Reconsideration and Hearings

Disability Lawyers in West Tennessee

Requests for reconsideration and hearings before a judge

It is not uncommon for an application for social security benefits to be denied by the Social Security Administration. When that happens, the Social Security Administration has a procedure you can follow to challenge and appeal the decision. However, the process is complicated and is best understood with the assistance of an attorney skilled in the laws and regulations that apply to Social Security disability.

In Jackson, Tennessee, the lawyers of Byrd & Byrd have years of experience in handling Social Security claims and appeals. As skilled Tennessee disability lawyers, they routinely handle all aspects of the appeals process. When you put yourself in their steady hands, you are significantly improving the odds of success for your appeal.

The help you need when you are denied benefits

Once you are denied benefits, the first step in the appeals process is to file a request for reconsideration with the Social Security Administration. A Tennessee disability lawyer at Byrd & Byrd, Attorneys at Law, PLLC knows how to complete the required forms and file them in accordance with all deadlines. If the Administration makes a determination be made to stop your benefits, the firm is also ready to assist you.

Some of the reasons to request a reconsideration of your claim include the following:

  • The condition is more severe than determined.
  • The condition has lasted longer than expected.
  • The condition has worsened since the decision.
  • The condition became disabling earlier than determined.
  • Another condition developed that complicates the first condition.

If you should once again be denied benefits after your reconsideration, you are entitled to further appeals. The next step is to seek an administrative hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Other avenues of appeal are available once you exhaust all these administrative remedies. A Jackson social security disability attorney at our firm is ready to explain your options to you and can provide advice in plain English about how the laws apply to your situation.
