How to get disability benefits?
How to get disability benefits? Social security has a rather complicated application process. Sometimes people refer to it as a little bit of a labyrinth, if you will. You start off with an initial application. You can file that application online or you can go to a local office or you can actually call an 800 number, but there is a little bit of work involved in actually filing a disability application.
Once you apply for disability, often times people are denied, and you’ll have to file a request for reconsideration if your initial application is denied.
If your request for reconsideration is denied, you then have to file an appeal that’s called a request for hearing. If your request for hearing is denied, you then have to file a request for review with the Appeals Council and on from that, you would actually go to the United States District Court.
The application process can be complicated, it can be difficult and that’s why we at Marasco & Nesselbush are here ready to help you every step of the way. If you think that you need help with either filing an application or if you’ve been denied, don’t give up.
Call us and let us help you file the appeal.
