The Application Process

When you are unable to earn a living due to a disability, you may find yourself stressing over how to pay your bills. Social Security Disability (SSD) was designed to help workers during these disheartening situations.

Due to the complexity involved with the process, first-time Social Security applicants may have an especially difficult time filing. Once you file a Social Security Disability claim, your application is sent to the processing agency for a decision. This decision may take longer than 60 days to come back.

Do You Require an Appeal?

Unfortunately, many initial claims for SSD are denied. If you believe that your Social Security Disability status warrants benefits, Richard A. Sly will help you file an appeal. This Request for Reconsideration may give you the result you want, or you may be required to before an Administrative Law Judge for a healing.

Once your hearing has been requested, you could find yourself waiting more than 18 months to go before a judge. This wait time is often too long for clients to live with, and Mr. Sly will advocate for you to request an earlier decision.
