What steps are involved in the appeals process?

Many applicants for Social Security have to go through the appeals process because their initial application is rejected by the Social Security Administration. The appeals process can vary in length, depending on specific cases, but generally it involves the following steps:

  • Contacting an attorney to review your case
  • Discovering and correcting the reason for rejection
  • Setting up a hearing with a judge to appeal
  • Persisting in appeal

These steps are all very important aspects of the appeals process, and are handled uniquely in each case. To better understand your own situation and options, contact an Indiana long-term disability attorney of the Hankey Law Office, today at (800) 520-3633.
