Denied Disability Claim? | Indianapolis, IN | Hensley Legal Group, PC

What Do I Do If My Indiana Disability Claim Is Denied?


If your Indiana disability claim has been denied, you need the assistance of an Indiana SSDI attorney to appeal your case. Although your claim may have been denied in error, the error can be corrected through an appeal.

Common Errors at the Social Security Administration

The Social Security Administration may inadvertently:

  • Fail to consider all of your impairments
  • Fail to gather all necessary medical evidence
  • Improperly evaluate your educational level
  • Improperly evaluate your pain

It’s common for most disability claims to be denied initially; however, the majority of applicants who appeal are granted benefits. If you are truly suffering from a mental or physical impairment that is hindering you from working full-time you should not hesitate to appeal your claim.

Appealing Your Indiana Disability Claim

You can appeal your claim online via the Social Security website or by calling the Social Security Administration at 800-772-1213 and making an appointment to appeal in person or by phone.

To preserve your legal rights, you should act quickly. After you have been denied, you will have 65 days, from the date on your rejection notice, to appeal. If you miss the deadline, you will have to re-start the whole process. Also, get proof. Always get proof of your filing. Paperwork can easily get lost. Without proof of your filing, you will have to re-start the process.

When you seek the help of an Indiana SSDI attorney, you can have peace of mind. Your appeal will be handled in a timely manner and all documents will be filed accurately and on time.
