The Process of Applying for Social Security Disability

A Favorable Verdict Often Requires Three Successive Steps

Applying for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is often a three-step process. An experienced attorney can offer the guidance that you need to understand and navigate the legal system. If you've been seriously injured on the job in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont, Brooks Law can help you secure the Social Security benefits that you need.

Here's how the process works:

  • Initial application — Can be submitted online, over the phone, at your local Social Security office, or by your attorney.
  • Reconsideration — Most initial applications are denied, at which point your attorney can file an appeal for reconsideration.
  • Hearing — If benefits are denied a second time, as they often are, your attorney can now appeal for a hearing to take place before a judge.

At the hearing, your case will be reviewed a third time, but the judge is not bound to uphold any of the prior rulings. You will give personal testimony regarding the nature of your injuries and their impact on your ability to work. Your chances of securing a favorable ruling increase significantly when you have a knowledgeable and experienced advocate by your side — which is precisely what you'll find at Brooks Law.
