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 a denial at the reconsideration state, you have 60 days to ask for a hearing before an administrative law judge. The hearing is before an Administrative law Judge (ALJ) who will review your case and determine if you are eligible for benefits.

At the hearing you will have to opportunity to testify to your conditions and why it would be difficult for you to work full-time. The judge will have a job expert (known as a vocational expert) in the hearing. The job expert will testify to jobs that may or may not be available for people with limitations due to their health. An attorney with Midwest Disability, P.A. will be with you during the hearing, either in person, or on the phone. They will also ask you questions about your conditions, treatments and limitations. The attorney will also question the job expert. Our attorneys have many years of representing clients in SSD hearing and can do so effectively for your claim.
