Appealing Your SSD Benefits Claim in Las Vegas
What to Do After Receiving a Denial
Most people are denied by the
Social Security Administration the first time they apply for
disability benefits, but this does not have to be the end of your case. The first appeal available
to you is called a reconsideration, and must be requested within 60 days
from the date of your denial. If your reconsideration appeal fails, you
can file for a hearing before an administrative law judge. You again have
60 days from the date of your second denial to file for a hearing. If
your hearing still finds that you do not qualify for benefits, you may
appeal a third time for a review by the Appeals council. The fourth and
final appeal available to you is a suit filed in federal district court.
The appeals process is often long, very technical and can quickly become
overwhelming if you are not prepared to fight a legal battle. You need
a Social Security Disability advocate to plan and execute your appeals
case for you.
“DAA did a fine job on my case. Attorney John Boyden was entirely
and handled my appeal hearing well. I would highly recommend them any time.”
Disability Action Advocates understands why your case may have been denied
by your disability determination examiner, and we know what additional
evidence needs to be submitted to the Disability Determination Service
during your appeal. We have won thousands of cases for people whose disabilities
prevent them from obtaining gainful employment.

After filing for an appeal, your
claim wait time may vary, but your Social Security Disability advocate will follow up

all the evidence in your case, and take steps to make sure your appeal
is processed as quickly as possible. The stronger your case is, the less
time it may take to evaluate, and you want the best when it comes to something
as important as your disability benefits.
