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 denial rates
  • 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

It truly is not surprising to have your initial case denied. Our Social Security Disability representatives have been helping individuals for the past 20 years to get them the benefits they deserve. We are exclusively skilled in the area of social security law and from our dedication we have restricted our practice to Social Security Disability and supplemental security income cases only.
