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.

We will verify that they received all the evidence in your case, and take steps to make sure your appeal is processed as quickly as possible.
