If your claim for Social Security Disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income benefits has been denied, don't give up. While most initial applications for benefits are denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA), there are still options after your initial claim is denied. However, there are specific timeline restrictions — so act now to make sure your rights are fully protected.
At the Vrsecky Law Firm, we will focus on helping you to obtain your Social Security benefits. Contact us to have over 50 years of combined experience on your side.
The SSA is extremely rigorous in their review of initial application for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income benefits. In fact, even the most thorough claims can be denied. However, having experienced legal counsel throughout the application process or appeals process can greatly improve your chances for success in obtaining benefits.
After the denial of your initial application and your Request for Reconsideration, we can help you with the following:
A) Administrative Hearing
Once you have received notification of a denied claim, you have 60 days to request a hearing. Do not wait to consult with a lawyer. It can be difficult to prepare a thorough case without sufficient time.
B) Appeals Council Review
If your claim for benefits is denied after your administrative hearing, you have 60 days to request a review by the Appeals Council. Our attorneys have significant experience preparing written arguments in support of your claim for benefits.
C) Federal Appeal
Finally, if you are still facing a claim denial after your hearing and review, you may choose to file an appeal for benefits with the Federal court. Our law firm has extensive experience representing clients with Federal appeals.
