Loveland SSD Lawyers
Help with Reconsiderations
The application process for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can be extremely complicated and time-consuming without the help of experienced legal counsel. Applicants will typically hear back within two to four months for the initial stage of the process, but the appeal proceedings can drag on for years. The reconsideration stage directly follows the initial claim filing if the initial claim is denied. When you are notified of your claim’s denial via mail, you are given 60 days to request a reconsideration of your claim. This is essentially the same process as the initial stage, but the claim is reviewed by different employees in the Social Security Administration.

These are the steps of the SSD benefits application process:
- Submit your initial claim to the Social Security Administration
- If it’s denied, you can request for reconsideration
- If they reconsider and deny you again, you can request an ALJ hearing
- If they accept, you will have a formal hearing and present supporting evidence
- If the judge denies your claim, you can request a review from the Appeals Council
- If the Council denies you claim, you can file a civil suit with the Federal Court
Maximize Your Chances
One of the most helpful things you can do for your case is to thoroughly document your illness or injury. Seek medical help and documentation from a licensed medical professional so you have ample evidence supporting your claim in the application process. Also be sure to observe and document any changes in your condition, as the process is typically long and may be influenced by a change in your condition.
If you apply for reconsideration, there are several additional forms that must be filled out and submitted. These forms can be difficult to interpret, and confusing for those who are unfamiliar with this area of law. Our Loveland SSD lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of these additional forms, and all other aspects of the application process. Let us take the legal burden off your shoulders and fight for the benefits that you deserve.
