How Is Disability Defined?
To be eligible for SSDI benefits, you have to meet the SSA’s requirements. You must:
- Make below a certain amount per month ($1,260 as of 2020)
- Be unable to do basic tasks (Difficulty walking, lifting, etc.)
- Have a medical condition on the SSA’s list of disabling conditions or one that’s just as severe
- Be unable to carry out any of your previous work
- Be unable to gain employment in a different field
How Does the Appeals Process Work?
A denied claim isn’t the end of the road. You can still appeal and recover the benefits you deserve. Here’s how the process works:
Our attorneys can file a reconsideration request with the SSA. The request is then reviewed by an examiner who was not involved in the initial denial.
If the reconsideration request is denied, our attorneys can request a judicial hearing. At this point, you may be asked to provide additional information relevant to your case.
- Appeals Council
Our attorneys can request an appeal from the Social Security Appeals Council. The council will review your appeal and either make a ruling or move the case to a judge for further review.
- Federal Court
If the council doesn’t rule in your favor, we can file a lawsuit in federal court. Our attorneys won’t settle for less than you deserve, and will do whatever it takes to secure a favorable outcome.
