Lawyers.com Answers: What do I do if my SSDI claim is denied?

There is an appeals process to show why you deserve disability benefits. In most states, the first step in your appeal is to request a reconsideration. A new Social Security Administration claims examiner will review your application. With the right evidence, documentation and legal guidance, the appeals process often results in a benefits award. A disability attorney in your area can address specific questions about your SSD appeal.
