Denied Social Security Benefits?

Finding out that your legitimate claim for Social Security benefits has been denied can be frustrating and disheartening when you are relying on those benefits to make ends meet after a serious illness, injury or disability.

At Disability Consultants, Inc., serving clients in Des Moines, Iowa, and Omaha, Nebraska, as well as the surrounding area, we help ill, injured and disabled individuals pursue Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits after initial claim denials.

Why Do Claims Get Denied?

There are countless reasons why the Social Security Administration may choose not to accept a claim right away. Often, claims are denied when they haven't been developed or presented thoroughly and properly. This is why working with an experienced lawyer is so important. Attorney Gregory W. Peterson has helped hundreds of people secure disability benefits after initial denials.

Don't Give Up!

Just because the Social Security Administration denied your application doesn't mean you don't have a case. Often, even applicants who have airtight cases get denied when they first apply. You need to appeal quickly and effectively, and a practiced Social Security attorney can guide you through the process.
