What If I Lose My Social Security Disability Case?

The majority of Social Security Disability requests are denied at the initial application phase. The Social Security Administration will notify the claimant if they have been denied and explain the process to appeal the decision. Appeals may be done within 60 days from the date the Social Security Disability denial letter has been received by the claimant. Under very limited conditions the Social Security Administration may allow an extension to file the Social Security Disability appeal.

Social Security Disability appeals may be completed online or the claimant may visit the nearest Social Security office. For more information about the SSD appeal’s process it is a good idea to contact a Social Security Disability attorney. The Social Security Administration also provides additional information on their website and claimants may also contact the Social Security Administration toll-free at 1-800-772-1213, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call the Social Security Administration’s toll-free TTY number, 1-800-325-0778.

The Social Security Disability process is comprised (for most SSD claimants) of four levels, each level requiring the claimant, if they are denied, to complete the appropriate forms to move to the next level. Some states skip the reconsideration phase which means that claimants who are denied at the Social Security Disability application level and appeal the denial will move directly to the hearing level.

Hiring a Social Security Disability Lawyer

Most Social Security Disability applications are denied at the initial application level. 80% of Reconsiderations are denied. Hiring a Social Security Disability lawyer is one of the best ways to increase your chances for receiving Social Security Disability benefits. Social Security Disability attorneys can review your initial application, gather medical records and present your Social Security Disability case before the Administrative Law Judge.
