Las Vegas SSDI Appeals & Hearings
Facing an appeal or a hearing?
If your application for Social Security Disability benefits has been denied,
do not give up! Even in strong cases, the Social Security Administration
(SSA) appears to deny if for no better reason than to hope that you will
quit and they won't have to pay you benefits. The application process
has multiple built-in appeal levels which can change the original decision
and end up awarding you with needed benefits. Enlisting representation
early in the process is recommended for the smoothest and shortest road
to success, but you can still speak with a Las Vegas Social Security Disability
advocate even after your claim is denied.
Contact our legal team at Disability Action Advocates as soon as possible and let
us get started with the appeals process so that you have the best chance
of winning you case.
Different Levels of Appeal
The four levels of appeal in the Social Security Disability application process include:
Reconsideration: Claim review with very high
Hearing: Held before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ); claimant can appear with
counsel and present evidence, call witnesses, answer questions; SSA will
send letter with ALJ's decision
SSA Appeals Council Hearing: Brought if claimant disagrees with ALJ's decision; can appear with counsel;
Council can deny the appeal, send case back to ALJ or hear/decide the case
Federal District Court Appeal: Attempt to file a lawsuit as a last recourse
