Social Security disability claims go through a lengthy administrative process. A claimant must first make an initial filing. If that is denied, the claimant must file a request for reconsideration. If denied at reconsideration, the claimant then has the option of requesting a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ).
Not all ALJ’s are created equal. The Social Security Administration publishes data on disposition rates for ALJ’s. Some of the ALJ’s approve less than 15% of the cases before them. If your claim has been denied at the ALJ stage, it may be that you were assigned to a judge with a low approval rating. Denial at the ALJ stage does not mean your case is over.
Have your ALJ decision reviewed by Bemis, Roach & Reed. The attorneys at Bemis, Roach & Reed have likely handled appeals just like yours. They are familiar with the ALJ’s and can let you know if you are likely to succeed on appeal. They can also assist you in the event that you choose to file a new claim rather than appeal the ALJ denial.
