SSD Application Denial Rates
Las Vegas Social Security Disability Appeals Attorneys
The following are recent averages both nationwide and in the state of Nevada for
Social Security Disability and
supplemental security income claim denials. They represent denials at the initial
application process and at reconsideration:
- Nationwide: at application-64%; at reconsideration-86.2%
- Nevada: at application-57.3%; at reconsideration-77.4%
In our Las Vegas Social Security Disability lawyer and representatives'
experience, we have found that those individuals who win their cases early
in the process and in Nevada that represents 32.4% of claim filers, were
able to present to the
Social Security Administration fully completed files showing that they met the SSA listing of impairments
or were disabled under GRID rules. That is why it is so important to have
a lawyer by your side as early in the process as possible. If you have
submitted an incomplete file to the SSA, they will finish it for you and
you can be sure that your chances of winning at the early stages of the
process will be significantly lessened.
While the numbers may look somewhat bleak, every case is different and
those that are committed to winning their cases and becoming knowledgeable
about the law, or hiring an representative to represent them, will have
a much better chance at being awarded the benefits that are rightfully theirs.
