Have you been denied Social Security Disability benefits?
If you’ve been denied Social Security disability benefits, do not be discouraged. The reality is that most initial applications for benefits are denied.
A disability lawyer with experience in Morrisville and the Triangle can help maximize the chances that your appeal is ultimately approved and you receive the benefits you need and deserve.
We have many options available to us for appealing your disability claim, including:
- Reconsideration — At the reconsideration level a different Claim Examiner with the Disability Determination Services (“DDS”) office reviews claims that have been denied at the Initial Application stage.
- Hearing — If your claim is denied at the Reconsideration level (and most are), we can request a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge (“ALJ”). At the hearing a disability lawyer with experience in Morrisville can present your case, cross-examine witnesses and more. Roughly 47 percent of claims are approved at the Hearing level.
- Appeals Council — Claims denied by the ALJ can be appealed to the Appeals Council. The Appeals Council has the power to reverse denials by the ALJ, or send the case back to the ALJ for further review.
- Federal Court — If your claim continues to be unjustly denied, we can appeal your case by filing a lawsuit in federal court. Although the court rarely overturns a decision itself, more than 50 percent of the time they find errors in the ALJ’s determination and send the case back for further consideration.
