Navigating the Appeals Process
If an appeal is your next step, then an attorney can certainly be of assistance in navigating the four potential appeal processes: Reconsideration, a Hearing, the Social Security Appeals Council, and Federal Court.
- A Reconsideration appeal is not often successful, with less than 20 percent of claims being approved in this process. If this step is not selected, then claimants may then either decide to submit an initial claim again or request a Hearing.
- At a Hearing, claimants have the opportunity for their case to be presented before a judge. Here, testimonies, medical experts, and other admissible items are presented. This step results in a successful outcome close to half of the time for claimants.
- If a claim is denied during a Hearing, then the next option is to stand before a Social Security Appeals Council and request their review of the ruling made by the judge at the Hearing. Here, the Council will collectively approve the claim or deny it.
- In the final process, and only after a denial of your claim from the Social Security Appeals Council, a lawsuit can be filed in Federal District Court. While this process is rarely ruled in the favor of the claimant, it also mandates an attorney.
