Social Security issues can be very complex. Claimants can be denied benefits regardless of how legitimate their claim may be. If you have been denied benefits through Social Security, filing an appeal is time sensitive—you have only 60 days to do so.

One of the biggest complaints about the Social Security disability application process is that it takes too long. We can help you submit a more complete and thorough application, which can lead to a faster award of the Social Security Benefits to which you are entitled. We will work hand-in-hand with you to carefully consider whether your case qualifies for an “on the record decision.”
Peterson & Associates, P.C. represents individuals at all of the following levels:
Your application is submitted to a local Disability Determination Services (DDS) office to be reviewed. You will receive written notice from Social Security once your claim has been decided.
If your initial application is denied, you must file an appeal within 60 days or you will lose your right to appeal and your latest decision will become final. However, you have every right to challenge an adverse determination, and our Kansas City SSD lawyers are here to help you.
