FILING A CLAIM

Filing a Social Security Claim

The initial application. The process of filing your initial SSI application is pretty simple. It is important, however, to make sure you provide all apposite documentation. We can help you with your application to increase your chances of receiving the benefits to which you are entitled.

Reconsideration. If your claim is denied initially, we can also help you file a request for reconsideration. Like the initial application process, this stage can take up to nine months, but only rarely results in a completely satisfactory decision.

Administrative hearing. If your claim is still denied at the reconsideration level, we can provide representation at a hearing before the administrative law judge. Statistics have shown that your chances of success at this hearing are significantly improved with competent representation. More cases are approved at this level than any other. We are committed to helping you pursue and obtain the benefits you deserve.
