Our disability benefits attorney will stay by your side through every stage necessary of the appeal process, including:

  • Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing
  • Appeals Council review
  • Federal Court review


Reconsideration Review

You have 60 days to file an appeal for a reconsideration of your SSD claim if your initial application has been denied by the SSA. At this level of appeal, the SSA reviews your claim. You will have the opportunity to present medical documentation and supporting information that you may not have been included in your initial claim.

Administrative Law Judge Hearing

If the Reconsideration Review is denied the case goes before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Just like the initial denial for disability benefits, you have 60 days from the Reconsideration denial.  You will be able to bring witnesses and experts before the ALJ.

Appeals Council

If the ALJ denies your appeal, the next step is to go before the Appeals Council. This appeal also must be filed within 60 days of the ALJ's denial of your appeal. The Appeals Council will review the reconsideration decision of the ALJ to see if the evidence was properly considered and that there weren't any errors in their determination.

Federal Court

The final step is to file a claim in Federal Court if the Appeas Council denies your review. As with all other appeals, the appeal must be filed within 60 days of the Appeals Council's denial. There is no jury in the District Court's hearing which considers procedural errors and sometimes will consider evidence and facts brought up before the Appeal's Council.

We do our best to get you a successful disability benefits review!
