Clients Discouraged by a Denied Claim

For many of our clients who come to see us, the process of obtaining for SSDI benefits is a bureaucratic nightmare. Complex paperwork must be filled out with precision and accuracy. From there, you put your fate in the hands of a state-level disability examiner who could very well deny your claim. That gives you a limited time to file a Social Security disability appeal after a denial.

That is where the attorneys at Crowe & Shanahan come in to help you. Whether your appeal involves a reconsideration, an administrative law judge hearing or an appearance before the Appeals Council we are at your side. Do not be discouraged. Do not lose hope.

If the administrative law judge denies a claim, there is one last level of appeal within the Social Security Administration, known as the Appeals Council. Like most other Social Security appeals, this must be filed within 60 days of the date of the judge's decision. It is very important to be fully prepared and have all possible medical evidence ready at the hearing before the administrative law judge - an applicant cannot just fix problems with the Appeals Council. They may the hearing decision, reverse the local judge's decision outright, or send the case back for a new hearing. Taking a case to the Appeals Council is a requirement for the last possible appeal, filing a lawsuit in United States District Court against the Commissioner of Social Security.
