SSDI Appeals Lawyer | Helping Clients in NJ through the Appeals Process
Being denied SSD benefits can feel like the end of the road. With a large number of claims denied at the initial or reconsideration stages of the process, you are not alone if your claim has been denied. All it takes is one small mistake or missed deadline. With more thorough preparation, you can make sure your appeal is given proper consideration.
There are still plenty of opportunities for you to get the benefits you need, but you need to pay careful attention during the appeals process to minimize the chances of a denial. With over 30 years of handling Social Security appeals, we know how to prepare your claim properly. We work closely with medical personnel to get the information necessary to demonstrate the physical and mental restrictions and limitations of your disability.
The Appeals Process
We help our clients prepare their initial application so that it has the greatest chance of being approved the first time. In many cases, however, it will be necessary to use one or more stages of the appeals process. Our SSDI attorney can prepare you for and represent you at each stage:
- Reconsideration Appeal: If your initial claim has been denied, our competent legal team can file a reconsideration appeal on your behalf. If your claim is appealed at this stage, you should receive the SSDI benefits you deserve and need.
- Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) hearings: The majority of Social Security disability claims are won at ALJ hearings. While it is not your last chance to get the benefits you deserve, it is your best chance. Ms. Mazur is a former Social Security Staff attorney. You want skilled representation and an attorney who can effectively present your case to the administrative law judge. We have the experience to do just that.
- Appeals Council Hearings: If your claim for Social Security disability benefits is denied by an administrative law judge at your ALJ hearing, you can appeal the decision to the Social Security Appeals Council.
- Federal Court Appeals: This is the last step in the appeals process, however, if your claim has been denied by the Appeals Council, you still have a right to file a federal court appeal. That said, since this is your last chance at attaining the benefits you need, you can’t proceed without a competent attorney who is well-versed in the law. Fortunately, you’ve come to the right place.
