An application for Social Security Disability income (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits most often goes through three phases, which include:

  • The application process. The initial claim denial rate is very high – upwards of 65 percent.
  • The reconsideration phase. If your initial claim is denied, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will reconsider if you request it.
  • The application for a hearing and the presentation of your case before and administrative judge (ALJ).
  • With effective assistance of counsel, we will make every effort to speed up the appeals process so that your case will be heard as soon as possible. Winning a social security hearing takes more than just showing up and telling your side of the story. You will be expected to produce medical evidence and support your claim and we have the experience and know how to assist you with your claim every step of the way, including Federal District Court of Appeals in necessary.

    One of the biggest complaints is that the process take too long and often leads an individual and family into financial ruin. The Social Security Administration has gone to an electronic appeal process via its secured website. We have access to the most efficient and time saving methods of pursuing your rights and need for social security disability, SSI, Medicare, and Medicaid.


    Though the time that an appeals case takes has recently decreased between 30 and 40 percent, we are experienced at fighting the often slow pace of the claim appeals process.

We are able to use your medical history and testimony to humanize you, allowing the SSA to see your situation for exactly what it is.
