Applying for Social Security Disability Benefits

The application process for receiving SSD benefits is usually very long and complicated to deal with. There are several stages of the process and many options are available to those who are applying. However, it can be difficult to sort through all the legal aspects, restrictions, and policies regarding SSD benefits on your own. Fortunately, our Loveland SSD lawyers have handled many cases similar to yours and we know the SSD laws, policies, and procedures better than you know yourself.

These are steps for the Social Security Disability benefits application:

  • Submit your application online, over the phone, or through an attorney.
  • Your claim will then be reviewed by the Disability Services Department.
  • If it’s approved, congratulations. If not, you can request for reconsideration.
  • If reconsideration approves it, good. If not, you can request an ALJ hearing.
  • If the ALJ approves it, congrats! If not, you can request a review from the Appeals Council.
  • The Appeals Council may approve it, deny it, or pass it back to another ALJ for a second hearing.
  • If approved, you did it! If not, you can file a civil lawsuit with the Federal Court.

Why Use us?

We have extensive experience with handling these types of cases and know the ins and outs of applying for SSD benefits. We could greatly increase your odds of having your application approved by developing a well-organized, comprehensive, and persuasive argument for your case. With a little bit of your help, we will compile all the case data and evidence, and present it so that you won’t have to worry about the legal burden any longer.

From Happy Clients

  • The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made.

    “The Busch Law Firm was the best choice I could have made. Brett Busch was a top-notch Attorney and represented me during the three year legal process with Workers comp as well as a personal injury claim. During these three years he guided me through the process to maximize my claim. He kept me well informed and was prompt to return my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern. Deidra Deery , Brett's Paralegal at the Firm , was more than helpful anytime I needed assistance. As a matter of fact everyone I spoke to at the Busch Law Firm was kind and caring any time I was in contact with. This Law Firm and Brett were always professional and most importantly effective in resolving my legal issues.”

  • I 100% recommend this firm.

    “Where do I begin? The process is unbelievably long. That said, I can't imagine doing this without legal representation and assistance. I applied for Social Security Disability benefits in July 2009. I was denied by Social Security in October 2009. I immediately filed an appeal online. By the time I heard back from Social Security in December 2010 I had pretty much forgotten about my appeal. My case for appeal was set for June 1, 2011. Social Security said I could represent myself, or obtain a private practice lawyer or a lawyer from a pool of government lawyers in Fort Collins. Needless to say, I was so overwhelmed I was not very optimistic about any option. I procrastinated until March, when I attempted to contact the government agency in Fort Collins. We played phone tag, and I was not impressed. I just happened to see in the Loveland Reporter Herald "Mark Your Calendar" section, that there was a seminar on options for your Social Security appeal. I went, even though I was told the seminar was full, because time was quickly slipping away. Words, though, don't describe my relief to find that the meeting answered all my questions. There was no pressure to sign up with Busch Law Offices. Brett patiently answered every question, and was very kind and empathetic. Because my hearing was quickly coming up, I received an immediate meeting with Brett. Here is the most important thing: I don't look ill or disabled. He took the time to read my medical reports, he asked pertinent questions and he listened. When we agreed to work together, he again patiently and simply explained everything before I signed. There were no surprises. Lynne, his assistant, quickly organized all my medical records. Whenever I called, her calming and cheerful voice eased my mind. If she did not have the answer to questions, she conferred with Brett and always returned phone calls in a very timely manner. Brett sent me to the proper physicians. The day before my hearing, we spent almost three hours going over reports, facts, how to answer questions at the hearing, even how to dress. We were very well prepared. The day of my appeal, Brett calmed me by talking to me about anything but the hearing. It worked. He presented my case simply and efficiently. I was at ease, and we won. On a personal note, Brett is an exceptional young lawyer. Social Security Disability is a very difficult and emotional arena. Brett worked and spoke like a seasoned veteran. As for Lynne, she is simply the best. I 100% recommend this firm.”
