At Chatham Gilder Howell Pittman, we understand you’ve jumped through many hoops trying to secure Social Security Disability benefits (SSD/SSDI). You may feel a sense of hopelessness not knowing if you will ever secure the benefits you need to make ends meet. If your SSD/SSDI claim was initially denied and is at the reconsideration stage, our attorney can help file an appeal and request to have a hearing before an administrative law judge. This is the first opportunity for your case to be presented directly to the person responsible to decide if you qualify for disability benefits.
Help Handling Your SSDI or SSI Appeal
Our work in helping you secure disability benefits begins long before your hearing in front of an administrative law judge. We will take the time to make sure we have the right medical evidence illustrating a clear picture of your disability. We will work with your medical doctor and may have you see additional specialists who can provide an honest assessment of your medical condition.
Before the hearing, we are available to address your concerns and hear any additional information you may have about your condition or attempts to rejoin the workforce. We want you to feel confident knowing we will be a united front explaining to the administrative law judge why you need disability benefits.
Administrative Law Hearings
The administrative law hearings are private and fairly informal. During the administrative hearing:
- We will present your medical records
- A medical expert or vocational expert could be asked to testify to help determine if your claim is valid
- The administrative law judge will likely ask you questions about your medical condition
This is a prime opportunity for the judge to hear how your disability has threatened your ability to work. We will make sure you feel prepared for this opportunity to present your case in front of a real person who will make a ruling on your case and your SSI or SSDI appeal.
