Were You Denied Social Security Disability Benefits?

Most applications for Social Security disability benefits are denied. Social Security Claims are denied even if you have a good case. In fact, over 60 percent of claims are denied at the initial stage. This could be for a variety of reasons, and our attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm would be happy to offer you a free consultation regarding your Social Security Disability claim.

If you received a denial letter from the Social Security Administration, you or your Denver, Colorado SSD attorney have 60 days to appeal the decision. When your lawyer appeals the decision, your Colorado attorney will request a disability hearing. The hearing is held by a Federal Administrative Law Judge.

… Colorado is one of 10 States that it is easier to get a hearing. If a claim is denied in Colorado, you or your attorney can immediately request a hearing. In most other States other than Colorado, you must request a reconsideration appeal, which will take more time to get your Social Security Benefits.

Statistics show that your chances of winning your Social Security case dramatically increase if you are represented by a Colorado attorney at the hearing. If you were denied Social Security disability benefits and have a question about your denial, please contact the Denver, Colorado attorneys at The Sawaya Law Firm. We will be happy to help you with this issue.
