As we explain below, the options available to you will depend on whether you have filed your application or you have appealed an initial denial of your application.
If you have not filed your application, an attorney can help you to submit one that is correct and complete. Providing the Social Security Administration (SSA) and Disability Determination Services (DDS) with all of the information it needs – particularly medical evidence – can avoid delays.
In certain situations, the SSA will expedite a decision on your application or allow you to receive benefits while your case is being reviewed. An attorney can help you to fill out special forms that may be needed or notify the SSA that you qualify for an expedited decision.
The programs that are available include:
If your initial application for SSD benefits was denied, you can submit a Request for Reconsideration within 60 days from the denial date. If your claim is denied again, you can request a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).
The problem is that it can take many months for your hearing to be scheduled. Several more months can pass for the ALJ to make a decision and for your claim to be processed.
However, an attorney can try to speed up the process by taking steps such as:
If the attorney-advisor agrees that you are entitled to a “fully favorable” decision, your benefits application will be granted. If not, then your case would proceed to a hearing before an ALJ.
