Federal Court Review Proceedings

Receiving the Social Security Disability Insurance that you have worked for years to obtain can be a taxing process. But the coverage you deserve to receive may be crucial to your continued health, and certainly worth the effort. The third and final level of appeal in a Social Security civil action is determined by the Federal district court in your judicial district. Indiana is presided over by the seventh circuit of Federal courts.

Your Social Security Disability Insurance appeal deserves to be heard at the highest level if you have been denied up to this point of the process. With the help of an experienced Social Security Disability Insurance lawyer, you may be able to receive all of the insurance coverage that you deserve.

Final Appeal

The third and final level of appeals in a Social Security Disability Insurance case is handled in a federal district court. These types of appeals are filed as civil suit cases and can be filed in the district court that represents your home residence or primary place of business. To file this type of case, an applicant must submit a copy of his or her complaints and the summons issued by the court to the Social Security Administration’s Office of General Counsel. The following facts about the appeals process may help give a petitioner some perspective on federal district courts:
