Wilkes County Social Security Disability Appeal Lawyers
Have you applied for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits and been turned down? Do not despair. The overwhelming majority of SSD claims are turned down at the initial application stages. Your best chance of obtaining benefits is through the SSD appeals process.
At Vannoy, Colvard, Triplett & Vannoy, P.L.L.C., we handle SSD appeals at all levels, from written requests for reconsideration to federal court appeals. Our lawyers provide experienced SSD representation to clients throughout Wilkes County and across North Carolina.
The SSD Appeals Process
Our attorneys can help you through all stages of the SSD appeals process, including:
- Request for reconsideration: If your initial application is denied, we can draft and file this written appeal, which must be filed within 60 days of the rejection of the initial application.
- Administrative law judge (ALJ) hearing: If your request for reconsideration is denied, we can request a hearing with an administrative law judge and represent you in that hearing. The ALJ hearing allows you to present yourself as a living, breathing human to an SSA official, not just a number on a sheet of paper.
- Appeals Council: If the ALJ rejects your claim, you can appeal the SSA Appeals Council for a new ALJ hearing.
- Federal court appeal: If the Appeals Council denies your claim, the last resort is a federal court appeal.
The SSD appeals process may seem difficult, but we will do everything we can to make it easier to bear. We have helped numerous people through the SSD process and can give you the best chance of obtaining the benefits you deserve.
