Tim from El Cajon, California asks “I applied for Social Security Disability in San Diego, CA and was denied. Can I apply again?”
If your application for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is denied, the correct thing to do is file an appeal. Over 70% of disability applications are denied and it is very common for a person to give up when he/she has been denied. Don’t give up, be persistent and follow your disability claim all the way through the appeals process. A disability hearing is where you will have your best chance to win your claim.
If you hire a disability attorney, the chances of you winning your disability claim are much higher than if you try and win your case on your own. Experienced disability attorneys and non-attorney reps have great knowledge of what it takes to win a disability claim.
If you are denied disability benefits by an administrative law judge at a disability hearing, then you may want to consider reapplying for disability especially if your condition gets worse.
