What You Need To Know If Your Social Security Disability Claim Has Been Denied

In Florida, and elsewhere, when you submit a claim for Social Security Disability benefits, you shouldn't be surprised if the Social Security Administration denies the claim. So, then what happens if it's denied not once, but twice? You will have a right to request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge, who will review the evidence -- including personal and expert testimony. Tampa Social Security Disability Lawyer Mike Murburg says: "The testimony of the vocational expert can have a significant impact on your ability to receive SSDI benefits, as it is dependent on your ability to clearly demonstrate that you are incapable of working in a pre-existing or alternative position due to the severity of your condition." If the vocational expert gives testimony that is in direct contention with your interest in securing SSDI benefits, you may be able to demonstrate that you do not have the requisite, transferable skill set necessary to perform the job that is being presented as a reasonable alternative.
