Filing Request for Reconsiderations (if applicable) or Request for a Hearing
In most cases, if you receive a letter from Social Security denying your claim, you have only sixty (60) days to file an appeal. There are a few different ways to file an appeal but it is important to contact your attorney immediately to make sure they also received the denial letter and to give them time to file the appeal. In some states, like Tennessee, you must file for Reconsideration after you receive your initial denial from Social Security. However, Alabama is known as a "prototype state" and you may request a hearing with an administrative law judge immediately after receiving your initial denial. There are always exceptions and differing circumstances that can affect the best course of action for you to take so that is where a Social Security attorney can help.
You may file an appeal of most denials by going to your local Social Security Office and informing them in person of your desire to pursue an appeal. If you are unsure of where your local Social Security office is located or what their phone number is, you may enter the terms; "Social Security Office Locator" in a search engine and it should allow you the option to enter your zip code and find your local office. If you are denied, you may also call the Social Security Administration and inform them of your wish to file an appeal and they will tell you what you need to do next. The third option is to enter an appeal through Social Security's i-appeal portal that allows you to file your appeal on Social Security's website.
If you have a hearing with a judge and are denied, there will be a different process that you have to follow. Also, if you are terminated from receiving Social Security benefits, time is of the essence and you should contact an attorney immediately to ensure the you take advantage of all possible benefits available.
Put Your Best Foot Forward and Hire an Attorney for Help with your Initial Application
Many claimant choose to try to file their application on their own before hiring an attorney. This may be because they believe that they can do it on their own or it may be that it was difficult to find an attorney that was willing to file the initial application. Currently, initial denials in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee far exceed the initial approvals. My office handles this paperwork on a daily basis and we would be happy to help guide you through this often confusing paperwork. We are also able to help ensure that all important medical evidence is included in your initial paperwork to give you the greatest chance at an initial approval. This also puts the attorney in the position to appeal any initial denial immediately and thereby reserve your spot in the line for a hearing. Put your best foot forward and hire an attorney.
