Important Note About Applying or Re-Applying For Disability Benefits:
Utilizing a Social Security Disability attorney or advocate may improve your chances of initial approval, get your approval processed more quickly and in many cases increase the amount of benefits you are awarded. There are no upfront expenses to you for the evaluation, filing or appeal process. To get immediate assistance from one of our attorneys or advocates, please fill out the FREE Evaluation Form Above. This website is not affiliated with the Social Security Administration ("SSA") or any state or federal agency. If you choose to apply on your own without representation, you may do so at no cost on the SSA website.
You have two choices when it comes to applying for Social Security Disability Benefits.
The first choice is that you can submit your Social Security Disability Claim on your own. This can often be a challenging process, full of paperwork, medical phone calls, and court hearings on your own, but it is an option.
The second choice is for you to work with a qualified Social Security Disability Benefits lawyer to submit your Social Security Disability Claim. This choice is often the one individuals make, as statistics prove that working with a SSDI lawyer you are more likely to get the Social Security Disability Benefits you are entitled to
The reason more individuals receive Social Security Disability Benefits when having a lawyer help them file their claim is because these legal advocates understand how the system works, which paperwork to file, and what is necessary to bring to court hearings. These SSDI lawyers will work to get you the benefits you deserve and will fight the Social Security Administration to get you what is rightfully yours.
Not only do you increase your chances of winning your claim when you use legal representation, but you also maximize the benefits you receive, as your legal advocate will get you the most money you qualify for.
Legal representation for your Social Security Disability Benefits claim will save you time and frustration and will gain you benefits and the security of knowing a knowledgeable representative is helping you get what is legally yours.
You will also only have to pay the SSDI lawyer on your team if you win.

Because the majority of Social Security Disability Insurance claims are denied (although your chances of being awarded Social Security Disability Insurance are greatly improved when working with a SSDI lawyer) it is important to learn how to appeal denied claims.
It can be frustrating when after working so hard on your application the Social Security Administration denies your claim, especially when you are denied solely because of a technicality, such as inadequate medical documentation or that the Social Security Administration does not believe your disability prevents you from performing all types of work.
Regardless of the reason why your Social Security Disability Insurance claim is denied, you should appeal the decision.
The appeal process includes four stages, which are:
Reconsideration: After the denial of your initial claim, you must file a “Request for Reconsideration” within 60 days. An examiner at the Disability Determination Services who did not evaluate your claim the first time will now evaluate your case.
If you receive a denial of your Reconsideration request, you have 60 days to file again.
Administrative Hearing: An Administrative Hearing is where you present your Social Security Disability Insurance claim to an Administrative Law Judge. You will be given the opportunity in court to make your case and witnesses may be called to testify on your behalf.
After the Administrative Hearing the judge will make a decision and notify you within two months.
If you are denied, you have 60 days to appeal.
Appeals Court Review: The Appeals Council must review your Social Security Disability Insurance claim before it can be sent to the United States District Court.
The Appeals Council may request additional information from you about your case at this time.
Federal Court: If your Request for Reconsideration has been approved it is strongly advised that you work with a legal Social Security Disability Insurance representative to help you complete the extensive process of getting your claim approved. These legal representatives will be familiar with both the system and the process of SSDI claims and can help you fill out paperwork, go with you to court hearings, and speed up the process of getting you the Social Security Disability Insurance you deserve.
