Steps You Can Take
Though you’ve been denied in the past, your case is not over. Often, enlisting the help of an attorney greatly increases the chances of having your claim accepted. Attorneys can be invaluable liaisons between claimants and the judge, and at Kaplan Lawyers PC we’re ready to apply our expertise to every facet of your case. Filing for disability benefits is a long and arduous process, it helps having a team of trusted professionals fighting alongside you. Here are the phases of the process:
- The Reconsideration: Within 60 days of a denial of your original claim, you are eligible to file for a reconsideration. That means time is of the essence. An important thing to remember is that in most legal proceedings, stringent deadlines are put in place. At Kaplan Lawyers PC, we can help make sure you meet all applicable deadlines.
- The ALJ Hearing: An ALJ, or Administrative Law Judge, will then stage a hearing for your claim. We can help you present your case in front of this judge.
- The Appeals Council Review: If your claim is once again denied, we can help bring your case to appellate court. This Appeals Council will be the next body to weigh in with a decision.
- The Federal Court Review: The final option is taking your case to Federal Court for review. However, if the claim is denied here, it can be re-circulated through lower levels of court.
Remember, we can help you through every stage of the legal proceedings. From obtaining and completing all necessary paperwork, to gathering evidence and witnesses, to advocating your claim in court, our services are at your disposal.
Navigating the Social Security legal landscape alone can be tricky. Retaining legal counsel will greatly enhance your ability to not only get your claim accepted, but to maximize the benefits package you receive.
