However, it can be very difficult to keep a reliable source of income when you cannot work full time due to a disability or illness.

First Time SSD Applicants
Our Attorneys Can Assist with Your SSD Application
The application process for SSD and SSI benefits can be difficult and when you are dealing with an illness or injury and worrying about how you are going to support your family, this situation can be quite stressful. There is also a high chance that your application will be denied as the Social Security Administration denies 65 percent of first-time applications that either have an error or were not submitted with the proper paperwork. Around 91 percent of applications that are denied are then put through the appeals process for reconsideration.
It is important to fill out your application correctly upon your first submission and have the proper documentation to improve your chances of being approved. If your application is not approved, you will have to go through a drawn-out appeals process that will delay the benefits that you need. Our attorneys will work with you on your application to prevent errors and ensure you send in the right documentation with it. We know why most applications are denied by the Social Security Administration and we can help you avoid common mistakes.
Our attorneys can provide assistance and representation through the following steps:
- First time application: It helps to have assistance from experienced attorneys before turning in your application for SSD and SSI benefits because almost two-thirds of them are denied. Our attorneys will help you complete your application and avoid common mistakes to increase your chance of being approved.
- Reconsideration: If your application is denied, we will request reconsideration by filing a note of intent to appeal. Our attorneys will also be present when you meet with the reconsideration review officer.
- Hearing: If you have a hearing regarding your application, our attorneys can represent you and present your case to the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ).
- Appeals: We can file an appeal on your behalf and represent you as your case is reviewed by the Appeals Council.
- Federal appeal: The Federal appeal process is a highly complex process. Our attorneys will represent you through this process to help obtain your SDD benefits.
