What Happens After the Social Security Disability Benefits Application is Completed
The initial review by the SSA usually takes about 4 months. When the process is completed, the applicant is sent a letter advising if the applicant is eligible to receive social security disability benefits.
If someone is initially denied when applying for SSDB, the next step is to file a request for reconsideration. If the applicant’s request for reconsideration is denied, the next step would be to file a request for a Hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.
If your Social Security disability application is denied after all initial efforts and you would like FOA to represent you, it is important that you call at (855) 314-1395 immediately upon getting the denial letter. The hearing must be requested not more than 60 days after the date of the denial letter. Our Social Security disability attorneys will review your denial and decide if the law firm is able to file a Request for Hearing and become your representative.
