Chicago SSDI Process Lawyer
Illinois Social Security Disability Attorney
How Dobbs Law LLC Helps You With the SSDI Process
If you have decided to pursue SSDI benefits, the process begins with the initial application, which involves filling out an extensive amount of paperwork. You then submit the paperwork to the Social Security Administration (SSA), which obtains your relevant medical records. All the information is evaluated and a determination made as to disability. At this level, the majority of claims are denied.
When we file the initial application as your attorney, we know how to respond appropriately to the Social Security Administration’s initial inquiries. We begin building your case from the initial application.
Request for Reconsideration
If your initial application is denied, you then have 60 days to request reconsideration. If you opt to request reconsideration, a different person at the SSA makes the determination. Again, at this level, the majority of claims are denied.
At the reconsideration level, we thoroughly review the Social Security decision for errors before moving for reconsideration.
If your claim is denied at the reconsideration level, you have 60 days to request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). At the hearing, in addition to your testimony, the ALJ will hear from a government vocational expert and usually a government medical expert. If you are represented by an attorney, he or she will be able to cross-examine those experts.
Provided skilled advocacy at every step
Applying for SSDI benefits can be a long and arduous process. It makes sense to have a skilled, committed advocate on your side. We have brought success to more than 3,000 disability clients in trials and hearings since 1992, the year our law offices were founded by experienced disability lawyer Kenneth P. Dobbs. We represent clients across the United States.
Our mission is simple: to fight for your right to disability benefits when you are unable to fight for them yourself.
