Don’t be discouraged if the Social Security Administration (SSA) denied your disability claim. Most disability claims are initially denied. In order to win, you can hire an experienced Utah Social Security disability attorney to help you appeal the claim. Most applicants have to appeal their claim several times, but you have the right to ask SSA to take another look at your application. Look at the notice the SSA sent you. This notice should explain how and when to appeal their decision. Usually, you only have a limited amount of time to appeal your case after a denial.
If you disagree with SSA’s decision and would like to appeal your claim, glance over this post. This blog post lays out some tips that can increase your chances of winning disability appeals and be awarded Social Security Disability Insurance and benefits.

- Submit the most recent updates of your medical records each time you apply and appeal.
- Work with the disability claims examiner in charge of your case. Respond quickly to their letters, instructions, or questions. Cooperating with your examiner can influence a positive outcome.
- Make sure you keep track of important deadlines.
