How to Mount a Successful SSDI Appeal
The appeals process includes written requests for reconsideration as well as hearings you must attend in person.
We can help you through all stages of the process:
- Written appeals: A written appeal, or request for reconsideration, is the first step after your initial application has been denied. A request for reconsideration must include an update on your disability. We may include medical evaluations from your doctors, photographs, a list of medications and other information that illustrates the severity of your disability.
- Hearings: If your request for reconsideration is denied, you may request a hearing with an administrative law judge. Hearings are important because they allow you to present your case in person to a Social Security judge for the first time. If your case gets a hearing, we will prepare you for the process, from helping you prepare for questions to lining up witnesses to testify on your behalf.
If your case is not approved at the initial hearing, we can appeal to a higher authority, including the Social Security appeals council and finally, federal district court. The appeals process can be complex, but can also yield positive results. Give yourself the best possible chance of success by working with an experienced SSDI lawyer.
