What are SSD Benefits? 

The Social Security Administration (SSA) administers a federal benefits program known as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSD). SSD provides benefits in the form of financial assistance to qualifying individuals with disabilities who have paid into the Social Security program throughout the course of their working life and by earning a sufficient number of “work credits”. Work credits are earned by paying FICA taxes, which usually are deducted out of an individual’s payroll check.

The Five Main Stages to a Social Security Disability Claim

SSD applications proceed through various stages. There are five main stages to a Social Security Disability claim, which include the following: 

  1. Initial Application
  2. Reconsideration Appeal
  3. Administrative Law Judge Hearing Appeal
  4. Appeals Council Appeal
  5. Federal Court Appeal

The SSA’s administrative appeals operation is one of the largest administrative judicial systems in the world. In fact, the SSA issues more than a half a million hearing and appeal dispositions each year. 

How Nyman Turkish Can Help You Appeal a Denied SSD Claim

Our Law Firm can help regardless of what stage of the process you are in, and especially, if you are seeking an appeal of your denied claim. 

Request for Reconsideration and/or ALJ Hearing

If the decision on your Initial Application is unfavorable, our experienced Social Security Disability attorneys can file a request for reconsideration on your behalf to have your case reviewed again. If needed, we can also file for a hearing before an administrative law judge and we will appear with you in court to verbally present your case.  

Appeals Council

If an administrative law judge denies your claim, we can help you request a review by the Appeals Council. The Appeals Council is headquartered in Falls Church, Virginia. The Appeals Council review process generally begins after an application for benefits has been denied at the hearing level or a request for a hearing has been denied. Typically, you must ask for an Appeals Council review within 60 days of receiving your hearing decision. Working with our team can ensure this important deadline is not missed.  

Federal District Court

Finally, if you disagree with the decision of the Appeals Council, or if the Appeals Council decides to not review your case, we can assist in filing a civil lawsuit in a federal district court. This is the last level of the appeals process for your SSD Claim. 

Our social security disability appeal lawyers do not back down from a challenge presented by the SSA and will work tirelessly to appeal the negative decision on your SSD claim. The lengthy appeals process can be complicated and is very time-sensitive.  If you have already received a denial on your claim, call Nyman Turkish help you with your SSD appeal today.
