Being notified that your claim for either SSI or SSDI benefits has been denied needn’t stop you from pursuing your claim. With help from an SSI/SSDI lawyer at our local law firm serving Ventana Ranch, you can continue to pursue those benefits through the appeal process:
The first stage of appeal is reconsideration – a complete review of your SSI or SSDI claim undertaken by a different Social Security examiner. Your lawyer may choose to submit additional information, such as treatment provider letters and third-party statements, that weren’t part of your initial application.
A second denial would provide an opportunity to have your claim heard by an administrative law judge (ALJ). Your SSI/SSDI lawyer would thoroughly prepare you for how to provide effective hearing testimony.
An unfavorable ruling at the hearing stage can be appealed to the Appeals Council. As a division of Social Security, the Appeals Council can either rule on your claim or return it to the ALJ for further review.
If necessary, a claim for either Supplemental Security Income or Social Security Disability Income benefits can be filed in federal court. A civil action of this nature must be filed in your nearest U.S. District Court within 60 days of the Appeals Council ruling. The lawyers at Michael Armstrong Law are fully experienced in developing the different types of documents needed for this type of appeal.
