Oklahoma City Social Security Disability Appeals Lawyers
If you applied for benefits and received a Notice of Disapproved Claim, Notice of Reconsideration or Notice of Federal Reviewing Official Decision and disagree with the decision reached in regard to your claim, you can file an appeal in various ways.
You can file an appeal using the internet, call your local Social Security Office or print and fill out the necessary paperwork and mail it in or deliver it in person to your local Social Security Office. To initially file a disability appeal, you are not required to work with an attorney. When you have an attorney at your side, however, you can be sure that your interests and rights will be protected so you have the best opportunity of having your appeal approved at this point.
How do I file an appeal?
To properly file a disability appeal, you will need to complete a disability report and sign medical release forms along with your request for an appeal. The Social Security Administration will then send your case to the State Disability Determination Services Office, where a complete review of medical records will be completed and a new decision will be made regarding your case.
You will be notified in writing in regard to their decision. There are further steps that can be taken in the appeal process if you are still not satisfied with the outcome of your claim, a hearing, appeals council review and then a district court case. You will need to hire a lawyer if you reach the district court case.
If you received a notice that your Social Security Disability claim was denied, you have right to appeal this decision. An experienced Oklahoma City Social Security Disability lawyer at our firm can help you file an appeal to seek another chance at being approved for the benefits you need.
