Denied. Now What?
The links and information were compiled in April, 2014, and will not be routinely updated, so please be sure to check the government websites linked for the most up-to-date information. If you find any changes or dead links, please feel free to report them using the Contact Form.
Please keep in mind that 60-70% of initial Social Security claims are rejected, and the process of obtaining benefits is likely to be a long journey. Once the Disability Determination Services deny your initial claim, you will have the option to appeal the decision.
Some important and useful websites you should be aware of (many of them will be repeated throughout the pages):
- Social Security Administration
- Social Security Disability Advocates
- Healthcare.Gov (Affordable Care Act / Obamacare Website)
- Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
- Social Security Office Locator
