We’ll Deal with the Social Security Administration for You

After all, you have probably lost a portion of your paycheck throughout your life to Social Security taxes. You should be understandably frustrated if you have recently learned that the Social Security Administration (SSA) has denied your claim to benefits.

Rather than filing an appeal on your own and appearing before the SSA administrative law judge alone, let the Monroe Social Security Disability lawyers at Parker Alexander fight to get you the Social Security Disability benefits you deserve. Did you receive a letter informing you that your Social Security Disability claim has been denied? If so, you should contact our experienced attorneys about representing you in your appeal Letting us represent you means you can continue to focus on your health and family while your case still progresses!

Let’s talk about your options after a Social Security Disability claim denial. Dial (318) 625-6262.

Winning Attorneys by Your Side

Once you get our Monroe Social Security Disability attorneys on the case, our top priorities are making certain you feel confident and comfortable with your case and securing all of the benefits you rightfully deserve. What does a successful SSD case or appeal look like, though?

If we win your case, you could receive SSA benefits that include:

  • Lump-sum check: When a client is in a rough financial spot due to not being paid SSD benefits, it can be beneficial to receive a lump-sum check paid to them all at once; or
  • Monthly payments: Routine payments can make it easier to plan your finances.

Most importantly, it is crucial not to delay the start of your appeal. If you wait too long, your window to challenge the denial could close and you will need to start from the beginning, costing more resources and time. You typically only have 60 days from receipt of the denial letter to file your appeal.

Using Your Medical Records

To be successful in a Social Security Disability claim, there must be medical evidence of a severe physical or mental impairment that has existed or is likely to exist for at least 12 months. As mentioned, you likely have just 60 days to file an appeal to challenge the denial. This limited window of opportunity is problematic because getting medical records can take weeks in some cases.

If you are within 45 days of your appeal deadline, then we cannot stress enough the importance of contacting our attorneys right now. We need to act fast in order to make sure the appeal is filed properly and on time, and that you have the medical evidence and employment-related information you need for your appeal. Losing too much more time will greatly increase the risk of not receiving all the evidence of your disability before we need to review your case and file your appeal.

Costs, Attorney Fees & Getting Started

Attorney fees for such cases are set by the Social Security Administration. They consist of 25% of past-due benefits awarded or $6,000, whichever is less. Attorney fees do not come out of your pocket but instead come out of any successful appeal recovery. This method allows you to explore your options and pursue your denied benefits without putting a monetary risk on you when you are already feeling financial stress due to the denial.
