Appealing Denied SSD Claims

A denied Social Security Disability (Social Security Disability) claim can feel like a harsh setback, but remember, there is hope through the appeals process. In fact, the overwhelming majority of initial claims are denied. Your best chance of qualifying for benefits is by mounting a successful appeal.

If you are appealing a denied Social Security Disability claim, I can provide you with the experienced representation you need. With my law office in New Lenox, I serve disabled and injured clients throughout Will and Kankakee counties and the entire Chicagoland area.

The Social Security Disability Appeals Process

Have you been denied disability? I can represent you during the Social Security Disability appeals process, including:

  • The request for reconsideration: A written appeal. A chance to provide additional information about your disability to the Social Security Administration (SSA).
  • Before an administrative law judge at the hearing: At the hearing we present your case including medical documentation and testimony before an administrative law judge who decides your case.
  • The SSA Appeals Council: If denied, The Appeals Council can review your claim to determine if errors were made at the previous hearing.

If you have not yet applied for Social Security Disability benefits, I can assist you with your initial application, ensuring that all the paperwork is filled out and filed correctly. Having an experienced lawyer review your claim can give you a better chance of qualifying, and aid in the appeals process if your claim is denied.
