Appealing Your Social Security Disability Claim
Do not despair if your claim is denied. Statistically 60 percent of initial appeals are denied. You have 60 days to appeal the denial. Your appeal will be reviewed by the same office a second time. Do not be surprised if your first appeal is denied as well. An overwhelming majority of first appeals, about 85 percent, are denied in the appeal process. Again, do not lose hope.
Perseverance puts you in the best place possible to win a claim. If your first appeal was denied, you have another 60 days to file a second appeal and request a hearing with a Social Security administrative law judge. This is a is a very slow process — it take patience to go through each layer of the process. It can be 12-14 months between requesting a hearing and obtaining a hearing.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
Generally when an individual hires our firm, we find that their record is not as complete as it should be, because the Social Security workers are tremendously overburdened with cases. As your law firm, we will obtain your documents so your file can receive full consideration. Additionally, we can review your facts and craft a powerful legal argument to support your case.
