The Social Security Appeal Process and Filing a Request For Reconsideration

CaveyLaw.com > Tampa Social Security Disability Lawyer > The Social Security Appeal Process and Filing a Request For Reconsideration

Over 66% of Initial Social Security Disability applications are denied. Don’t walk away from valuable monthly income and lifetime medical care just because you were denied. Most people are denied! It’s time to stand up for your rights and file a Request For Reconsideration. Get answers to these questions:

1. Why Was My Initial Social Security Disability Claim Denied?

Learn about the 16 different reasons your Initial Social Security Disability Application was denied and what you need to do next.

2. How Long Do I Have To File A Request For Reconsideration?

Don’t delay. Waiting more than 60 days after the date of the denial to file a Request for Reconsideration can cost you time, money and even disqualify you for benefits.

3. How Do I File My Request For Reconsideration?

You can file your Request For Reconsideration three ways. Learn which way is right for you.

4. What Information Do I Need to File A Request For Reconsideration?

More paperwork. It isn’t as much as you think, but picking the wrong family member or friend to provide the Social Security Administration with information can haunt you.

5. How Long Does It Take To Get A Decision On the Request For Reconsideration?

IF YOUR INITIAL APPLICATION IS DENIED, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO APPEAL BY FILING A REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION; IT MUST BE FILED WITHIN 60 DAYS OF THE DATE OF THE DENIAL LETTER. YOUR APPEAL WILL REQUIRE YOU TO COMPLETE AND SUBMIT EVEN MORE FORMS.

IT’S A NO-BRAINER DECISION

The Social Security Administration (SSA) deliberately made the claims process hard and discouraging.

Your Request for Reconsideration goes back to the same Disability Determination Services (DDS) office that denied your Initial Application. So don’t be surprised if it’s denied: only 12% of Requests for Reconsideration are granted. More applicants give up here. Of those denied, 30% give up, and 70% appeal and file a Request for Hearing.

This is not the time to quit. At the Hearing level, the odds for represented applicants swing in your favor. At a hearing, Administrative Law Judges award over 66% of Social Security Disability claims.

THE LESSON: DON’T GIVE UP!

HOW SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY ATTORNEY NANCY L. CAVEY CAN HELP YOU FILE YOUR REQUEST FOR RECONSIDERATION

Do you remember the list of possible reasons your Initial Application was denied? Nancy Cavey can identify what was missing from your Initial Application that caused SSA to deny your claim, determine what additional information is needed to win your claim, and properly prepare the necessary forms.  

NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP!

Patience is required. If you are denied, it’s time to get help from Social Security Attorney Nancy L. Cavey, who can help you get the Social Security disability benefits you deserve.

If you get a Notice of Denial, call Nancy L. Cavey for a free, no-obligation consultation to learn how you can get your benefits by filing a Request For Reconsideration.

She doesn’t get paid an attorney fee unless she wins your case. And if she wins, the Social Security Administration determines her attorney’s fee. That fee is paid out of the past due benefits you are awarded.

6. What Benefits Do I Get?

It’s hard to put a price on the lifetime Social Security disability benefits and medical care you are entitled to. Everyone’s situation is different. But as of 2010, an advocacy group that has worked for older Americans for more than three decades — The National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare — estimated that the Social Security disability protection for a young disabled worker with a spouse and two children was more than $465,000.
