The application process for SSI or SSD/SSDI can lead to a lengthy process that is comprised of several steps. These steps include:
- Filing a disability claim.
- Applying for reconsideration.
- Requesting a court hearing.
- Requesting an appeal.
- Filing a lawsuit in federal court.
Our disability claims lawyers at Parmele Law Firm will work vigorously to win your case before or during the court hearing stage.
What Is a Disability Claim?
If you are an individual who has a mental or physical impairment that limits your everyday activities, you may be eligible to file a claim with one our disability claims lawyers. A disability claim is when an individual requests to be approved for a financial program through the Social Security Administration such as SSI or SSD/SSDI.
After a disability claim is filed, it is then reviewed by the Social Security Administration. They will either approve the claim or deny the claim based on the information that was submitted on the application.
Oftentimes, an initial disability claim will not be approved. If this happens to you, you can submit an application for reconsideration. If your application does not get approved again, you can then request a hearing. If the judge makes a decision that you are not satisfied with, you have the option to appeal your claim with one of our disability claims lawyers.
What Is an Appeal?
An appeal can be filed if you are unhappy with the decision the judge made in court about your disability claim. If they accept your request for review, your claim will then be analyzed by the Social Security Appeals Council. The Appeals Council has the authority to deny or approve your claim or return your case to a judge.
If the Social Security Appeals Council denies your claim, the final step is to file a lawsuit in federal court. It is important and necessary to hire an attorney to help you every step of the way. Our disability claims lawyers at Parmele Law are experienced and knowledgeable in disability law and will aggressively represent you throughout the entire claims process.
