Sacramento Social Security Disability Lawyer
Out of the total applications received by the SSA, over 60% of them will be denied on first application. The
Social Security Disability process allows you to request reconsideration of your application within 60 days of receipt of your denial. The denial rates on reconsideration increase to over 80%. Luckily there are two more options in the process:
appeals and hearings. The highest percentage of approval occurs at the hearing stage. It is strongly urged by those knowledgeable in the process that if you have not had legal representation before this step of the process, you should request it now.
