Get Your SSI & SSDI Benefit Claim Approved

Because there's so much at stake when applying for Social Security, working with an experienced attorney  throughout the process is heplful.

Social Security  Disability Attorney

Getting approved for Social Security Disability benefits without an attorney can be difficult due to the high chance of being denied. Statistically, 70% of all SSDI and SSI claims are denied after the initial application; most people who go through the process of applying for Social Security disability will be denied the first time, sometimes even if their case is strong. For this reason, having legal representation on a disability claim is important, and can make the difference between winning and losing the claim.

 THIS IS AN ATTORNEY ADVERTISING

Initial: Initial application stage involves applying for SSI and/or SSDI benefits. You are free to do this on your own, but we can help you complete the application and accompanying forms. After applying, it may take the Social Security Administration 2 to 6 months to process your application.

The Social Security Process

1

Reconsideration: If your initial application is denied, your case will be appealed and move onto Reconsideration. The Reconsideration stage involves the Administration collecting more records (if you alert them to the existence of new records) and reviewing your case. This review will generally take 1 to 5 months.

2

Hearing: If your Reconsideration is denied. Claimants generally wait an average of 18-24 months for a hearing, after requesting one. The Administration will alert you of the time, date, and place of your hearing about six weeks to a month before the hearing. During this time we will gather evidence and prepare for your hearing.

3

4

Decision: Some judges will make a decision at the hearing. Other judges will take 6 – 8 weeks to decide. Regardless, a written decision is sent explaining the reasons supporting the decision. If you win, you will begin the process of being “placed in pay.” It often takes 6 to 12 weeks to get monthly benefits started, and a few months longer to get your full back award.
