Social Security Disability Appeals

Has the Social Security Administration denied your claim? This frustrating response actually happens more often than you may realize. Each year, countless people are denied Social Security disability (SSD) benefits; it is estimated that up to 75% of individuals' first applications are denied. If you have been denied benefits, then you need to contact a trusted Reading and Pottstown attorney from our firm right away. Our firm has assisted many individuals with successfully appealing their denied claims. We can use our experience and knowledge of the various laws regarding Social Security to help obtain the best possible resolution for your case.

After a denial, you need to make sure that you act quickly because you only have 60 days to file an appeal. There are a number of reasons why an appeal can be denied; even a small error in paperwork can cause complications. Even if you qualify for benefits, a simple misunderstanding regarding the filing process can result in a denial. In most situations, working with an attorney can help ensure that rights are protected and that benefits are approved after the first submission. Of course, if you have been denied benefits, you can work with our firm to appeal your case. We can aggressively pursue the best possible resolution for your situation.

When you work with our firm, we can walk you throughout the appeal process and help ensure that you receive the benefits that you deserve. In order to submit an appeal, you will need to:

  • Submit a request for reconsideration document within 60 days of the denied SSD claim
  • Attend an administrative hearing that will discuss you request for reconsideration - at the hearing, you can make an argument for your approval
  • Attend an Appeals Council review if you are again denied after an administrative hearing - you may need to submit additional documents
  • Ensure that your rights are protected by working with Dolan Ray Law, LLC, particularly if your case goes to federal court
