Should I Appeal My Social Security Disability Denial?
 by: Gerald G. Lutkenhaus

YOU APPLIED FOR SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY AND YOUR CLAIM WAS DENIED AND YOU WONDER IF YOU SHOULD APPEAL?

The answer is if you are working you usually cannot obtain disabilty especially if you make more than $800.00 per month. Also, if your disabilty is temporary less than 12 months in duration then you cannot obtain disabilty. You also have to have a severe impairment in order to qualify. The impairment would be such that it prevents you from working. If you are under age 50, then it is difficult to obtain disability if you retain the capacity to any form of light work. If you are over 50 but yet 55, it can also be difficult to obtain disability if you can still do light work.

WHEN SHOULD I TALK TO AN ATTORNEY ABOUT MY CASE?

If you feel you have a meritorious case, then you should call an attorney who specializes in Social Security Disability. He will screen your case and will advise you if it is worthwhile to continue to appeal.
