Detroit, Michigan (MI) Social Security
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is designed to help people who are out of work due to injury or illness by providing them with financial assistance. However, the majority of applicants are initially denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA).
You should know that a denied application isn’t the end of the road. Morgan & Morgan can guide you through the appeals process and give you the best chance to recover the compensation you deserve.

Morgan & Morgan
How Does the SSA Define Disability?
The SSA has a five-step process for determining whether applicants are eligible for benefits. You must:
- Make less than $1,260 a month (as of 2020)
- Have limited ability to do basic work such as lifting and walking
- Have a condition listed on the SSA’s list of disabling medical conditions or one that’s as severe as those that are
- Be unable to perform any of your past work
- Be unable to obtain gainful employment in another field or capacity
What Is the Appeals Process?
Even if your claim has been denied, we may be able to help you recover the benefits you’re owed. The appeals process works as follows:
Step 1: Reconsideration
We can file a request for reconsideration to be reviewed by an SSA claims examiner who was not a part of the initial ruling.
Step 2: Hearing
If your request for reconsideration is unsuccessful, we can request a hearing before a judge. Beforehand, you may be asked to provide additional evidence or clarify information about your claim.
Step 3: Appeals Council
If the judge doesn’t rule in your favor, we can request an appeal with the Social Security Appeals Council. They will either review your case and make a determination or return it to a judge for further review.
Step 4: Federal Court
If the Appeals Council chooses not to review your case or rules against you, we can file a lawsuit in federal district court.
