Do Not Take No For An Answer In Your Social Security Disability Application
If you have applied to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you know how much effort goes into the application process. That only makes things more demoralizing when the government denies your application. While it can feel like there is nothing you can do from here, we at Jones, Hawkins, & Associates, LLC, want you to know that you do not have to settle for their decision.
More than half of all claims for SSD benefits are denied by the government on their first application, so the appeals process is very common. Our team has extensive experience in the appeals process, so we can help you appeal the government’s denial in a swift and efficient manner.
What The Social Security Disability Claims Appeals Process Looks Like
While we call it an appeal process, the appeal isn’t actually the first step to overturning your benefit denial. If your claim was denied by the government, you first need to request a reconsideration. This is when a different official than your original reviewer looks over your case, and consider approving your claim. If it is denied again, your case will continue to climb the chain of command. Your case will escalate to a judge, then the appeals council, and lastly, a federal court review.
Our lawyers can help you from the first to final step in fighting for the benefits you need to survive. While this process can be long and challenging, you are not alone in it. Our years of experience have taught us how to efficiently fight to earn the benefits you deserve.
