Chicago Attorneys for Social Security Disability
Illinois Long Term Disability Lawyer
A hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) can be requested if your application for social security disability has been denied. The Administrative Law Judge will conduct an independent review of your social security disability claim. Enlisting the assistance of an attorney for social security disability can be incredibly helpful when preparing for the review and disability hearing before the Administrative Law Judge.
With more than 14 years of experience as attorneys for social security disability clients, Ankin Law Offices, LLC has the skill and knowledge necessary to prepare you for your social security disability hearing and to proactively advocate on your behalf at the hearing. If your social security disability claim has been denied, contact one of our Chicago long-term disability attorneys to discuss how we can help your file a Request for Reconsideration and prepare you for your social security disability hearing.
ALJ’s Review of Your Claim
In some cases, the ALJ may respond to a written argument submitted by an attorney for social security disability on your behalf without conducting a hearing. In other situations, the ALJ may request a social security disability hearing at which you and your attorney for social security disability must be present. A medical and/or vocational expert may also be requested to be present at the hearing. You and your social security disability attorney will have the opportunity to argue your case before the ALJ and to cross examine any witnesses and experts.
If the Administrative Law Judge denies your social security disability claim, you may request further review by the Appeals Council. If the Appeals Council denies your Request for Review, you may appeal your social security disability claim to the federal court system. All appeals of claims decisions must be filed within 60 days from the date the notice has been received. Notices of decisions are presumed to be received within five days of the date of the notice.
