If you are looking for a Utah Social Security Attorney, then you have come to the right place! Alpina Legal is devoted to the process of helping Utah’s citizens in receiving their social security benefits. If you have been dealing with financial insecurity and worries over your disability, illness or condition, now is the time to put your worries away and let our competent and knowledgeable Utah Social Security Attorney take on your case. With that said, we’d like to offer some free advice on getting started with this process.
First, don’t wait too long to apply for your benefits. As soon as you find out that you will not be able to work for 12 months or more, you should start the application process. This way, you will not miss out on back benefits that could be owed to you when your claim meets approval. In fact, even if you are able to work in a limited capacity but unable to earn a gainful income, you could still qualify for benefits. That’s why it’s important to get a Utah Social Security Attorney involved with your case.
Next, don’t give up too easily! Just because your claim wasn’t approved with your initial application doesn’t mean that all hope is lost. You can file an appeal if you are initially denied, but time is of the essence. You must file an appeal within 60 days of your denial. A first appeal means you will go into what is called ‘reconsideration’. Many of these appeals are denied as well, but after a reconsideration is denied, you have the opportunity to request what is called a ‘disability hearing’ and THIS is where people often find success. However, without a good Utah Social Security Attorney there to guide them through the process, most people miss out on getting their benefits. Don’t be one of those people!
