How to Appeal a Social Security Disability Denial throughout California, Nevada and the West

If your Social Security Disability (SSD) application has been denied, you are not alone. Social Security Disability applications get denied all the time for a number of different reasons. These range from incomplete information on the application to error by the Disability Determination Services specialist who reviewed the application. Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has implemented a set of formal procedures for appealing Social Security Disability claim denials. If your Social Security Disability claim has been denied, the attorneys in the Oakland and Sacramento law offices of David Allen & Associates can represent you in the appeal process.

We Will Fight for the Benefits You Deserve

While we strongly recommend hiring an attorney to assist you in the Social Security Disability application process, we even more strongly recommend that you hire a lawyer for your Social Security appeal. You only have a limited amount of time to file your appeal, you must file it properly, and you must present sufficient information on appeal to overturn the initial denial of your claim. If you come up short on any of these requirements, your appeal will be unsuccessful – and you may even lose the right to file additional appeals.

Our Social Security Disability claim denial lawyers throughout California, Nevada and the West have decades of experience successfully representing individuals throughout the Western United States in the Social Security Disability appeal process. We regularly represent clients at all four appellate levels:

  • Reconsideration – During reconsideration, your application gets re-assigned to a different specialist at Disability Determination Services. You also have the opportunity to present additional evidence in support of your claim.
  • Administrative Hearing – If your application gets denied on reconsideration, the next step is to request an administrative hearing. This is a “quasi-judicial” proceeding during which you and your attorney have the opportunity to argue your case and present additional evidence to an administrative law judge (ALJ) employed by the Social Security Administration.
  • Appeals Council – If the ALJ decides against you, the third level of appeal is at the Social Security Administration’s Appeals Council. The Appeals Council will review the ALJ’s decision and either affirm it, reverse it, or remand the case for further consideration.
  • Federal Court – Finally, if you lose before the Appeals Council, you have the right to file a lawsuit in federal district court. With offices in Sacramento, Oakland, Stockton and Las Vegas, David Allen & Associates frequently advocates for workplace injury victims in federal courts throughout the Western United States.
