What To Do If Your SSD Claim Was Denied

Appeals Many initial Social Security Disability (SSD) claims are denied. However, this does not mean that you will never get the benefits to which you are entitled. If your claim was denied, the next step is to file an appeal. At least half of all appeals are approved, resulting in the recovery of benefits.

We are highly knowledgeable about client options; we have even succeeded in having deadlines extended for clients in need.

Handling The SSD Appeals Process

We follow the process laid out by the Social Security Administration, which includes:

  • Reconsideration, which is a review of your case by your local Social Security office
  • Independent review of the decision by an administrative law judge
  • Appeal to the Social Security Administration's Appeals Council
  • A lawsuit filed in federal district court

Most cases are won at the hearing before an administrative law judge, but we can take your appeal as far as possible to get favorable results. Our lawyers are highly effective courtroom attorneys; we have facilitated thousands of hearings and will be your strong advocate.
