Social Security and Medicare FAQ
Q: If I am denied for disability benefits or Medicare, should I appeal?
A: Before filing a new application you should appeal any initial unfavorable decision. Filing a new application is not the same as appealing the unfavorable decision and delays the potential receipt and amount of past-due benefits. Delaying an appeal might mean missing an appeal deadline or later being precluded from seeking benefits for that same period of time.
Q: How long do I have to file an appeal if denied?
A: Any adverse decision from Social Security will be given to you in writing and it will include notice of your appeal rights including the time limit you have to file the appeal. For most stages of an appeal you have 60 days from the date of the denial to request an appeal. Once denied it is important to seek assistance from experienced Social Security Disability and Medicare attorneys early in the process to preserve your rights.
Q: If I hire Bryant Legal Group PC will an attorney be assigned to my case?

Q: How much will it cost me to have Bryant Legal Group PC handle my Social Security disability case?
A: Attorney fees in Social Security cases are set by statute and Bryant Legal Group PC fees are in compliance with the law. Fees in Social Security cases are contingent, which means that you will not pay an attorney fee unless we win and you are awarded past due benefits. Currently the fee is 25% of past-due benefits awarded up to a maximum of $6,000.00, set by statute. Additional expenses related to your case such as the cost of acquiring medical records, etc. are billed to you separately at the conclusion of your case.
