About the SSD Hearing

Initial SSD Application Denied?

After suffering a disabling injury, it can be an especially frustrating and complex process in seeking SSD (Social Security Disability) benefits. If you have already applied for SSD benefits and have been denied, your options do not stop there. There is the appeals process, including an SSD hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). There are deadlines that must be met, including a 60 days from the time you were denied to request a hearing.

Time is of the essence in these situations as you will want to give the attorney that you obtain time to prepare for your case and review all the facts surrounding it, including medical records and your initial filing. In addition to taking steps immediately, it is also important to make sure that you hire only the most experienced of SSD lawyers.

The SSD (Social Security Disability) Hearing

Once you have received an initial denial from your SSD administration office, the clock begins ticking until you must give your response. You have exactly 60 days from this time to request an administrative hearing. The hearing is before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) who will review your case and determine whether or not to reverse the denial of your initial claim for benefits.

At this hearing, you will have a chance to present additional information and evidence to support your SSD claim and even to bring forth witnesses. The ALJ will not have reviewed your case prior to the hearing so it is critical that your file is organized, concise and has all the necessary and relevant information. That is why having an attorney who can prepare this for you and skillfully represent you at the hearing is so important to your SSD claim. Our attorneys have many years of experience representing clients in SSD hearings and can effectively do so for your particular disability claim.
