Do Not Give Up On Your SSDI Claim. Call Shawn Taylor, PLLC.

The first time you apply for disability benefits, the chances are it will be denied. This does not mean your claim is no longer worth pursuing. The majority of people are denied on their first application.

At Shawn Taylor, PLLC, we have helped thousands of SSDI claimants successfully appeal their initial denied claim. Call us at 304-932-4619 and schedule a free consultation.

Ways To Appeal A Denial

There are four levels of appealing a denied Social Security Disability benefits claim. They are:

  • Reconsideration
  • Hearing
  • Appeals council

The reconsideration happens right after your initial denied claim, without you submitting any other evidence. Your application will be reviewed by another employee of the Social Security Administration.

The hearing is the best chance to get benefits on appeal. The hearing is a meeting with an administrative law judge who will ask you questions about your health, medical conditions and work limitations. It is a chance to meet face-to-face with someone and provide evidence for your eligibility.

The appeals council will decide cases upon a denial from an administrative law judge. It can either deny a request for review, decide your case on its own or send it back to an administrative law judge for review.
