A Strong Legal Advocate For Your SSD Appeal Hearing

If you have applied for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and your claim was denied, this is the best time to bring an attorney in to help with your case. After a denial, you can ask the Social Security Administration (SSA) to reconsider your case.

You must make the request for reconsideration within 60 days of the denial. An experienced SSD attorney can help you prepare your documentation for your reconsideration request.

If your claim is denied again and you are still convinced that you should qualify for SSD benefits, the next step is to request a hearing before an administrative law judge. At this appeal hearing, you will have the opportunity to present additional documentation or other evidence that you are unable to work because of a disability that is expected to last a year or longer.

If your SSD claim is denied once again at the administrative hearing, this is not the last recourse. You can still take your case before the appeals panel, consisting of a panel of SSA judges. If the result of this appeal is unsatisfactory, and if your attorney believes the appeals panel committed legal errors, you may be able to take your case to the federal district court.

At Christina Rivenbark & Associates, we help clients whose SSD claims have been denied at every stage of appeal. We are often successful at convincing an administrative law judge at the appeal hearing that our clients’ cases have merit.
