How Does The Appeal Process Work?
The Social Security Disability appeals process can be lengthy. There are many steps, and you can easily get caught up in red tape and complex regulations. It is important to have the guidance of an experienced Social Security lawyer to successfully resolve your case and get the benefits you deserve. Our firm is dedicated to representing our clients in every step of their appeals.
The Steps We Follow In The Appeal Process
- Request for reconsideration: This first step of an appeal starts with a Social Security Administration (SSA) employee in Raleigh sending you forms. These forms will be evaluated by your local SSA office, and a determination may be made at this time.
- Request for an appeals hearing: If the Social Security Disability reconsideration is denied, the next step is to request a hearing. An experienced Greensboro disability appeals attorney from our firm will explain your situation in depth to a judge, supported by a detailed brief we have written that explains your condition and situation.
- Appeals Council: After the hearing, if your petition for benefits is again denied, we may appeal your case to the Appeals Council. At this stage, we write comprehensive briefs detailing your disability and qualifications for benefits and fill out the appropriate forms. Our extensive writing experience and academic credentials are valuable to our clients, especially in this step of the process.
- Federal Court of Appeals: If your appeal has been denied at every step up to this point, we can represent you before the federal court. This level requires technical experience of the law and passionate advocacy, two things we possess.
