When your Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income application has been denied twice—the initial application and the follow-up request for reconsideration—it’s time to request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). The ALJ works for the Social Security Administration and makes decisions on disability claims at the hearings level.
It’s critical at this stage of the appeals process to have a disability advocate at your side who can help you get the results you want. That’s because, if you are denied your benefits at the hearing, the next step is to go before the Appeals Council, where only about 2-3% of appeals applicants will win. From there, you’ll then need to file a case with the federal district court, an expensive and time-consuming process that you don’t want to get mired in.
