What happens after approval of your Social Security Disability claim? Unfortunately, obtaining approval in your case is not the end of our work on your behalf. After such a decision, there are a number of factors that can affect the total compensation you receive. There may be offsets that must be considered, particularly if the Social Security Disability claim has grown out of a workers’ compensation or personal injury claim. Boxer & Gerson, LLP will work diligently to protect your rights and seek to maximize the total compensation you receive.
Our attorneys are expert and experienced in employing a “global” coordinated approach to maximizing your award. That means handling your SSD, workers’ compensation and personal injury cases all “in-house.” This maximizes the chances of a higher total recovery, since we understand the interplay between the various claims.
If the administrative law judge rejects your claim after a hearing, Boxer & Gerson, LLP may continue to work to achieve your goals. We are experienced in Social Security Disability appeals, and we can take your case before the Appeals Council, or to the U.S. District Court, if appropriate and mutually agreed to.
An important consideration: After a rejection at the hearing stage, you have only 60 days to file an appeal. Call Boxer & Gerson, LLP at 888-326-0229 as soon as possible after you receive a rejection notice.
