Filing for Disability Benefits and Appealing Denials
Social Security Disability Income benefits (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income benefits (SSI) provide federal benefits to persons who are disabled and whose conditions prevent them from returning to meaningful employment. The SSDI available is based on your past wages and SSI is based on your financial need. While filing for disability seems straightforward, the majority of claims are initially denied as a matter of process, but may still be approved if you file a timely Request for Reconsideration. If the Reconsideration is denied, which many are, you may continue the appeals process by filing a Request for Hearing. Your hearing will take place before an administrative law judge (ALJ) assigned to your case. We will file all appeals for you, compile all medical information, and represent you at your hearing. Most cases are won at the ALJ hearing, so it is important to be adequately prepared and effectively represented. There are appeal rights, however, beyond the ALJ hearing in the event the decision is unfavorable. These appeal rights are addressed on an as-needed basis.
