Social Security Appeals Lawyer in Arkansas
Has Your Disability Claim Been Denied?
Social Security Disability Benefits (SSD) and
Supplemental Security Income (SSI), it is not uncommon that first claims are denied or continued benefits
are disallowed. At the Law Office of Mike Angel, I work hard to ensure
you understand what your options are and how we can work together to obtain
the benefits you require. With the use of a qualified
Arkansas social security disability attorney, work can begin right away on the appeal of your denied claim.
Any denied claim can be appealed if it is done within a specified amount
of time. The appeals process has four levels that I am fully prepared
to go through, should it become necessary. The levels are:
- A complete review of your case called a "reconsideration"
- Hearing before an administrative law judge
- A review by the Social Security's Appeal Council
- Filing of a lawsuit in Federal Court in order to resolve your case
I will be with you each step of the way, working towards the end goal of
getting the benefits you deserve.
The Appeals Process
The first step of your appeal, the reconsideration, reviews all of the
original evidence in your case plus any additional evidence that is provided.
The reviewed is undertaken by an individual who was not part of the original
decision on your claim. If your claim is stilldenied, a hearing can be requested on the matter. It will take place before an
administrative law judge who was not involved in the original decision
or reconsideration of your case. At the hearing, the judge can question
you or any witnesses on your behalf and I can represent you at this hearing.
If the hearing is not satisfactory in getting your benefits approved we
can request a review by the Appeals Council. There are various options
that this council has in deciding to take your case and they may send
your case back to the administrative law judge for further review. The
final step, if necessary, is to file a lawsuit on your behalf in the proper
federal district court. Your benefits are important to you and that is
why I use my decades of legal experience to pursue the outcome you desire.
