The Social Security Administration often denies first-time claims. If you take the right steps, you have effective options for ultimately winning approval. Because of the strict deadline — generally 60 days — for filing an appeal at each level, you should act immediately upon receiving a letter of denial from SSA.
Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A. was founded four decades ago to help disabled people recover the benefits to which they are entitled. We can assist you through initial filing, request for reconsideration and the administrative hearing before the Social Security Appeals Council.
The administrative hearing is an opportunity to have your denied claim heard by an administrative law judge (ALJ). Our dedicated Social Security lawyers accompany you to the hearing and present your argument to the ALJ. We either attend the hearing in person or arrange for you to appear via video conference at a more convenient location. If your disability prevents you from traveling, we submit a doctor’s report to waive your attendance.
Our team fully prepares you for the hearing so that you know what to expect and feel confident in your case. Depending upon your individual claim, we may:
The judge issues an order, either approving or denying your claim, which is sent to us by mail. If your claim is denied, our determined attorneys file a lawsuit in federal court.
