Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration denies the vast majority of initial claims for disability benefits. Even if your application has been denied, you still have options. If you have filed an application to receive Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and have been denied, there is a specific process that an experienced lawyer can guide you through. Call my office for a free consultation to have your questions answered in greater detail.
The hearing process is the same whether you are seeking SSI or SSD benefits. It can be intimidating to have to go before a judge and hear a vocational or medical expert discuss your case. It is wise to seek the legal advice and representation of an experienced Oregon SSD hearing attorney who can guide you through the process and ensure that you are prepared every step of the way.
Portland Supplemental Security Income Attorney · Oregon SSD Hearing Lawyer
If you receive a notification that your application has been denied, the process for appealing that decision is to file a request for reconsideration of benefits.
If the request for reconsideration is denied, I can present your case in a hearing before an administrative law judge. This is called an administrative hearing. The administrative hearing can seem intimidating, but with the proper research and preparation, the process can run smoothly. In this hearing, the judge can ask questions of you, a vocational expert or a medical expert to gain a clear understanding of your case. Without an attorney on your side, you might not know the type of information the judge is looking for and how to cross-examine the experts at your hearing. Let me guide you through this process and help you receive the benefits you deserve.
