Appealing Your Denied Disability Claim

Did your claim get denied? Don’t be surprised. The majority of Social Security disability claims are denied at the initial level. However,don’t be discouraged, Social Security often gets it wrong on the front end.

If you are denied at the initial level, you should consider a Social Security disability appeal. This means that you should file a Request for Reconsideration. This is a time where you should seriously consider hiring a Social Security disability attorney to represent you.

The Appeals Process is time sensitive and DEADLINES are enforced. If you have received a denial letter, be sure to call me today so that we can get started. There is a specific appeal process that must be followed. There is no need for you to pursue the appeal process alone without the professional guidance of an attorney. There are several levels of appeal:

  1. Request for Reconsideration, followed by a
  2. Hearing by an Administrative Law Judge, followed by a
  3. Review by the Appeals Council, and a
  4. Review in United States District Court.

Hiring a lawyer is a very good idea at any stage of the appeals process, and in fact, many people are hiring attorneys to help them with the initial application.

Contact me today and I will evaluate your case at no cost to you. You can call me or complete the Contact Form on this page.
