“I would recommend Riddle & Brantley to anyone who needs help with disability.”
–B. Fields, Riddle & Brantley client
“I’ve been turned down for disability by the Social Security Administration. Now what?”
If you’ve been turned down for disability benefits by the Social Security Administration (SSA), do not be discouraged.
Statistics show that roughly 70 percent of those who apply are initially denied, so you’re not alone.
There are many options for appealing a denial by the SSA and Riddle & Brantley’s disability lawyers with experience in Albemarle and surrounding North Carolina may be able to help.
According to recent research, just 34 percent of those who apply for Social Security Disability benefits and do not hire an attorney are ultimately approved, while 60 percent of those who do hire a disability lawyer are ultimately approved.
At Riddle & Brantley, our attorneys handle all aspects of the disability appeals process, including:
- Reconsideration — If your initial claim is denied by the SSA, you have the option to file a Request for Reconsideration, at which point your claim will be reviewed by a different claims examiner.
- Hearing — If your claim is again denied at the Reconsideration level, you can file a request for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). At the hearing, your disability attorney can present medical records and evidence supporting your case and even cross-examine key witnesses.
- Appeals Council — If the ALJ denies your claim, you still have options to appeal and can request review by the Appeals Council. While the Appeals Council does not often overturn the ruling of the ALJ, it often sends cases back for further review.
- Federal Court — If your claim continues to be unjustly denied, a disability lawyer with experience in Albemarle and greater North Carolina can help file a lawsuit in federal district court. If that isn’t successful, you even have the option of appealing the the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, although this is rare.
If you’ve been denied Social Security disability benefits, a disability lawyer serving Albemarle NC can help.
