What to do when a Social Security Disability Claim is Denied in Virginia?

Has your disability claim been denied with the Social Security Administration? Once your claim has been denied, you have 60 days to file an appeal with the social security disability administration. This can be done online or in a social security office locally.

The first appeal is called a request for a “reconsideration”. If your SSDI reconsideration appeal is denied you will need to appeal again and this time, asking for a hearing.

In this second social security appeal, the filing can take as long as one year, or even greater to get a hearing. During this stage, you will have the advantage to be represented by a lawyer who specializes in social security disability cases.

A qualified attorney will be able to help you navigate the process of filing your appeals and representing you at your hearing if you should need to have one. They will often be able to understand what kinds of evidence will need to be gathered to arrive at a good outcome for your case.
