Appealing Your SSD Claims Denial
Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana disability lawyers
The Social Security Administration (SSA) often denies first-time submissions of Social Security Disability (SSD) claims, necessitating appeal. Founded in 1972, Young, Reverman & Mazzei Co., L.P.A. improves your chance of immediate approval by filing thorough, well-documented claims. If your claim is denied, we strategically approach each appeal stage to give you the greatest likelihood of success.
Information you should know about SSA appeals
Consult a qualified SSD lawyer as soon as the SSA notifies you about its denial of your claim. You typically have only 60 days from the date you receive your letter of denial to file your appeal. Our team assesses your original filing to determine how we can build a stronger argument. Our attorneys gather additional evidence to prove your case and we organize a comprehensive appeal package to bolster your claim. Throughout the process, we answer your questions and provide you with the support you need.
Stages of SSD appeal
We handle each stage of your SSD appeal until we obtain a just decision in your case.
- Reconsideration — Our diligent lawyers request that a person who did not participate in the first decision review your file and we submit new evidence that supports your position.
- Hearing before an administrative law judge — At a hearing before an administrative law judge, we have the opportunity to present new evidence, clarify important information and present expert testimony. If the hearing location is too far for you to travel, we can often arrange for you to appear via video conferencing.
- Review by the Social Security Appeals Council — The Appeals Council either reviews your file or sends it back to the administrative law judge for further review. It can also deny your request, in which case we seek relief in federal court.
- Federal court review — If you have not received your rightful benefits, we file a lawsuit in federal court.
