with very limited assets or income
You Will Pay No Fees Unless I Can Win You Benefits on Appeal
It is important not to give up after a claim denial, and to recognize that getting help from a lawyer may be essential to your cause. Attorney compensation in such cases is set by law. If we win your case, my fee will be limited to a percentage of your back-due benefits.
I know from many years' experience how the Social Security Administration (SSA) operates and makes decisions. I can explain the process clearly — from application through reconsideration and a hearing before a judge. To build your case for success, it may be essential to collect better medical evidence of your physical or mental disability — and I have done this numerous times.
