Q: My son is a retired Marine who sustained injury in Iraq been denied three time for Social Security disability benefit
has appeal every time he was denied
A: Your son should continue to appeal the denial. It's very common for claimants, including disabled veterans to be denied at the initial application and reconsideration levels. Your son's best chance for approval will likely be at the Administrative Hearing Level. I recommend that he contact a Social Security Disability attorney local to his area. A good attorney will help him gather the relevant medical documents and obtain statements from his doctors to submit to Social Security. An attorney will also represent him at the hearing and develop a strong legal theory under Social Security law as to why he should be found disabled.
