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.

Your Success is Our Success

With over 30 years of combined legal experience, our team of Loveland SSD attorneys know the ins and outs of the SSD application process. We are intimately familiar with all of the related policies, laws, forms, and proceedings. Our three decades of legal work allowed us to understand exactly what is being looked for on the claim applications. We will provide you with proficient, compassionate, and customized legal services that have obtained proven results for many of our clients.

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.

From Happy Clients

  • 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.”


  • There really aren’t any words to express how grateful & appreciative I am

    “There really aren’t any words to express how grateful & appreciative I am. You are the proverbial “knight in shining armor” for my son and I. Also, again thank your son for all of his hard work. Best wishes to you and your family. Have a Great New Year. ”


  • 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.”

  • You were a God send

    “Thanks Brett....what you did for is the last 2 years were a God send and above and beyond your call of duty having to put up with and all my confusion and patience on your end. You and your staff are wonderful people that I believe truly want to help and not just for the money. It feels like I list a friend after closing my case and no more communication. You will always be a good memory. If you treat everyone like you did me you will always be a success. Merry Christmas ”
