Claim Denial Hearing Process

How the Social Security Disability Appeals Process Works

It may be incredibly obvious to you and those close to you why you cannot work — for a year, for the conceivable future, or possibly the rest of your life. However, the government-employed evaluators who make decisions on Social Security Disability applications do so without meeting you, let alone feeling your pain.

Most Social Security Disability benefit claims — estimates indicate 80 percent or greater — are initially denied.

If you have received a denial letter, you must act within 60 days to have a chance of winning on appeal.

In most cases, your case will be decided by a judge at a hearing. We encourage you to contact Alder Firm, PLLC, for experienced legal representation that gives you the best possible chance of getting benefits you deserve. Call us today at +1-888-873-7173.

Caring, Informed Counsel and Solid Preparation for Your Hearing

We encourage clients to talk with us and have us file their applications, applying our extensive knowledge of the system. However, most people apply for disability on their own and look for an attorney only after being denied. Our lawyers have an outstanding track record of winning valid claims on appeal throughout Michigan. Our approach includes:

  • Ensuring that your “file” contains the most compelling available evidence supporting your qualifying medical condition and inability to work
  • Gaining a strong understanding of other factors that may have entered into your claim denial and being prepared with answers for those potential concerns
  • Sharing our decades of experience and insight into what questions you may be asked by the judge at your hearing
  • Attending the hearing with you as your attorney and advocate — a critical service national firms may not provide

Many people we help have never appeared before a judge or entered a “courtroom” setting. At the Adler Firm, PLLC, we believe in putting you as much at ease as possible and relieving the stress of this intimidating situation.
