Do You Want Another Chance to Get Life-Changing Disability Benefits?

    When you were counting on Social Security Disability benefits to restore stability to your life after health problems pushed you out of work, getting denied for benefits can make you feel hopeless.

    But all hope is not lost.

    In fact, most people who apply for benefits are denied Social Security Disability.

    For many, it’s when you appeal the denial that you finally win the monthly income and Medicare or Medicaid health coverage you need to move forward after the disruption of major health problems.

    Steps to Appealing Your Social Security Disability Denial

    Social Security gives you multiple chances to change a decision about refusing your benefits. Here are the steps:

    • File for Reconsideration: When your Social Security Disability is denied the first time, you can update the information in your claim and ask for a fresh review from the Social Security Administration (SSA). Your lawyer can study why your claim was denied the first time and seek to correct the problem.
    • Go to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Hearing: Frankly, most people get denied again on reconsideration. So next you ask an ALJ to review your case. This is your chance to explain directly to someone at the SSA why you need benefits. It can be your best chance at gaining approval.
    • Take Your Claim to the Appeals Council: If you’re denied Social Security Disability after a hearing, you can ask a team inside Social Security called the Appeals Council to review the decision from the disability judge. This requires examining the judge’s ruling to point out faults, something your lawyer can do.
    • Suing in Federal Court: If Social Security refuses your benefits at every step, your next option is going to the US District Court to argue why the SSA was wrong. Geary Disability Law can review your situation and recommend your best course for representation at the federal level.

    So you were denied Social Security Disability. Now what? Our disability law firm can give you an idea of what it will take to appeal your Social Security Disability denial and get you another chance at life-changing benefits.

    You don’t pay anything for an initial evaluation of your claim.
