If you’re trying to win disability benefits, you’re most likely struggling both physically and financially. The Raleigh-based disability attorneys at Burch & Rodgers are here to help you through the complicated Social Security Disability process.
Applying for disability benefits seems overwhelming. An application for Disability Insurance Benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) must be filed with the Social Security Administration. Most people are denied the first time, but we can advise you about the application process.
Don’t get frustrated! The process to appeal can be long and tedious, but success is possible. However, you have a limited amount of time to file for an appeal. It’s important to call Burch & Rodgers if your claim is denied.
A denial isn’t the end of your claim. We know the process. We will file a Request for Reconsideration on your behalf.
If your Request for Reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge. If an Administrative Law Judge denies your case, we can advise you on appealing your case to the Appeals Council. Finally, if the Appeals Council denies your case, we may appeal in Federal Court. The appeals process involves complicated rules. Sometimes it’s best to file a new claim rather than going through the long process of appealing. Either way, we’re with you from start to finish.
