Social Security Disability Appeals
If the Social Security Administration denied your disability application, you will need an attorney for your best chance of success upon appeal. At the initial application level, most applicants rely on medical personnel to provide the correct documentation to back up their claims, and sometimes they fall short. This is not your fault.
This is where Mary L. Collins will step in to represent denied applicants upon appeal. Those who qualify for Social Security Disability or SSI should not wait to appeal, as there are strict time limits. You have the right to appeal, and you have the right to an in-person hearing.
Many people who qualify for Social Security Disability or SSI may be eligible for government health insurance through Medicare or Medicaid to receive necessary medical care and treatment. You may apply for Medicaid through your local aids department.
