Social Security Disability Denials in Orleans Parish
Are you wondering how long it will be before SSDI or SSI benefits are approved? And what happens if a SSDI benefits claim is denied? Most Orleans Parish SSDI applicants have to wait up to a year due to a backlog of disability hearings and the large volume of applicants. Additionally, almost 60% of initial Social Security Disability claims are denied which means that you may have to appeal a SSDI denial. That appeal is a Request for Reconsideration, at which point about 30% of claims are approved. Benefits claims that are not approved at that point, request a hearing to go before a judge who will decide if your SSI or SSDI benefits in Orleans Parish are going to be paid. This entire process can take up to a year and while you are not required to have legal representation, a Muse benefits claim attorney in Orleans Parish, LA can increase your chances of getting your claim approved. The exact time you will have to wait for an answer on your Social Security Disability claim hearing depends on the area in which you live. The ODAR office in Orleans Parish, Louisiana, (Office of Disability Adjudication and Review) schedules disability hearings for the Social Security offices in DeRidder, Houma, Lake Charles, Morgan City, New Orleans and New Orleans, West Bank.
