“I’ve been denied for benefits already. Now what?”
If you’ve been previously denied for Social Security disability benefits, do not be discouraged. In fact, roughly 70 percent of initial claims are denied by the SSA.
It often takes several rounds of appeals to win approval for benefits.
A Riddle & Brantley disability lawyer with experience in Kernersville and the Triad can help manage your appeal.
The appeals process occurs at multiple levels, including:
- Reconsideration — If your initial application is denied, you can request a second review by a different claim examiner. In most cases, denials are not overturned at this stage and we proceed to the next level of appeal.
- Hearing — When a claim is denied at the Reconsideration level, you or your disability attorney can request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Here, your attorney can present important evidence and even cross-examine witnesses.
- Appeals Council — Claims denied at the Hearing level can be appealed to the Appeals Council. While the Appeals Council does not often reverse denials outright, it often sends claims back to the ALJ for reconsideration based on errors and other evidence it uncovers.
- Federal Court — In certain instances, your disability lawyer may determine it is necessary to file a lawsuit in federal court when your claim has been denied by the Appeals Council.
- Appeals Court — If you lose your case in federal court, you may file an appeal with the federal appeals court. However, this step is seldom taken and can even add several more years to your wait time.
