When you or a family member receive a denial of adult child Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits, it can be devastating. You were counting on those benefits to fill the gap left when the working, supporting parent cannot help like they did in the past.
But don’t give up hope!
Most people get denied when they first apply for adult child SSDI. At Nash Disability Law, we strongly urge you to consider appealing the decision to the Social Security Administration. Appeals are when many people win benefits.
At this stage in the process, it can make a big difference to have a disability attorney who builds the strongest case for you. And it doesn’t cost anything to try. We evaluate your case for free. We don’t charge a fee unless you win.
As part of your appeal, you may need to see a judge. We will prepare you ahead of time so we can go into your hearing together with confidence.
Social Security Disability law is a separate system from other kinds of law. It has its own rules, procedures and judges.
Unlike some law firms that practice many types of law, Nash Disability Law focuses entirely on Social Security Disability cases. We do this to give you the best chance of winning benefits.
The first thing to know about appealing your adult child SSDI denial is that you need to move fast.
Important! Social Security has a strict deadline to appeal.
Disabled adult child cases have a special challenge: You have to show you had a medical condition leaving you unable to work before age 22. But if you’re several years older it can be hard to track down the evidence that supports your particular limitations.
The Social Security Administration could turn down your adult child SSDI benefits for that reason, or many others:
Experienced lawyers like those at Nash Disability Law can address all of these problems and many more that might come up as you appeal for adult child SSDI benefits.
Social Security has four levels of appeal for your adult child SSDI case:
The experts the government brings in to testify could hurt your chances of winning benefits. But an attorney from Nash Disability Law will be at your side all the way, defending you and questioning them.
Social Security’s own statistics show that people are more successful winning benefits when they have a lawyer. Get one who knows how the system works in the Chicago area.
