Indianapolis Long Term Disability Claims Appeals Lawyers
Ideally, the process of filing for long-term disability benefits through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) would be simple and efficient. Unfortunately, thousands of disabled Americans struggle to get the benefits they need and deserve. Over 60% of initial long-term disability claims will be denied, requiring applicants to appeal before a judge at a hearing before they can be granted benefits.
Fortunately, being represented by a committed Indianapolis disability lawyer can help increase a claimant’s chances of making a successful appeal. For more information, call the Hankey Law Office at (800) 520-3633.
At the Hearing
Anyone who is denied long-term disability benefits has up to 60 days to request a hearing, which will be overseen by the government’s Office of Hearings and Appeals. At this hearing, claimants have the opportunity to make their cases before an Administrative Law Judge, who will decide whether to grant benefits. Claimants are usually informed of the judge’s decision in a letter some time after the hearing.
At the hearing, the judge will review the details of your case along with any new information you or your attorney wish to submit. You, your healthcare providers, and other witnesses may all be asked questions under oath. You may also ask witnesses to speak on your behalf.
