If you were denied, the most important thing you should know is that you shouldn’t give up!

It’s incredibly frustrating when you can’t work due to your physical or mental conditions and your claim for disability benefits is denied. Appealing a denial can be a long and time-consuming process, but winning your claim on appeal is possible.

If you received a denial letter, you only have 60 days to appeal from the date you received it.

If you were denied, call the Social Security appeals lawyers at Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer right away.

You Earned These Benefits

Receiving a denial letter doesn’t mean your case is over. Our lawyers know the process and we’ll file an appeal to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) on your behalf.

If an ALJ denies your claim, we can appeal to the Appeals Council. Even if the Appeals Council denies your claim, it’s possible to appeal your case in Federal Court.

Contact our Springfield-Decatur, Champaign-Urbana or Danville office today to discuss your Social Security Disability case. We’re Just One Call Away.
