Millions of people in the United States and in the Chattanooga area rely on Social Security benefits. Workers pay into these benefits out of their paychecks so that they can use their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) if they become unable to work. When you are unable to work due to a disability, being denied what is needed to provide for your family can be extremely frustrating! Especially when you've worked so hard for your paychecks, paying into the Social Security Disability system.
It's not acceptable that your loved ones may have to do without their needs or that your own health may suffer because of being denied your Social Security Disability benefits.

In-Depth Knowledge of SSDI Applications
Most applications are rejected because the applicant failed to meet the basic criteria for SSDI benefits or failed to prove they were indeed eligible. Our attorney has legal experience with disability benefits and has handled thousands of cases. We have an in-depth knowledge of SSDI applications, including the particulars an SSA examiner will look for when reevaluating a claim.
Our firm can provide the meticulous attention to detail required to assess your initial SSDI benefits application and determine what caused it to be rejected. You will not be alone in your appeal and we will be there to help every step of the way. When it matters most we have the experience with Social Security Disability to offer the guidance you need to successfully get the benefits you need.
Your disability benefits lawyer will ensure your appeal application meets SSA approval standards by making sure all medical records supporting your disability claim are timely, accurate, and thorough. We will also help you obtain the additional medical records you need to substantiate your claim for benefits. Garnering the written and verbal testimony of expert vocational witnesses, medical experts, and family members who can attest to the difficulties of your disability and inability to work can be crucial to your case. Your disability lawyer will do everything he can to make this happen.
Caring Legal Guidance From Our SSDI Lawyer
Regrettably, the SSDI appeals process can take anywhere from six months to two years, or longer.
Rest assured, Jackson Law Firm, PLLC specializes in Social Security Disability Benefits and offers the steadfast legal guidance you deserve for as long as it takes. Once your application is granted, we can deliver the vigorous advocacy required to garner all the benefits and compensation you are entitled to, including financial assistance for applicable family members and the maximum amount of back pay possible in your case.
Our attorney will stay by your side through every stage necessary of the appeal process, including:
- Reconsideration review
- Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing
- Appeals Council review
- Federal Court review
You have 60 days to file an appeal for a reconsideration of your 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 documentation and supporting that you may not have been included in your initial claim.
Administrative Law Judge Hearing
If the Consideration 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 Review
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 decision of the ALJ to see if the evidence was properly considered and that there weren't any errors.
Federal Court Review
The final step is to file a claim in Federal Court if the Appeals 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.
