Social Security Advocate Lawyer Tampa, Florida
In America, the government has established the Social Security program to help all people who need extra financial assistance and cannot obtain it through working get the funds that they need to have proper and fulfilling lives. When applying for such benefits from the Social Security, the new applicants are hopeful that they or the ones they are filing the application for will receive the funds that they need and are looking for. Unfortunately, this does not always go as intended and the application is denied, for any number of reasons. When this happens, it is time to start the appeal process and having a strong Social Security advocate on one’s side drastically increases the chances of victory.
If a Social Security application is denied, the applicant has a certain amount of time to appeal and overturn it, usually a few months. This appeal is taking to a specific court where a judge appointed for overseeing government benefits will hear the case and determine if the individual should or should note receive benefits based on the evidence that they provide. This sounds like an intimidating process, however, just like in any civil court of law, the applicant is allowed to have an advocate on their side to speak on his or her behalf and help the case be won.
A good Social Security advocate will work with the applicant to determine why the application was denied in the first place and what needs to be modified to allow it to be accepted the second time around. It may be that additional medical proof is needed or perhaps that sufficient financial need wasn’t documented. No matter the circumstances, the advocate will be able to work with the applicant to not only better complete the application, but will fight to see that he or she gets the necessary and desired benefits.
