Understanding the Social Security Disability Process
You should know from the start that the vast majority of initial claims for SSDI and SSI benefits are denied. Some applicants simply give up at this point, not understanding that many appeals are successful. While the original application process is fairly straightforward, the appeals process is considerably more complex and clients benefit greatly from the assistance and counsel of an experienced Social Security disability attorney.
Depending on several factors, getting the acceptance or denial of an initial claim to Social Security disability benefits can take up to several months, and the appeals process can take considerably longer. The appeals system is backlogged with cases and it can take many more months to even get an administrative law judge to hear your case at trial.
